About three weeks ago, my computer took a crap on me. No, not literally. The screen quit working. It was time for a new computer, So, off shopping I went. I had researched prices, memory, and all the other good stuff. I figured out exactly what computer I wanted. So, I went to the store to get it and low and behold, they didn't have it in stock. I looked around and didn't find anything that I wanted in my price range. So off to a second store I went. This store turned out to be much better than the first. I found a computer that was sweet. Lots of memory, lots of extras and in my price range. I had the sales person take it out of the case that it was locked behind and when he was doing that I saw a computer in there that was cheaper and wasn't on display. I asked him to take it out as well so I could see if there were any specs on the box so I could tell what kind of computer it was. He did as requested and I look at the box and there was nothing on the box other than the brand name. Now, for most people there would have been no problem. they would have just put the unknown computer back and would have bought the other one. Well, I am not like most people. I stood there with two computer boxes in my hand contemplating. There was this mystery computer and the one that I knew everthing about. It was a real problem for me. In the end I decided on the mystery computer. I know, not conventional, but this is me we are talking about. I did, however, ask the sales person if I didn't like it could I bring it back. He said I could and that sealed the deal. When I got it home and opened the box, it was the computer that I had originally chosen that the other store didn't have, only in smaller size. So my mystery computer in a box turned out to work out for the best. My shopping techniques may not be conventinal, but they work for me.
