Futureshop Informative - Company should be called slightly out of date shop.
MISSISSAUGA -- When I go to a store named 'Futureshop', I expect to find computer equipment that's bleeding edge, hardware and software that just came out.
But I don't. It's rather irksome. Not a complaint really, but this store is really the opposite of what it's name claims to be. I was there last Friday looking for a 1GB stick of RAM for my laptop, so the clerk says sure, I can get that for you right now. He comes back with 2 512mb sticks... to which I reply that I only have 1 user serviceable ram slot in my computer, and that I really need a 1 gig stick. He tries to convince me that such hardware doesn't exist. I determine that this person isn't able to understand what I need, so I leave.
This isn't the first time this has happend. I was at slightly out of date shop a few months ago to purchase a BFG 6800 GT OC video card, and I was told that it hadn't come out yet. After I showed him a flyer from a local retailer containing the exact video card, he asked me why I would need something like that. Again, I leave empty headed to a local retailer who had it in stock.
To sum up, if you need a spindle of blank cds, futureshop is the place to go. If you're in search of computer hardware, head elsewhere - this place is strictly little league.
