Default $20 for a box??

Just put a new CD Burner in my computer. I got this one:
http://www.microcenter.com/single_pr...uct_id=0172440

Samsung 52x32x52 Internal IDE CD-RW Drive for $29.99. The next cheapest on they had was $49.99. I saved 20 bucks just because mine didn't come in a box.

Never realized how much cardboard costs I guess.

Good find. I've seen some good reviews on microcenter. All digital cameras are 20% off thru 5-31.

Yeah, I love having that store in the cities here. Kinda like a WalMart for Geeks. The place is huge, and they have just about everything!

I guess that is the advantage of living in a big city. The closest one to me is located near Philly, PA.

Well, worse comes to worse, they got mail order.

I hate mail order, tho. When I want a new toy, I want it now!

Hehe, I know how that feels... but since I'm so cheap and I LOVE to save money I'll wait a couple days for just about anything, if it means I'll get a lower price!
