Default Stupid people and harddrives

Dont ya just hate stupid people and the stupid questions they ask lol

Been trying to help someone with building a computer and they want a 500 gig sata harddrive Hiatche.

The harddrive they want is $700 and he wont see it getting 2 300 gig satas for $266 including shipping.

he seems to think bigger is better and if he has 2 smaller harddrives then that is crap.

I want to smash my head against the wall lol.

Imagine if stupid people didn't exist? Then you wouldn't be so smart after all, would you? See stupid people are what balances this world out. We need stupid people. Mostly to make money off of.
