My experience is that NewEgg seems to cater to gamers, folks who think  
they know all about computers but actually just know a little bit  
about Windows.

Their customers certainly don't know where to find good prices, I  
rarely see anything newegg is selling that can't be had more cheaply  

The convenience is nice. They have a good selection and ship quickly,  
but they don't seem to understand servers or Unix people very much.

Just my personal opinion of course.
