Memory Costs

by GoldnArch In reply to Memory

-Faster and more ram for cheaper... Recently I saw a 256 Meg Ram PC3200 for 2.99. however I try to upgrade an older PC Gateway Select 933 and the same amount of PC133 256 costs more then 129.99. For the price of three sticks I can buy a new CPU with OS and more RAM. This is getting crazy.

Yeah I saw that same special, on TigerDirect as I recall? Memory prices are a true supply/demand marketplate. We had some RamBus computers and it turned out to be cheaper to buy brand new non-RamBus computers than the upgrade the Rambus computers with more memory.

Unfortunately we live in a disposable age where replacement is more cost effective then repair. It doesn't help either that much of our manufacturing base has gone oversees. I like getting good deals like anyone else but I don't want to purchase a new machine every time I want an upgrade a computer. This has even effected selling re-conditioned equipment. Why purchase used when for a few dollars more you can get new! It's irritating for sure, I am with you on this one.

iPod - Free ?

by GoldnArch In reply to Memory

<p>Recently I heard about this website where you can get a free iPod.</p>
<p><a href="http://ipods.freepay.com/?r=22930008">http://ipods.freepay.com/?r=22930008</a></p>
<p>Being a little nervous I researched and found that they were featured on CNN and again discussed on MSNBC.  Further I found them also on WIRED magazine.  Course there are a few items the mentioned which are interesting.</p>
<p>You signup using the link <a href="http://ipods.freepay.com/?r=22930008">http://ipods.freepay.com/?r=22930008</a> and of course you get SPAM email from about 10 different sites which seems terrible but managing to unsubscribed would be easy.  You have to signup for an option.  Credit card application or online service (cheapest one is $0.99 cents).  LAST requirement you have to find five other people to signup also for an option.  Seems like a scam but CNN and MSNBC both indicated it is true and does work though the requirements are a lot though a free iPod of your choice seems reasonable.  (Yes they do limit one per household)  WIRED seemed excited about it and indicated that you could actually get a free ipod.</p>
<p>Let me know if you try it or have done this...  </p>
