New laptop, YES!

And finally, after all the hassle with Newegg, I have a laptop waiting for me at the local Best Buy:

Going to go pick it up after work (leaving early today hee hee), no shipping hassles, no wait, just BOOM pick it up and take it home!  I'll hook it up and fiddle with it over the weekend, and next weekend I'll start the transfer process in earnest.

Paid a little more than I wanted, but this is a top-end machine and should last for 4-5 years.

Back to hot dogs and noodles for a week...

No new laptop, no refund!

No new laptop for sure.  Newegg redirected it to some place in California, and I live on Oklahoma!  I'm boycotting Newegg forever, and before you throw down $800 think twice about shopping with them, you may never see what you bought OR your money!

I HATE UPS (rant inside)

So, I ordered a laptop from Newegg.  Payment made it, it shipped fast, and arrived in Tulsa on Tuesday..

..where it sat in the UPS facility all day..

..where it was promptly shipped BACK to NewEgg as "undeliverable"!!!

Now, UPS has delivered six packages to me in the past six weeks, and they pick MY BLOODY LAPTOP to screw up on!  And they didn't TRY to contact the seller, Newegg, who has my phoine number!

Now I understand all those UPS drivers chucking packages and running - UPS hires gene-damaged rejects!!

I contacted NewEgg customer service (which is top-notch, by the way) and they're going to RMA it when it gets back and refund my money.  They offered me a $25 discount if I wanted to re-order but no thanks, Best Buy is a bit more expensive but I can walk out with my bloody laptop and not worry that the incompetent morons at UPS will YET AGAIN screw things up!

I wish NewEgg would use FedEx...

Anyway, once I get my money back, it's off to Best Buy.  GRR! I HATE UPS!
