    You are probably going to need to give an indication of your geographical location to get any sensible answers.

    Yes, but if you are in the US, you may not be interested in an Online store shipping from Wagga Wagga.

    Re: CD ROM DRIVE

    I have foud that here in the greater Seattle area that most OEM's are competive and get good service. Besides if I have a problem with the device I can reach accross the counter and get a hand full if they will not listen. Can't do that with a 800 number.
    I have even had good luck with CompUSA and Best Buys in the local stores. Things my be cheaper across the net , but when you throw in the shipping and NO support except for a long wait on a 800 number are you really getting a good price.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Head over to <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.pricewatch.com/>Pricewatch</A> and check it out. This is the mother of all cheap internet deals.

    From experience, watch out online, and make sure the return/exchane policy is posted - lest you get burned. You want your hardware to work when you get it and if it doesn't, you can't hop in a car and go back to the store.

    Cough cough good luck finding a good deal!
