Just ordered one for pickup. The only one of my computers that can use it as an upgrade is my 2nd HTPC :D

How did you pick up 4 cpu? They limit it to one per household.

I can't verify this particular claim, but the salespeople at that store do tend to be a little out of the loop when it comes to deals and new products. They mail out huge newsletters full of discounts that they have no clue about until they look.
I was in there a couple days ago looking for a tablet and I did see that they had a pretty massive case full of processors. I wouldn't be surprised if he walked out with several.

I made the mistake of prepaying for one that a friend is going to pick up. Didn't know about their policy change for an authorized pickup person. So I had to place a "Pay at pickup" order also. I have a connection at Kansas City and St. Louis for these.

I was at the MC in Dallas. I refreshed my phone in the store @ 10:15am and it said that they were sold out. The guy that worked there said most were reserved by website (about 5)

Still, one helluva deal

Just picked up 4 at Denver store they have so many in stock!!

LMAO, I went to purchase one to replace the CPU in my Dell Optiplex... Zero in stock at Denver. Was planning on stopping in anyway to get some fan filters, will just double check in-store while I am there.
