And now my turn. Since there are a certain percent of Ram chips that will
turn out to be bad, I've occasionally been able to get a best price on line,
then take that to my local retailer and challenge him to match it. If they
do, you get two benefits: instant gratification, plus the ability to whip
out your book, install the chip and verify that it works right on the spot.
This happened to me at a CompUSA once­­when the first chip they handed me
failed to work, they brought out a second one, I tried that one, it worked,
and life was good again.
