That is why prior to 2004, all of my shopping was done at Compusa and Walmart. I would line up at Compusa for the midnight sale, then off to Walmart with the wifey. Best Buy was an afterthought back then. Good times though.
We should post a link to this ad whenever someone posts the "This year's ads suck" comment.
It really puts into perspective how much electronics have come down in price.
While we wait for the ads, check out a Best Buy ad from 15 years ago! (1996)

I get a lot of requests for printer recommendations, and I sometimes recommend a $25 HP because of the cheap cartridges and duration of refills. I cannot believe the number of people that have went without a printer for years assuming they still cost hundreds.
since you mention it:P Any recommendations on a good laser printer/multifunction with multi-sheet feeder

I find it interesting that all of these electronics have changed SO much, but the appliances pretty much do the same thing for the same prices...
- a washer/dryer pair for $600....bet we'll see something almost identical at Best Buy again this year for about the same price.
- dishwashers for between $300 and $400 mostly.
- full size fridges for about a grand
- microwaves for a little over a hundred

we got our fisrt pc from Radio Shack in 1996.....the concept of a CDRom drive was so amazing!!! Paid $2500 for that too...and had to pay $800 for a dead hard drive fix after a year.
I must be nuts....I must have gotten my 1st pc(that I spec'd/bought w/my own $) around that time and don't remember paying anywhere near that much but it was from RadioShack
