I am 15, and as soon as I turn 16 I want to quit this job and work for the geek squad at best buy.
Why the **** does everybody wanna work at Best Buy? I worked there yea, it sux working there, the ppl are dumb, and you dont get into Geek Squad as soon as you sign up. Also, you have to be 18 to be in Geek Squad (here anyways). The pay sux for the job end of story. Me i work at FRYs now and am a floor manager. Discount sucks and the ppl that go there are dumber than at Best Buy. Meh, it works right?

i saved up around £1000 over a year. if i had know HOW to build a computer back then, and that it was much cheaper, i could have done alot better than a dell for that sort of money, but "meh" i am happy with it, especially now it has the X800GTO in.

before you buy from although its very good check out and Those three websites are the best and cheapest. Often i find scan to be the most expensive but they do have a good "today only" section. Make sure you check all them before buying it could save you easily over £40 or so.
