So. I know I’m sort of computer smarty-man, but that doesn’t mean I’m checking every single specific component to a computer when it comes in. I mean, there is a level of trust I have for a company to get something right.
That’s why I was shocked when I noticed my machine, which I had specified to have a Gigabyte of RAM in it, only had 512 MB.
That’s right, in addition to the broken pixels on the display, I’ve now got half the RAM I paid for.
I have rarely been so livid.
If they don’t do anything about this, I’m zeroing out the HDD and getting a new sweet monitor for my now useless server at home and using Ubuntu for the rest of my days >:(
