This was the advertisement for the week of 1/20/08-1/26/08. Sounds like a good deal. Called Staples to order. No stock. not available. I was told to go to the 250 Shenstone Ln, Garner, NC 27529. This store shows 2 in stock. Asked sale rep to confirm if this was a 17". She replied yes absolutely. I explain to her that this was a long drive and did not want to make the trip for nothing. She re-confirmed.
Got to the store, 15.4". Talked to the store manager Curtis and showed him the ads. Waited for a while, he came back to me just to let me know that it was a 15.4" notebook not 17".
I explained to him about the phone conversation I had with the sales rep. His response nothing I can do for you.
Long story short. Staples is a liar. I would never shop at this store anywhere. I would encourage others not to shop there.
