Who got what on black friday, and who got bumrushed?

This was my first black friday adventure... It's funny how a group of friends can have a night long discussion to decide who's going to get what for who, and at where... and then comes show time, lol everyone forgets.

So i got to Office Max at 3am, no one was in line so me and my friend chilled in the car. We got out at 4:30am and ended up being 5th/6th in line. Dont ask me why, no one was at this Office Max for some reason... got what i wanted here..

Averatec 2370 (taxed) for ~$550... there was an additional 10% off
Sansa c140 1g mp3 player (taxed) for ~$40... there was an additional 10% off

Then i went to Office Depot. it was 6am, and they just opened. Kind of ditched my friend for a moment, cut a couple people to speak with the store manager ...

IBM Lenovo 3000 N100 core 2 duo (taxed) for $930... with $50 instant savings, and $250 mail in rebate.... bringing it down to $599

Then i went to Best Buy. It must have been like 7am by then. DVDs were dirt cheap, $3-5 bucks. Then i was lining up to pay, i saw this best buy employee pulling a cart out, it had four MAG 17inch lcd for $80... It was already sold out by the time i got there. I thought he was holding it for someone, but i was like "fuck it, i'm bumrushing that shit." I followed the employee and then roughly 8 or more other people started following me. I ran up and asked
"Are you holding these for someone?"
Best Buy employee: "No, you want one? Fedex just dropped these off, grab one"

I grabbed one and ran off, back to my friend in line. lol it was funny cause a couple people were like "awwww... " and then three of them were "run back to the line!"

My friend also helped me order two 1gb flash drives for ~10bucks from staples.com

Averatec ($550) + Sansa ($40) + Lenovo ($930) + MAG ($80) + DVDs ($10) + Flash Drives ($20) = ~$1600

I'm selling the Lenovo though, i want the portability of the Averatec. Even though the Lenovo is a core 2 duo... and it's an IBM

I was bumrushed for a couple of hard drives, couple of netgear super G router, and a laptop cooler during the 9p-12a COMPUSA midnight sale

I bought a clownfish today. He wasn't on sale, though.

I set up a little nano-cube aquarium on my night stand :-)

Do you have any idea how many clownfish died as a result of the movie Finding Nemo? Almost every kid wanted a clownfish after seeing the movie. Fish stores everywhere stocked them up like crazy, and jacked up the prices for clownfish for about a year after the movie was released. Parents would buy a clownfish for $30 not knowing the first thing about the fish's needs, some not even knowing it's a saltwater fish , and they would put them in goldfish bowls only to find "Nemo" belly-up later on. Disney kills animals.
