In the Retail world... yes. However I can guarentee you that Dell or HP
etc doesn't sink $500.00 into their bundles. Which is why I don't feel
bad tossing it. If it really was 500 bucks worth I'd want to keep it
around to use. But since the OS/Office/Multimedia bundle I got probably
cost acer $75 dollars (if that) .... It's in the boxes I keep so I can
do a warranty return.
But frankly. As long as people keep building software that hepses
(southern accent) me I'll be over in the corner cursing wildly.
