Fry's 900Mhz Celeron fiasco

Monster Hardware has posted an article on "What to do when a Retail or Vendor Problem Occurs" Dave was one of the lucky few who after some haggling actually received a CPU out of the Fry's 900Mhz Celeron fiasco, after having his order cancelled. Some of his methods might help others increase their chances of getting vendor satisfaction also :
On Monday, September 30th, Outcast (yes, here at our very own Monster-Hardware) gave me a call; he let me know that Outpost had placed some Intel Celeron 900Mhz retail boxed processors up for sale at $9.90 each. Obviously, this was a great deal! I occasionally build simple computers for friends, family, etc. and thought that having one or two of these on the shelf wouldn’t be a bad idea since I had a couple of builds coming up
