Hi Cody,

I don't think chapter 11 is anywhere in the cards. Best Buy is a well managed company and will continue to do well sales wise. In an extended economic downturn profits would be hurt due to their debt level and low margin business, but I don't see that happening long term.

Sorry about your laptop problem. Sounds like HP laptops aren't very reliable. I've had two Compaqs that I won't too happy with performance wise. One was returned for a refund, the current one is rittled with bad hard drive sectors. I wouldn't let Best Buy touch anything of mine in need of repair, unless they're shipping it back to the manufacturer which I'm sure wouldn't happen if it is out of the manufacturer's warranty period.

Why blame Best Buy for your own mistake? It's the laptop that's lousy. Maybe your just pissed off because they sold you a crappy laptop and a 3 year service contract that's not worth the paper it's written on....
