  11. thats who I was going to look at but forgot :oops:

    They are painful to deal with though.

    Need to copy the front and back of your CC and use their form to order stuff.

    Painful I tell ya :p
    I don't really go past there.

    The lapflop in some 4 years old so it needs to be an Ultra ATA100

    Cheers

  12. Walk up to the counter, ask for HDD, hand-over card or cash. As easy as it gets.

    Huh? There is West Melbourne, about 10mins from your work, straight up Spencer St. Or get off the Westgate an exit earlier on Thur/Fri arvo and straight up Widigeridoo Way

  15. Mmm, a (usual) 30-120 minute wait to save $3 in this case, not really a "the best" for this type of savings.
