Smokin deal - Compaq AMD64/3400 $450 AR
This is a smoking deal. Even if you have to wipe the crappy OS that comes with it. Or live with a dual boot, if you must.

Assuming you dealt with all the hassle of purchasing from unknown OEM vendors, the above would cost you at least $750 and you would have to put it together yourself and pray it all works.
There's only 100 machines per store, and there's three stores in the St. Louis area.
I expect these loss leaders to be gone soon!
I have no idea if they are offering the same sale at their other non-St. Louis stores.
