Well my wife took her mother to PC World to get a PC.  First I heard of
it was when she phoned me up saying "we're in pc world and the man here

Luckily they were looking at an HP machine, so I said it was probably ok
(it seems to be, even if it's got a horrible case with DESIGNED FOR
WINDOWS XP printed on it.  The manufacturers must really have to swallow
their pride to do that :).

I just think she (and her mother) thought all computers were basically
the same, and there was this nice big computer shop down the road, so
lets just go there.
