I too saw the Xbox 4gb on sale from the Warehouse and yes it's pretty easy to slot in a bigger hard drive and you can normally pick up a 320gig on special (normally includes a code for a game) for about $99 so you'd have a 320gig elite for under $250 which is a pretty sweet deal considering they'll be still making games for it for at least another year or two.

Why spend $99 on a HDD? You can either make your own, buy a case for $2 of Ebay and use a laptop SATA drive (plenty of how tos on the internet) or buy a pre made 320GB HDD for $56 free shipping off Ebay.

Then sign up for gold for a year and get two free games a month... Scored saints row 4/street fighter and others so far :-)

Just ordered a drive for my 360 from mighty ape. $89 and I have my prime ape still so no freight. Not sure if that is a bargain but a lot cheaper than other places.

Coming July 4th: In a nod to our American heritage, we’re celebrating at Carl’s Jr. this Independence Day. Just head into store this Friday, say the code word ‘INDEPENDENCE’ when you buy a Carl’s Jr. burger and get another BURGER FREE!

joker97: Apple care? For real? Wow


Yeah, I myself was wondering how they could offer a full year of AppleCare since AppleCare starts on the sale date as recorded by Apple.  They must've struck some deal with Apple or this deal is in the too good to be true pile.  Just can't be sure which.

 I brought electric tooth brush heads,  (cody brand as replacement for braun) and they break after a few uses (stop spinning), so I am wary on some of the quality of their imported stuff at least. It can be false economy buying non branded things. Their branded clothing though can be reasonable, but often difficult to work out the right size.

the words Apple and Care can now not be found adjacent. it was probably a word play Apple and Care is not AppleCare

i don't believe them for one second

They've completely dropped the word 'care' now.  But still claim 12 month Apple warranty.  Still doesn't tally, unless I'm mistaken Apple warranties start from the purchase date on record at Apple (i.e. when a serial was marked as purchased on Apple's system by the Authorized reseller), it's possible that 1-Day purchased theses direct from Apple and no purchase date is entered, and the 1-Day receipt will be accepted as the original purchase receipt but I'm going to opt for caveat emptor (buyer beware) and avoid at all costs even though 1-day is technically backed by The Warehouse these days $600 is a bit of money if something goes wrong and problems arise.

Edit:  Also the stock pile keeps rising every time I look.
