Hump day and a new monitor

By , April 23, 2008 11:14 pm

Looked at the 20″ Acer on the Wallyworld website again this am and they had dropped the price to 184.88. Decided to go out and about and see what was available in the stores around here. First stop was at J’ville where they had the same one as online but the price tag was 228.88. Pass. Next stop was the one in Lenlock. Same thing. Had them in stock but 228.88. Southward we go. Next stop Office Max. I had tried their website and the prices were higher than Wallyworld so this stop was just to verify what I had seen online. Well I got a shock! They had a 22″ Soyo for 199.99 and a 20″ for 169.99 among others. All sale prices but still. The 22″ was a hundred dollars off! Went next door to Circuit City to take a quick look and went back and got the 22″. Added their 1 year screw it up and they still replace it warranty for another 25 bucks and walked out 250 poorer but with a super nice monitor. Model is MT-NI-DYLM2286 for anyone interested. Wallyworlds online price is 229.88. So glad I didn’t end up getting one through them.

And it’s got built in speakers. Not the greatest but they’ll do, and I don’t have a pair taking up desk space anymore. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Now I just got to get busy and do some website work to pay for it… Tis late so am gonna do just a bit more reading feeds (on my nice new BIG monitor) and then call it a night. Till tomorrow…

    Cool! Nothing like a nice, new monitor. Office Max usually doesn’t have great prices, EXCEPT when you catch them on sale/closeout. Then they can have some STUNNING prices. I’m sitting here looking at my 19″ CRT monitor (well, actually, my SON’S 19″ CRT monitor–but someone GAVE him a 19″ 4/3 LCD, the lucky stiff, so he’s letting me use this one–nice, but somewhat bulky) and thinking….not now, the way finances are going, but not too long down the road, me thinks…

    Things are going OK. Hopefully I’ll get a little bit more done today than yesterday, but I did make some progress. Got a minor technical glitch taken care of that I had been trying to overcome for quite a while, but I think is working now. Paradoxically, this means I will have more to do in the short run, but things will be better in the long run. Ain’t that the way it goes…

    Now, for that second cup of coffee….
