Just read his FAQ best jokes ever (http://www.michaelscomputers.com/faqs.htm) Small Quote more inside (spit)
........I only choose Michael's Computers over any other company because it’s far better to know the maker and someone you can trust and is a Christian.”


Or check out his prices for so called uber systems with 256Megs of ram :eek: (http://www.michaelscomputers.com/MX8IntelSystems.htm)

Not to mention several errors in his homepage links , what a *cough* scam *cough* artist :screwy: atleast he is not claiming gazillion Onions anymore. :lol2:

Also discussed at Rage3d (http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?threadid=33759596)

He still claims unreasonably low noise levels.

and hes also claiming to have service pack 2 on his xp systems...how can he do that when its only in beta stages? So hes pretty much selling computers that have an already somewhat buggy operating system with a beta patch that just throws a few more bugs into the mix?

Well this site has been up for months now (like 7 + months and even 2 and half months after this article published), He seems to have been scamming people a long time now,

Or he sells PCs to people who just dont know any better *shrug*

Yeah, he's a scammer. We had a computer store during the 90s right in the middle of the Frenchtown Square Mall where the owner was "Christian". He scammed a few of my friends as well as too many other residents in the county. He eventually had to pack up and head west out into the boonies. One of his former workers has since opened his own computer store downtown. It took a while for him to loose the stigma of being a former employee of the "Christian" guy ... but he's done good for himself mainly because the componets he sells are from reputable manufacturers like MSI, Gigabyte, Chaintech, and ECS whereas the "Christian" shyster sold goods made by DFI, Jetway, or far-flung companies nobody ever heard of ...

Every company started once somewhere, DFI mobos are very good as for Jetway, they're ok.

He's a bit dodgy. He posts fake ratings and awards from Sharky's, there are also complaints about him at the better business bureau, he has a fake business address, and he makes up specs like "Athlon FX 3400+ 800 FSB" and "Michael's TXK 500 GB Harddrive" and "7 seconds boot time" with "Windows XP 2004" no doubt. Also, he only accepts payment through paypal, which is all you really need to know.

heh, usually the successful scams are those that are believable.

and the 8 year warranty should tell people that the thing is a scam, because even the best comanies only give a 3 year warranty... some offer an upgrade to 5/10 years, but that's normally a pretty penny.

An 8-10 yr warranty on a pc is an equivalent to a life insurance policy.
