Without telling us how long you've been a Micro Center customer.
For example, I've been a Micro Center customer long enough to remember when the free flash drive coupons were for 256MB flash drives, and that was a big deal!
Long enough to realize I have no hope of getting anything from here due to shipping and placement of locations.
All the computers had a version of Windows that was pretty much universally hated.
My friend and I went to the new, single-wide storefront at the back of Lane Avenue Shopping Center after we got a phone call that Micro Center actually had a computer on display.
My friend took me there to pick parts for my first PC. I can only remember the CPU which was an Athlon XP 2400.
@JimBob you took it back, way back to the Lane Avenue Microcenter. Good stuff.
I was able to get a mobo for a penny when I bought my Phenom II X4 840 processor... (It still operates, btw.) I've been a fan, ever since.
I remember the days of buying 4MB 72Pin RAM to upgrade a 486 so I could run an upgrade to windows.. Oh yeah and remember "Westerville, OH store" :)
4 Intel CPU generations ago
I've been a Micro Center customer so long that I got catalogs in the mail from MEI/Micro Center selling bulk floppy disks and printer ribbons.
I've been a customer since the Sharonville, OH store opened. I was there on opening day. They were giving out Microcenter Coffee cups.
When I was in college, I used to get a MEI/Microcenter catalog in the mail to my dorm room and would buy 3.5" and 5.25" Floppy Disks in bulk packages of 25 for about 14 cents per disk. The Campus Bookstore charged about $2.50 per disk back then.
I still have my Microcenter mug from the week the Paterson, NJ store opened. The first two machines I built from parts bought in the store used Intel Q6600 processors.
Since before the IBM PS/2 was released although I did buy an IBM PS/2 Model 30 (a blazing fast 4 Mhz 8086) and a Plus Hardcard (20 MB) when they became available. All at the store near the OSU Campus. BTW, I still have the PS/2 (and matching 8512 monitor) and they still work just fine.
My first Micro Center purchase was a 160 MB IDE drive from the Fairfax, VA location.
So long that I remember mail ordering printer ribbons for my Epson MX-80 dot matrix printer. All well as floppy disk and other supplies.
I've been a Micro Center customer long enough, that when I visited the parking lot was under construction.
386 sx 20mhz 2 megs of ram 30 meg hard drive was the upgraded one. 4 megs of ram wouldve cost another 400 bucks. windows 3 (x)
My first computer from Microcenter had a Pentium cpu, 8MB RAM and a 1 GB HDD with Windows 95! :-) Oh and a sound card/14.4kbps modem combo card.
1st Gen iMac...that's all I got to say. Always Marietta, GA location.
Strolled in to buy 1MB of V-Ram for my Cirrus Logic 5430 Onboard PCI video.
Long enough to know its the best with a huge variety and only place i will be shopping for ANY electronics.
Ever since you opened up the Dallas area Storefront in Richardson. When I consulted in Colorado, I'd come down from the Longmont area down into Aurora to that location.
