Wal-Mart Build Your Own PCs - Page 2

post #11 of 39
I'm not saying you or I would buy from there, but competition breeds lower prices. How many people walk in and buy compaq's and sony's everyday? If walmart starts buying Intel or amd chips, and there is a demand, then WM will probably increase the selection. I'm just stating that this isn't a bad thing. You don't have to shop there.

Also, If they go into this big, then accessories would be needed also. So stuff like fans and other small accessories would be readily available, and cheap.

lol... I am picturing the people at my local walmart trying to sell PCs.

"Excuse me, I'm looking for the computer section..?"

"Oh, ya, it's next to that discount bin of mis-matched shoes"


...

I am more of a virtual shopper for electronics... the only store I will go to is Fry's, and not often either.
