Wow, now they really do have everything. lol
Seriously though, it's cool that you can now get a system that you would actually want instead of some left over bargain bin tower.
Wow that is amazing for iBuyPower the hope of course is that Walmart shoppers will be willing to spend a little more for a much better system.
Is it me or is that smiley face just a little bit more sinister than usual?
"I have the power!!"
So does this mean the peopleofwalmart.com people are going to start gaming?
Now you're just mashing it!
Why not just order directly from iBuyPower??? Im sure they will do alot better job then walmart... That is if they assemble them there and not just order it from iBuyPower and sell it.
It's a nice step forward for customizable gaming PC's with off-the-shelf components but is there really a difference if you do it from Walmart.com when you could do it from iBuyPower.com?
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Looks like a savvy move for both some walmart customers make feel a bit more comfy having walmart behind it .cause they may be unfamiliar with the name brand are likely to have it shipped to store. or maybe just want to ask one the salesclerks about some config options ? or use the walmart plastic.
"Don't Panic ! 'cause HH got's your back!"
I went through the process and the pricing was around the same $1115 for ibuypower and $1048 for walmart. Taking into account ship to store like rrplay mentioned and wlamart would seem like the better deal for the average consumer.
Ibuypower of course offering more customization options would be best so it would more better fit one's needs. Some consumers don't know the lingo and lack the patience to learn the various options available to them online. So good for your average consumer but techies like us know better.
Haha yes it is a bit more sinister than normal :)
My problem with this is that the average consumer may buy a computer unkowning of what they are buying, and just because a computer is made by a certain brand or is a high price doesnt mean its good. Not saying ibuypower isnt a good company, but i think some people should ask some one who maybe more familiar with computers when buying one.
I agree completely fat78 which is why at my job I don't like to pressure customers into purchases. I would rather they make their own decisions and I am just available to answer any questions even if it leads to a competitor getting the sale.
Ahhh...takes me back to that movie "Idiocracy" where you can even go to law school at Costco :P
does this take out the shipping and allow for in store pickup?
^yes. Wally world opens up a new path to buyers. Many people will see this online at WalMart.com and buy them too.
Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
i think that is pretty great. i never expected anything like it from walmart but it allows them to expand their horizons a little bit and reach for a more power hungry pc demographic.
Sounds like a great way for iBuyPower to get more exposure. I just hope Walmart doesn't pressure them to somehow cut corners to save money.
true, but the brand name of walmart will go along way with selling to people unsure about ibuypower.com. I know i would trust walmart to take the computer back if i had major problems with it, ibuypower....not so much.
Wow, I can't believe I missed this one yesterday. Or even know about it before. I work for Wal-Mart....gonna have to see if I get my employee discount, I'll let ya know.
*edit* Sweet! Just did a test on Walmart.com. Did the very basic options for $578. And I can use my discount to bring it down to $520.20. This is good/bad. Good b/c I just might finally be able to justify spending the money to upgrade my current rig. Bad b/c now that I know, I really want to. :-P
i could go for a latte

personally i think walmart is getting out of control. If you can find products that low good job. some people dont care about the product...expensive product is to complicating for an average person. so they go with a cheap and simple. and this is a step forward for walmart consumers, they need a way to upgrade their Windows 98. seriously I have seen that computer still around.
lol yeah sportin' a whole new 'tude
i guess if you were going to build one from ibuypower thats one way to do it (wally world got about every thing else)
i can think of allot of things i wished they carried in store for computers
soon you will be able to buy a dodge charger there to
i would have to say i would buy a maingear sys. if it was just ordered through walmart.com and MG built it and shipped it but why give the extra $ to wally unless it was cheaper
