I was checking different notebooks this weekend at Circuit City. The one I did like was "upgraded" with Fire Dog and so they wanted an extra $40.00 on the purchase. I ask about the broken tampered factory seal and he states all notebooks or most of them have the upgrade.
Could this be a way to re-sale returned notebooks and the cover up is the upgraded Fire Dog service.
They state the upgrade is composed of removing unwanted software and optimized settings for a faster computer.
How can they know what I want to delete?
What a coincidence, all the notebooks left for the one I wanted had the green sticker with the broken seal. I decided to find a computer that didn't had the green sticker at a reasonable price. All of a sudden the seller said it was ok and was going to waive the 40 bucks as he did not want me to buy a computer I really did not want. How generous of his part...
Has anyone had similar experience with Circuit City and the extended CC warranty?
