I'm on their mailing list and saw that this morning. I was up to the point of entering my credit card and just decided that I really didn't need it. Shipping was $18 so the thing would cost me around $40. There are three separate rebates totaling $90 and the up front outlay is $110.
One thing I noticed was that part of the ad promised 7 expansion slots but there appear to be only 2 plus an AGP. A misprint I guess.
I figure I'll check my parts closet and see if I have a decent processor, memory, and vid card lying around. If so, maybe I'll get it even though I have no need for it. I must be in a buying mood for some reason. I just bought a water cooling kit that is probably pretty much crap just because I want to quiet one of my rigs and figured I'd try some WC. If I like it perhaps I'll buy a better setup for my main PC.
I just go to the tiger direct outlet store. I don't think I would order stuff online though, just because you can get better deals at newegg and other such sites. I just picked up a hitachi drive from tiger though.
Tiger direct is alright they have gotten everything ive ordered so far... I would get this but man that case is fugly and the board is only alright... lol I see a million of computers in that case selling on ebay BLAHHHH
@Droban: Isn't that in Elmhurst?
You gotta admit though, for 20 dollars its like getting the case and mobo for free and you are really only paying for say the keyboard, mouse, and speakers. Personally I'd pick this up if it were 20 dollars after instant rebates or something for a cheap LANing PC or something to house Folders.
The last time I was at Tiger Direct, a guy returned a refurbished IBM T23 that he had gotten in the back room specials. (for those of you that have never been to a Tiger Outlet, it is a room piled full of miscellaneous parts, lots of cables an such) He hended it to the cashier and after he walked away, she let it drop about a foot and a half to the bottom of the cashier counter stand. WHAM!
Ironic thing was a 10 minutes earlier, I was thinking 240 bucks was a pretty good deal for one of the T23s, just to have an extra at the office in case someone broke their desktop and needed a computer. I decided that I didn't need it afterall.
