They have zero in all their stores. They have real time stock checks.

I think you just wasted $60.

....

i guess i'm buying one to.

They have the name of the product and a description, no mention or it being broken....or even refurbished.

I pay the money, they send me the product I ordered.....isn't that how things work?
