Whatcha Pay Fer

So, that $99.99 reman WinDoze box from Microcenter? Is it relly supposed to take over 90 minutes to close WinDoze? Didn't think so. Sent the Minion to swap it out (after all of 5 day as a member of the family), and set up the replacement. This one lasted all of 20 hours in the household before catastrophic system failure (sounded like a dead hard drive to me- booted, started, died when had to spool).
I'm beginning to think that the failure rate on these suckers is unacceptable. They're rebuilt by an outfit called JoySys. Now I'm not saying that they suck, I'm just saying that they're 2-for-2 on fail for me.
