I think the Omen is the one considered the PITA to work with for upgrading, if you can get one for $184 it's still a steal just to gut for parts, an i7-7700 on it's own is $300 from newegg new, just rip out the parts you want to salvage and you'll already have a good step forward towards building a new rig


The 570-p033w is the one that's a pain, mainly cuz the CPU connector is inline with the pcie x 16 slot. Usually the CPU connector is parallel to the ram, on the right most side of the mobo. I would think the omen is easier to deal with, since it already has a GTX 1070 in it and so they probably made enough room to accommodate a full size gpu.

Yeah, between that and the ram it does seem a good start since I've got a case and liquid cooler. Historically I've been an amd guy, but I can sacrifice.

This is the computer with the poorly laid out mobo, right? A few stores close with limited zero at 184, one moderately close with 3. An i7 is tempting over my older CPU/R9 combo I'm running now.

Yeah a store by me says it has 3 too. But it's a different story when I got there. And this place had inventory done earlier this year so I know they're full of it.

Don't think for a second that hasn't crossed my mind.

Computers and TV's are generally "binned" (has back room location designation), so they shouldn't have an issue finding stock if it's in the back. I had an employee tell me "what we have on the shelf is what we have in stock, there's nothing in the back" (without even scanning my upc barcode to see if there's stock). BRB go talk to another employee, they scan barcode, and they say otherwise. Ended up getting one for $399.

Assuming the store actually has them, what's the best way to get them to adjust later on? Return/rebuy? Does it have to be at the same store?

 

I went back with just the receipt and they processed it as a return/rebuy for me since I was past the 7 day price adjustment limit. YMMV though, I think I got really lucky there. And yes, it does have to be the same store.

Did a deep dive through the thread, what was the fancy PC we saw before? Not the tiny one, but full sized?

Hmm, Brickseek showing the 570-p033w dropped to $184 at all stores in my area, but they only have one.  Gotta get some groceries at my WM so I guess ill try and break my 0-20 streak on low stock computer items (really not expecting anything)

The Omen is a mid-tower case, but it has a micro ATX mobo (an inch longer on each side than the p033w mobo). It comes with a good discrete GPU and 500w PSU already, whereas the p033w has integrated graphics and a 185w PSU. Should be room in the case for a regular ATX board if you ever want to upgrade that in the future.

My store still has maybe ten copies at full price. I have been waiting ages for all these damn Wii U and 3DS games to drop. They are whittling down even at full price.

So I bought V for Vendetta for $5 at the walmart I work at two days ago. Yesterday I hear on the walkies what sounded like they were removing the $5 movies for some reason. Strange.

Have you ever heard of other stores not having mc40's or Gemini's? I talked to somebody at a store in my area today, asking them to look up a upc, but they said their store doesn't have ANY scanners. I have a hard time believing that, since you need them to make shelf labels, photo needs them to make upc labels for checkout, fabrics needs them to make upc labels for checkout, and electronics need them to bin items. I just have an extremely hard time believing nobody has them (unless it's just limited to management).

That sounds highly suspect. Almost everybody has a scanner in my store. I'm AP, so my entire department NEEDS to have one for returns/exchanges or for just helping random customers figure out prices. So yeah, I'd say they were bullshitting you, but for what purpose I have no idea. I would have spoken to a CSM about that just to be sure.

There's still hope out there for limited stock - zero apparently. Two local-ish stores with that pc updated from limited to no stock yesterday. Looks like I'm making the hour drive to hunt the 3 in stock.

Found the $184 one in stock but it doesn’t have much to offer for parts for my existing rig. It’s not a K unlocked cpu so upgrading my i5 to its i7 wouldn’t be all that worth $200 after tax. It has no GPU to sell. I don’t have room for 16GB of ram to make 32 especially cause it’s probably four 4’s inside. And I have plenty of spinning hard drive space externally.

The Omen for $299 is a great deal but much much harder to find even discounted let alone in stock. And I’m traveling across country by car, checking every state I stop in.

Is the omen really even discounted anywhere? I’ve checked several states by brickseek and only see msrp. I’m also traveling this week and considering getting the $184 if I find it as a server rig.

I’m seeing plenty of $299 and $349 on this one, but out of stock or that mysterious Limited Stock Zero.

That other Omen with the 1080 and unlocked CPU multiplier is totally unfindable though.

I bought a display of this computer yesterday (never turned on). Manager took an extra 10% off for me which was even better. It has 2 8gb sticks and is a steal at $184 if you can find them. Only downside is that it comes with a 180w psu.

Just picked up the $184 tower. Not sure if I’ll keep it or not. Could use it as a server. Anyone know how quiet it is?

Thank you. Found one store out of about 25 that shows that price and lists limited stock. The $184 model I grabbed earlier today showed the same and now lists as out of stock. Wondering if it’s truly worth it to try to grab the Omen for $299, particularly because the only store that may have it is a two hour drive each way.

I wouldn’t say that it’s totally out of the realm of possibility, though. I know in our store when they switched to the newer handhelds, there was hardly ever an extra for electronics, and even if they could find one, no one had their login authorized to use the sales floor application for some time. One guy back there who I helped train told me he felt bad because he basically had to lie to people all the time and say they didn’t have stuff because he literally had no way to check and management was no help when needed.

Spoke with the store who showed as having one of the Omen towers at $299. The manager stated it's a demo/display model that is technically new though cannot be sold. That was the only store listed out of about 25 who had it in stock and at that price. Every other store that shows stock is at MSRP of $1259.

Treating this as a Walmart whatever thread... Their site had Dragon Age: Inquisition both new and used for $12.88, I ordered new, and received a shrink wrapped copy with a loose disc inside. Good thing I looked it over when I picked it up in store.
