He wants one of those too. But he is being an jerk about the price. I have told him the price, but he thinks he can get it for the same price i buy it from a disty.

Plus he wants free installation and lessions.

I am not looking forward to the lessions on as this guy is a 50 year old ideot.

Too much money to burn. 4 weeks after he gets the computer, he get a virus, try to claim warranty on it. The virus completely f**ks over the system. When I tell him it going to be 2 hours labour for me to Reinstall Windows Xp ($120 per hour on-site labor at 3 hours responce), he claims that he is a poor boy.

Not only does he have mony to burn, but he has a PLASMA TV, and about 4 cars (3x BMW, 1x Merc) in his driveway. Plus the guy has $50 and $100 bill slying around the place like I have on my chum change.

The entire system including printer and TFT monitor was about AU$4300. (Fools with too much cash deserve to pay an additional margin.)

I don't know about a cure, but the movie Fight Club made it more tollerable.
