QVC RIPOFF REGARDING HP MINI 210!!!!!!!!

April 7, 2010

LET ME FIRST SAY THAT I DESPISE HP PRODUCTS BECAUSE OF THEIR PISS POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, THE RUDENESS OF THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE REPRESENTATIVES, AND THEIR PERSISTENT AND DEVIOUS, DECEPTIVE WAYS TO NOT HONOR THEIR ONE YEAR MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY………….WITH THAT BEING SAID, THIS IS ABOUT THE DECEPTIVE AND DEVIOUS SELLING PRACTICE OF HP, ALONG WITH QVC…..

CHECK THIS OUT…………………

QVC IS SELLING THE HP MINI 210 NETBOOK FOR $429.99

AMAZON.COM IS SELLING THE HP MINI 210 FOR $304.99, WHICH IS $125.00 LESS THAN QVC. NOW HERE IS THE DIFFERENCE >>

THE MODEL THAT QVC IS SELLING HAS A 250 GB HARD-DRIVE.

THE MODEL AMAZON.COM IS SELLING HAS A 160GB HARD-DRIVE.

THE ABOVE IS THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE 2 MODELS.

IF YOU WANT TO PAY AN ADDITIONAL $125.00 FOR THE PRIVLEDGE OF A LARGER HARD-DRIVE, GO AHEAD, BUT $125.00 MORE FOR AN ADDITIONAL 60GB OF HARD DRIVE CAPACITY…………I DON’T THINK SO….

I JUST WANTED TO GIVE CONSUMERS A HEADS UP. MANUFACTURER’S OF COMPUTERS WILL USUALLY DO THIS, NOT JUST HP. THEY WILL CHANGE THE SPECS SLIGHTLY FOR QVC AND OTHER SELLERS TO SELL, SO TGHE PROFIT MARGIN FOR BOTH HP, AND IN THIS CASE, QVC IS MUCH GREATER. THE COST TO HP TO INCLUDE A LARGER HARD-DRIVE IS A FEW DOLLARS. I GUARANTEE THAT THEIR ADDITIONAL PROFIT IS OVER $100.00 FOR THE NETBOOKS THEY SELL ON QVC.

CONSUMER BEWARE…………..JUST MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR. DON’T JUST THINK BECAUSE THE ITEM IS ON QVC THAT YOU MUST NE GETTING A GREAT DEAL. THIS IS NOT THE CASE MUCH OF THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IF YOU ALREADY PURCHASED THE NETBOOK FROM QVC, AND REALIZE THAT YOU WILL NEVER USE A 500GB HARD-DRIVE, RETURN IT AND SAVE YOURSELF $125.00 BY BUYING THE NETBOOK SOMEWHERE ELSE. MANY VENDORS ARE SELLING THE HP MINI 210 FOR AROUND $300.00, NOT JUST AMAZON.COM

HERE’S A LITTLE HELPFUL HINT…………..

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A GREAT NETBOOK WITH THE NEWER N450 INTEL ATOM PROCESSOR, GO GET THE ACER AO532H. ACER WAS THE FIRST MANUFACTURER TO COME OUT WITH THE N450 NETBOOK MODELS. THE MSRP IS $299.00. IT IS A MUCH NICER NETBOOK THAN HP, AND THE ACER DOES NOT HAVE THAT STUPID HUMP OF A BATTERY THAT HP HAS!!!!! THE ACER ALSO HAS A 6 CELL BATTERY, BUT IT IS NICELY INTEGRATED INTO THE DESIGN OF THE NETBOOK, WHILE THE HP MODEL LOOKS LIKE IT WAS JUST SLAPPED TOGETHER, AND LOOKS LIKE SHIT!!!!

ONE MORE THING.HP SAYS ITS NETBOOK HAS 9 1/2 HOURS OF BATTERY TIME. THAT IS BULLSHIT. IT IS JUST A BULLSHIT SELLING POINT BECAUSE HP WANTS TO MAKE CUSTOMERS BELIEVE THAT THEIR NETBOOKS HAVE MORE BATTERY TIME THAN THE OTHER MANUFACTURER’S, WHO ALL RATE THEIRS AROUND 8 HOURS.

ACER SAYS THE AO532H  HAS 8 HOURS OF BATTERY TIME. IT IS MORE LIKE 7 HOURS OR SO.

BOTH MODELS HAVE THE N450 PROCESSOR WITH A 6 CELL BATTERY. THE BATTERY LIFE WILL BE ABOUT THE SAME……………………

SO, IN CLOSING, BEWARE OF QVC AND HP. DON’T BUY THE HP MINI 210 FROM QVC, AND IF YOU ALREADY DID, RETURN IT AND SAVE YOURSELF $125.00 BY BUYING THE HP MINI ELSEWHERE. OR PURCHASE THE ACER AO532H AND FORGET ABOUT THAT UGLY BATTERY HUMP THAT HP SLAPPED TOGETHER ON THEIR MINI, LIKE THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
