Compaq laptop woes

Mitch is at the end of his tech-tether. He bought a $1900 lemon Compaq laptop, and their customer service people have given him an incredible run-around. He’s created a page detailing his tale of woe — maybe if he gets enough blogjuice, someone at Compaq will wake up and take care of him (maybe they’ll change their anti-customer service policies, too!).

The moral of this story is: if you feel like buying a Compaq notebook computer, go out and buy yourself a lump of clay SHAPED like a notebook computer. You’ll get about as much use from the one as from the other�actually, now that I think of it, you can make the lump of clay into an attractive ashtray that you can give your Dad on Father’s Day, which is more than I can say for the notebook computer.
