Speaking of Tech Depot, does anyone know the relationship between Tech Depot and www.computers4sure.com? I did a PriceGrabber search the other day and the best deal was at C4S. When I clicked on their site, I noticed the little "An Office Depot Company" logo at the top. I was in OD yesterday and asked their tech guy about it and he had no idea what I was talking about. I pointed him to the site on his computer and he was rather surprised. Said he'd never heard of it before. He said he would PM a product for me to the price on the site, but I got the idea that he didn't really know if he was allowed to do that so I didn't take him up on it. Call me a softie, but I'm not interested in anyone breaking rules and getting in trouble for giving me a deal.

Anyway, what's the deal with Computers4Sure? Did Tech Depot buy the C4S site and rebrand it? The sites look the same.
