Im going to have to agree. I had my car break down on me and I had to travel from the San Fernando Valley into Downtown LA 3 times per week. At first, I thought it was going to be a pain... until I realized that spending $5 on a day pass (I think month passes were $45) and taking the 412 Commuter Express was an option. Not only was I saving money (my old car was a 280Z turbo, got 18MPG if I was lucky), but also the headache of driving into town every day. I spent most of my trip there doing school work on my laptop.

I've since moved to a part of California where public transportation is just terrible (Ventura County), so I need to have my own car to even think about getting to work in under 2 hours for a 25 mile trip.

This is why I never cared to much about gaming journalism outside of a few YouTube channels I trust. Everyone is either bought out, or pushing an agenda that offends me. Hell, I stopped reading PCGamer around the time I saw a banner ad for the ME3 Review. You know what it said? "Reviewed on PC". NO SHIT, I'd hope that PCGamer is reviewing things on PC.

Super late to this, but I would just like to note that for the large national bank that I work for, we require machines to be on, but have no users logged in, for us to do a remote Windows XP to Windows 7 migration. This is mostly so we can run a Scanstate against the machine prior to reimaging it.

No, he cannot return it in the US. From Best Buy's Return Website

Nonreturnable Items: Opened computer software, movies, music and video games can be exchanged for the identical item but cannot be returned for a refund

He can get an identical copy of the software, thats it. No refund. Why? Because people buy software, return the disk, but burn the CD key so it's no longer valid.

Also, you've never worked at a retail store's computer repair before. Its "We can look into it... at a discounted rate" or if they do look into it for free, its put on low priority and put off until someone finally gets around to it.

Make headway at work. Continue to let things deteriorate at home.
