    Just had a bait and switch pulled on me from niceelectronics.com, they
    were listed as having the lowest price on a laptop, shown as in stock
    on their website, then got the call from the sales guy: ''oops, that
    model is not in stock, would be a 5 week wait, but, oh, looky here,
    there's one just like it except with another gig of ram for oh, lets
    see, just $500 more, since, you know, how expensive ram is and all, and
    we'll give you this neato $300 warranty for ... let me check with my
    manager ... hey, ffweeee!!, So, whaddya say, sucker?''

    www.resellerratings.com : great website, should have checked it first,
    as niceelectronics had quite a few bait and switch stories posted.
    Seems like they are one of the more sleazy online sellers, even
    changing their name every year or so when their negative reviews pile
    up too high, and based in Brooklyn, NY too, hmmm, no wonder ...
