Oh, I forgot. If you buy a computer at Costco, you get concierge service for the life of the computer (might be all electronics, but for sure computers). Also, I had to exchange a computer I'd purchased in OR and then went right on the road. Did the exchange in CA with no hassle - they even handled the fact that OR has no sales tax and CA does. No waiting for a half hour while someone they tried to find someone with a brain to handle the transaction. Very good company to deal with.
