Then you should have linked a real shop, not some joke **** like ebay.
It seems in the last couple of years, technology has been doing OPPOSITE of what it should be....meaning old technology is supposed to be getting cheaper, but nooo it seems their thoughts now are 'well it's rarer, and harder to get, so we'll crank up the price'
Try and wrap your head around this......the OEM seems to be $10 MORE expensive than the retail at zipzoomfly..........
I should be able to go pick up a freakin mobile XP for like $40 damnit....can't believe they are cranking the prices like that.
Now I really dont want to break my XP-Mobile....like you said, makes me feel like I got some rare unbelievable processor or something.
Heres my CPU:
didn't think they even still had it on newegg.....$105 freakin dollars....I think I paid like $85 for it last november.
