    - It was an analogy to describe the superficial treatment of symptoms. It wasn't intended to equate the horrors Ebola causes with the inconvenience of failing graphics cards.

    I understand what an analogy is. It's the inclination to pick the treatment of one of the worst diseases in our recent history to draw a comparison that is nothing short of intellectual sloppiness and in poor taste. They should suit the reference to the issue.

    Would you have bought it - if you'd known at the outset it had a design fault?? I doubt it....

    but.....lets say you did ......what if you then discover it has a widely acknowledged DESIGN fault....made by the manufacturer or one of their partners....would you just say "oh well"...."thats the risk you take when you buy a computer"?...if so then hats off Sir - you are clearly a Zen master.

    I'm not stupid enough to buy something that has a known fault, but this issue was not known as a design fault for a number of years.

    If it was a fault that later came out and the manufacturer kept the computer usable for its warranty period then yes I would accept it as part and parcel of buying tech.

    Everybody who buys a new computer with brand new tech in it is a beta tester for that hardware. I know this, it's obvious that the testing of these components can never be thorough enough without making people wait years for new tech.

    As such I have 2 choices take the risk or only buy old tech that's tried and tested, I don't want old tech I take the risk, and I am willing to accept it when that risk doesn't pay off.

    This shows that you don't now what you are talking about. There were a number of the revisions to the non-Slim Xbox 360 to make it less susceptible to RRoD.

    Xenon, Falcon, Opus, Jasper, Jasper/Kronos

    That's just it: he doesn't have one, so he don't have to deal with problems.

    It's the "not my problem" attitude.

    It's not so much a "not my problem" attitude. Because of a banner carrier that behaves as you do, it's more of a "serves you right" attitude.

    You catch more flies with honey than vinegar, tubesy.

    How about I sell it to you (market value) so you can deal with it?

    No thanks, I don't fit the buying retirement of being a "sucker".
