Preferred Solution: Mishandled Price Match/Price Protection -- who to contact?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Question: Price match?

hi, I read across some posts saying that Lenovo will do price match once for the order. I just bought one U330 two week ago. Now, the price dropped more than 10%. Is it possible to do price matching? Thanks.

I bought a Thinkpad SL410 on the Lenovo outlet on June 19 and days later the Outlet was offering a summer kick off sale with all products at 50% off until June 24 I believe, well the laptop that I bought was 399.99 at the time but when it was on sale the price dropped to 338.70. The same exact model. I thought of purchasing another one at that price but if I wanted to return the first one i ordered then I would be charged a 15% restocking fee. So my question is, Is there any way I can get a price match for the laptop I purchased, since the price dropped only a couple days later? Also by the way that laptop is supposed to arrive today, so I have not opened it or anything. Any input is helpful, Thanks

Answer:Is there some sort of price match that can be done?

i think there is a 2 or 3 weeks price match guarantee, provided you order the exact same spec. Just save the new order into the checkout trolley, then call up Lenovo customer support and requote the transaction number and new order number.

this has happened to me a few times now...I buy a product through Amazon and a few days after it ships the price drops...sometimes by a decent amount...anyone know if Amazon refunds you the difference in price if bought within a few days or a week?

Answer:Amazon price match refund?

I've ordered some coffee for $12 and before it arrived it went on sale for $2 for a day and they refunded me $10. It was a case of Nescafe Instant coffee pouches, 12 boxes of 7.
It was an automatic refund. I just happened to check my bank account online and saw the refund from Amazon.

I recently purchased a W520 from the Lenovo Outlet  for $1291 (excluding taxes, shipping etc.) - Condition NewCore i7 2860 2.5 GhzWin 7 ProfessionalNvidia Quadro 20004 gb RAMFHD Screen 1920 X 1080No Fingerprint ScannerDVD Drive160GB SSD9 Cell Battery1 Year Depot Warranty The next morning (less than 12 hours later) I rechecked the Lenovo Outlet website and see that the exact same configuration was available for $936! That was a more than $350 dollar difference! I also found another laptop which was the exact same configuration but had an additional 12gb ram as compared to the above configuration. Even this model was selling for $1108 almost $200 cheaper than what I paid. As expected, I was furious and immediately called Customer Support. After the initial there is nothing we can do, they finally connected me to sales and the lady there said she can prepare a RMA for returning my laptop and I can place an order for a new one. She refused to cancel the current order even though it had only been < 12 hours. Anyways, I asked her what other options I had and later she said she could do a price match provided I add the above said machines to a cart and send it to her. When I went back to the outlet website, the $936 laptop was out of stock but the $1108 laptop was still in stock so I quickly added it and mailed her the cart, even though it had an additional 12gb of RAM.

I ordered t520 last Monday from Lenovo SPP, upgraded to 500 GB hard drive, but kept 2GB memory (to save money by purchasing more memory from newegg). It was shipped yesterday. Today, Lenovo SPP offers coupon code USX5THINK0328 with 5% off, free upgrade to 4GB of memory and 500 GB of hard disk. So I did a quote with basic 2GB memory and 250GB of hard disk (but with the coupon it is actually 4GB memory and 500GB hard drive), which is ~$50 less than my order. I called lenovo asking for a price match. But the representative refused me because the new quote has a better memory (4GB) than my order (2GB), they can only price match to exactly same configuration. Even talked to a manager, same answer and not lucky either. I felt this policy asking for exactly same configuration is stupid at least for my specific situation. If I could upgrade my memory at the beginning, my order would have been price matched to a same lower price and even with more memory!

Answer:Lenovo Refused to Price Match t520 because the new configuration is BETTER

Lenovo only price match a computer with the exact same configuration, this is their policy. Unless someone from higher up intervenes then you are unlikely to get the price differences back.

The Lenovo W700 I ordered shipped on August 19th and is somewhere in customs as I post this. I discovered the price has dropped by almost $300 so I requested a quote and called Lenovo Customer Service to request a price match. I was able to order every component on my original system the same with the exception of the WiFi option.  My system is configured with     42X5669  SBB INTEL WIMAX+3X3WIFI  - This option is not currently available       Lenovo states in order to price match the parts must be identical; no exceptions, even if the price difference is $1.00.The option available now is - 42X6325 SBB INT.WIFI LINK5300 I have 21 days from August 19th to request a price match but unless all options are exactly the same Lenovo will not match the price. I was told that if the exact same card is not offered again, along with any other items not available when I request a quote for a price match, I am out of luck. Any suggestions? Thank you. 

Answer:Lenovo won't Price match, configured WiFi card no longer offered

300 USD in USA for Thinkpad is quite significant almost 15% of the laptop's total cost.

Today, the price of gold sits around $1660/fine ounce, maybe Huawei should put their E173 and E220 drivers on wall st. The price per unit would surely surpass that of gold before the close of trade.
On the Vodacom website there are two downloads for the E220, a pc software for vodafone and a VMC update for the dashboard. I downloaded and installed the software for Vodafone onto the laptop, and thereafter dowloaded and updated the E220 with the VMCLite_E220_3_2_1_156_standard program.

Now, since the modem's dashboard could be updated, it would be safe to say that the modem was detected, right?

When I moved from the Amiga to the PC in late '94 I spent quite a few on that PC. Just the 16MB of RAM cost me the equivalent of $700. So I took a look at one of the local PC chains for a pre-made PC with about the same price.

Not adjusted for inflation I could buy today: Core i7 3770K, 16GB RAM, GeForce 660 Ti, 120GB SSD + 2TB HDD, IPS 1080p monitor, decent gaming keyboard and mouse.

Adjusted for inflation:Core i7 3930K, 16GB RAM, GeForce 680, 120GB SSD + 2TB HDD, two IPS monitors, decent gaming keyboard and mouse.​
Of course if I chose the components myself I'd choose differently, but then, I'd never spend that kind of money on a PC these days.

Answer:What PC can you buy for the price of your first PC?

Don't forget $500 CD burners (2x speed), now 52x are $20 and they also burn DVDs. We've come a long way in 20 years - I'm sure that people looking back to 2013 from 2033 will laugh at how slow our PCs were. If they still make PCs after the World Financial Wars of 2014, 2018, & 2020.

Hi gang... desparate for a new cpu as mine has died. But trolling various sites some claim the Athlon XP will have a major price drop today (to sell stocks before the thoroughbred), but none of the retailers in the UK have cut their prices! I really don't wanna lash out if 2 days later 30% gets knocked off the price of an XP (plus I can go for a 2000 instead of an 1800), that would be really annoying! So has anyone any ideas if these major price cuts are nothing more than a rumour or have there been big cuts in the states?


Answer:When are the XP price cuts?

Yea i think its here too, well i hope so anyway ... it'll probably just take a few more days/weeks to come into affect

Question: Q6600 price

Like many people I had been waiting for Intel's July 22 price cuts before buying this CPU for my new computer. However, though the price was cut to $266 USD by Intel, most retailers are still selling the CPU for much more than this because of the very high demand. In some cases the price has gone back up after the initial price cut. Newegg, for example, lowered the price to $299 USD but has now raised it to $375 USD. My local computer shop is selling it for $328 CDN and I've seen it online for around $300 CDN.

I've heard something similar has occurred with other parts in the past and I'm wondering if anybody can accurately predict what might happen to the price of this CPU in the near future. Do you think it will come down near the $266 mark within a few days, or do you think it will hold at this price for months, or maybe even rise because of the huge demand? I'm anxiously waiting to get a new computer and at $300-330 the Q6600 still fits into my budget, but if it is a matter of waiting a couple days to save $30-50 then I could stand to wait. Thoughts?

i was thinking of buying a new graphic card and i was looking at two

the X800 xl and the 6600GT

i was looking at the 6600gt becuase i want to save money, is there a GIANT difference between these two cards or is the x800 the one to go

Answer:price or perfomance

I let you decide if it worth it or not and just give you the graphs

Throw out low and high to get a good average and we find that pretty much dead on you getting a average of around 15 more fps with the x800XL over the 6600GT. This makes the x800XL a significant better card then the 6600GT. Is it worth the extra money for that performance increase is up to you.

It is important to note that the x800xl of corse does better on games ATI good at but even in the games nvidia is usually better at the x800XL still does better then geforce 6600GT.

Question: Upgrade price

Apparently when you buy video cards from EVGA they extend a 90 day upgrade only price for new cards, so i was thinking in 2 months upgrading my 6800GT i just got with maybe a 7800 GT or GTX, is the upgrade WORTH the extra price (roughly 200 i think (have to confirm this will later tonight) ) to get the new card, or will it perform at roughly the same as my 6800?

the rest of my new rig is 2 gigs of ram, a8n-e MoBo, 3800+ X2 AMD, and a 160 SATA seagate hard drive.

Thanks guys for all the help

(BTW my 6800GT was roughly 275) Thanks guys.

Answer:possible PS3 price change?

Sony is using all the wrong economic methods.... they were trying to do a global release with only 500,000 consoles.... I think they're depending on the price of the console to give them a more steady revenue, otherwise if it was cheap everyone would go out and buy one straight away. But when it's 400USD, there will be the nerds that go out and buy it at first, but most people will wait for the price to reduce.

I'm afraid I have very bad news.Virut is a polymorphic file infector with IRCBot functionality which infects .exe, .scr files, downloads more malicious files to your system, and opens a back door that compromises your computer. With this particular infection, the safest solution and only sure way to remove it effectively is to reformat and reinstall the OS. According to this Norman White Paper Assessment of W32/Virut, some variants can infect the HOSTS file and block access to security related web sites. Other variants of virut can even penetrate and infect .exe files within compressed files (.zip, .cab, rar). The Virux variant is an even more complex file infector which can embed an iframe into the body of web-related files and infect script files (.php, .asp, .htm, .html, .xml ). When Virut creates infected files, it also creates non-functional files that are corrupted beyond repair and in some instances can disable Windows File Protection. In many cases the infected files cannot be disinfected properly by your anti-virus. When disinfection is attempted, the files become corrupted and the system may become irreparable. The longer virut remains on a computer, the more critical system files will become infected and corrupt so the degree of infection can vary. The virus disables Windows File Protection by injecting code into the "winlogon.exe" process that patches system code in memory.CA Virus detail of W32/VirutThe virus has a number of bugs in its code, and as...

Hi JayJayC and welcome to Eightforums,

From your post I understand that you live in Europe. Well, as with almost every product that is being sold in Europe as well as in the USA the prices in Europe are far far far higher (>25% to be exact). In almost all cases the only thing you have to do is to change the $ sign for a € sign and you have the price in Europe. Which is, due to the currency change ratio's, approximately 25% higher.

Don't ask me why this is the way it is. I guess it has something to do with on of these options ==>
A) The USA manufacturers like to screw Europe
B) USA export taxes
C) Europe import taxes
D) Nelie Kroes (member of the EU parliament)
Since you live in Europe it is not possible to buy the product 'like you were in the USA'. So just get used to being screwed....

Like SunTzu said ==> "If you can't beat them, join them".

ps. Why didn't you buy an upgrade copy in the period october 2012-january 2013? It was only $30 of €30 (= $40) then. That's how I got my copy .

2.- Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Operating System Software - English, DVD - $300.00

does the second one have 64BIT and 32BIT both or why is there such difference between the price?

Answer:price for windows 7 pro

Hi -

Not sure where the exact terminology came from or why one contains "English"; the other does not. One says x64, etc...

One thing that I do see clearly in the 1st - "OEM" = Original Equipment Manufacturer (Dell, HP, etc...). An OEM version of Windows 7 contains the OS + OEM added "features" - the garbage pre-installed software, trial versions, etc... An OEM version dies with the system it came installed on.

I suggest that you purchase a full retail version of Windows 7. A full retail version can be transfered to another system - in other words... you own the copy for life.

From Microsoft -->

Happy Holidays !

Answer:Best possible upgrades for price?

In your price range,you are probably looking at a better power supply
and a better video card.
Maybe an nvidia 460 series.
Just make sure you check the length of the card and make sure
it will fit in your case.
That should leave enough for a power supply.
Don't get a cheap power supply.
There is a quad core processor available for that board,but it's about
$250 by itself and your dual isn't too bad.
Still want a better power supply before you go that route.
This should be a cpu compatability list for the motherboard
in your computer.

I'm in the process of buying a Lenovo x201 laptop while these crazy Black Friday sales are starting. I've narrowed the choice down to two computers with two different processors.

The thing is, I can either pay $835 for an x201i that includes an Intel Core i3-370M Processor (2.40GHz, 3MB L3, 1066Mhz FsB) and can't be upgraded, or I can pay $1.3k for an x201 laptop with the same stats that has an Intel Core i7-620M Processor (2.66GHz, 4MB L3, 1066MHz FSB).

Is the better processor is worth the extra $450?

I'm starting college as a CS major, so I'll be using it everyday things as well as programming. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as this is my first laptop! :]

Answer:Processor vs. Price

I would say no, it's not worth the extra $450 if the cpu is the only difference.

Hey everyone,
Coming up in the next few weeks I'll be traveling quite a bit for work. Rather than carrying two laptops (Since neither are ultrabooks lol), I'm thinking of picking up a tablet. Ideally I'd like something mid-range or better, with native keyboard support, like the Surface line because I like to use physical keyboards (the extra battery life is a nice plus), a front facing camera for skyping with my husband, and preferably 6+ hours of battery life so I can use it on-and-off during international flights. In terms of price, I'd like to keep it under $500. And I don't really care if it's RT or full Windows 8.1, because I will mostly just use it for social media, YouTube, Netflix, Skype, email, and Facebook Messenger.
What does everyone recommend? Or is there something awesome coming out in the next few weeks that I should wait for?
Thanks everyone! :)
Update: I don't mind if it's refurbished/used, and I'd kinda prefer ~10", but not a must.
Any recommendations on where to find the best deals for refurbished tablets?

Answer:Best mid-price tablet?

Inexpensive options to consider (current gen that is) that come to mind are the Asus Transformer T100 and original Surface RT.
The RT isn't really a speed demon, but it can be had for great prices along with a cover. ($150+)
The T100 is a 10" tablet notable for the included keyboard dock and pricetag of ~$3-400 (??)
the baseline Dell Venue 11 Pro clocks in at $500, but keyboards can add $100 more.
the first-gen Surface Pro has similar pricing, but battery life falls short.
If you won't mind refurb or used, a previous gen used tablet such as the Lenovo IdeaPad Lynx or other device might be found for a good price. however as is the nature, it varies widely.

What should one pay for a used monitor? We have been offered a Dell N20 Metro M20w but haven't agreed on a price.

Answer:How do you price a used monitor?

I would look around the internet and sites such as eBay or Craigs List to see what the same model is selling for. Used PC hardware doesn't really keep its value and used hardware sells at whatever similar models sell for, so also check what similar models sell for.

It doesn't appear that the info you provided is correct, you should verify the model number of the monitor. Actually it appears to be maybe two models. The Metro M20W is a 20" LCD that sold around $300 new in 2006, but a new 20" monitor now sell for $100 brand new. And Metro isn't even a good brand, so maybe like $25.

Answer:any good for its price?

Doesnt look to bad, although i'm guessing they're charging quite the high dollar for the paint just going by the specs on it. How much can you get it from your old boss?

Question: Sale Price

Morning All,

I am considering selling my system to upgrade to the new 2011 socket. Could someone please give me a rough estimate of my currents system's value and the best place to sell it online? I do not want to use ebay as the percentage they take is far to high!

System Specs:

i7 2600
1Tb Seagate Barracuda HD
Asus HD6950 2Gb
8Gb Kingston Genisis 1600MHz RAM
Asus P8P76 Pro Rev 3 Motherboard
Windows 7 Professional
Antec 300 Case
600W Modular PSU (unsure of make of the top of my head)

If anyone could give me a rough price I would be grateful. I know how much it would be new but the second hand market I have no idea!

Thanks for your time.


Answer:Sale Price

See what a comparable machine is selling for on eBay and advertise it on your local CraigsList.
