Go tell that to the average consumer.

Nope I didn't but these things do happen on a daily basis. As a consumer as well, I'm not the type to take advantage of pricing errors. I only take advantage of the hot deals offered on here like that NE $109.99 Intel 530 180 GB SSD. Yummy!

I don't care what is what. I use my laptop for email and browsing the web, that's it. To me, specs don't matter, price does. Besides, there's many people out there that don't understand even basic computer technology, they're never going to understand or appreciate the value of specific specs.

i don't believe there's a streaming option but there's recap videos on their website.
the news is on at 5:30pm. Consumer SOS segment is usually on at around 5:45-6pm

Just want to point out that we've made it 263 pages into an argument without invoking Godwin's Law.

You can stream Global live but only if you are a customer of one one of certain cable providers

http://www.globaltv.com/watchlive/

However, they usually post the newscast/consumer SOS online after it airs.
When your mind says give up, hope whispers "one more try"

Stop assuming and labeling everyone
Also retail price means nothing. I have first hand experience of items being manufactured in China and labour is cheap and markup from the retailer is high.

Same goes with many purchases an average consumer makes. Cars, Tvs...price is and will be the major if not the only factor when one is considering a purchase. I doubt everyone wants to do an in depth analysis and research before every buy

Even an i3 at $279 would have gotten a good amount of sales.

Especially ESPECIALLY when the deal aptly named DOORCRASHER. Any moment of hesitation mean you could missed out on the deal.

I have missed several good deals before because of this, as soon as I finished my research the item is no longer available.

Perhaps Lenovo could compromise and offer the i3s at that price?

+1. Has anyone checked out Invicta's MSRP on amazon? They must be all price errors, because Invicta watches are commonly advertised at 75 - 90% off!

I might bite, but It would really then be a bait and switch.
