  • Super Duper computer sale in Colinsville

    Anybody ever been to one of those computer / electronics liquidation "sales" like the one at Gateway Center this weekend?

    Never been, not going, just curious.

    Do they have a cover charge to get in the joint?

    Yes, they have a cover charge. Not sure of the quality of the puters, but we bought a couple of video games a few years ago and they turned out to be junk.

      I've never actually been to one, but I think the general consensus is that they suck big donkey balls.
      To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.

        not worth it.

        cover charge + crappy components at mediocre prices = poor deal.

        If you're looking for specific older hardware, it might be worth a shot, but otherwise it's a waste of time.

          I have been once -

          If you are looking for cheap software for outdated programs - you can get it.

          Some decent deals on some computer components but you can do almost as well at the store with a real warranty.

          I was surpised that Gateway was there selling computers -

          My sister is going - she got my kids some nice preschool software lastyear and will probably get some more. She goes with a geek who is top notch so they must have some value. If you guys need anything let me know and I will ask her to see if they have it before you go.

                What CompUSA sale?

                I have been to the one in Collinsville twice. My brother in law bought a barebones system and was quite happy with it until it reached that magic point of no longer being powerful enough.

                Overall, I think its a waste of the cover charge.
                When you say to your neighbor, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night if that's alright with you," what you really mean is, "We're having a loud party on Saturday night."

                    If it's anything like the one in Wentzville at the old Belz Mall - don't waste your time. A bunch of low-lifes trying to unload their crap on unsuspecting consumers.
