Those are both good pieces of advice.
I too have had mixed luck with rebates, but I figured that since it
was only about $4 more expensive than the best price I'd found so far,
that it was worth the risk. Also, as the ad is now up, I see that it
is a manufacturer's rebate.
The one at compusa is a 980, (124 on the site you mentioned,) so I'd
rather go with that, but thanks for the link, as I didn't know you
could get them OEM. Besides, the disk will make a fine coaster ;)
