CompUSA RIP

December 8, 2007 at 9:56 pm | Posted in Macintosh | Leave a comment

The day CompUSA announced they would close all their stores by the end of the year, my Macbook hard drive decided to call it quits. I went to the nearest CompUSA and got myself a 160Gb replacement drive for under $90. One reason they’re going out of business – I waited over 30 minutes just to have someone open locked cabinets to get notebook hard drives, even though they were in large boxes that made them difficult to steal. Second reason – their Apple mini-store wasn’t in good shape – they didn’t have any iMacs on sale. Still, it’s sad to see CompUSA go, having good and bad experiences with them over the past 20+ years.
