17:30 Agent> Hey Ted Madison, how are you doing?
17:30 Ted Madison> Hi, Agent
17:31 Ted Madison> pretty good
17:31 Agent> Great! How can I help you today?
17:31 Ted Madison> you must not be a 'secret' agent...
17:31 Ted Madison> i have a few questions about your Desktops
17:31 Agent> No actually my name is <snip>, and I will be your advisor
17:31 Agent> Sure
17:32 Ted Madison> ok <snip>
17:32 Agent> Was there a certain desktop you are looking at because At
Gateway we customize a solution to best fit your needs, not ours- may
I ask you some questions so we can hammer out the best system for you?
17:33 Ted Madison> what kind of motherboards do your Sb 310s use?
17:33 Agent> Intel
17:33 Ted Madison> are they actually made by intel?
17:33 Agent> Yes they are
17:33 Ted Madison> do they have agp sots/
17:34 Ted Madison> Slots, I meant
17:34 Ted Madison> mistyped
17:34 Agent> Not on the 310 they dont
17:35 Ted Madison> the 510s and 710s appear to be only for home ?home
office markets
17:35 Ted Madison> is this so?
17:36 Agent> They are for both home and home office
17:36 Ted Madison> i meant to type the / instead of the ?
17:36 Ted Madison> i am not used to this Keyboard
17:36 Agent> Is there a number I can call you on to discuss all of
this, usually it is a bit easier that way?
17:36 Ted Madison> well, no
17:37 Ted Madison> I don't have a land phone line
17:37 Agent> I can call your cell if you like
17:37 Ted Madison> we bought VoIP, and are sorting it out now
17:37 Ted Madison> Not before 8 pm you can't
17:37 Agent> I see
17:37 Ted Madison> I have to pay for minutes til then
17:38 Ted Madison> The E-2100 series-does it have an AGP slot/
17:38 Ted Madison> ?
17:39 Agent> No just PCI
17:39 Ted Madison> oh
17:39 Ted Madison> i was looking at a gateway because they have a good
warranty,
17:40 Ted Madison> but i can build one a lot cheaper
17:40 Agent> We have the best in the industry
17:40 Agent> was there a certain system you were looking at?
17:40 Ted Madison> i was wanting a four or five hundred dollar system
17:41 Agent> Well we would be looking at our 310 series in that range
17:41 Ted Madison> the problem is the integrated graphics
17:41 Ted Madison> you can't upgrade
17:42 Ted Madison> we were looking at the low end Servers as well
17:42 Agent> you can put a PCI card in it
17:42 Ted Madison> they seem a great value, but again, no agp slots
17:42 Agent> We do sell PCI Video cards
17:43 Ted Madison> The delta in price between good AGP and PCI cards
will buy a motherboard
17:43 Ted Madison> no offence, but I'd rather have an Asus mbd over an
OEM Intel

<< "Offence"? Is this guy a Limey?-Ed.>>

17:43 Agent> Well are you flexible at all on your budget
17:44 Ted Madison> well, we can build the pc we need for under $500
17:44 Ted Madison> one big problem is the bill tax, I think
17:44 Agent> What state are you in?
17:44 Ted Madison> thats $80 for nothing
17:45 Ted Madison> 316 is kansas
17:45 Ted Madison> The Bill Tax goes to Seattle.
17:45 Agent> what is your zip code?
17:45 Ted Madison> 67***
17:45 Agent> what is the shipping zip?
17:45 Ted Madison> you can use that one or 67***
17:46 Agent> what state is that, KS?
17:46 Ted Madison> indeed
17:47 Agent> Are you sure that is the correct zip, it is not working
for me?
17:48 Ted Madison> try 67***
17:48 Ted Madison> I can have it sent to the <airplane plant run by
shithead with same name as early porn director> plant
17:48 Ted Madison> my wife works there
17:49 Agent> We dont charge sales tax in KS anymore
17:49 Ted Madison> you charge the bill tax everywhere
17:50 Ted Madison> that's why we were looking at the servers
17:50 Ted Madison> no agp slot though
17:50 Agent> no we charge tax to where it is shipped to, Not to the
billing
17:50 Ted Madison> can Iget a desktop without the OS and Works?
17:51 Agent> No
17:51 Ted Madison> there you go
17:51 Agent> That comes standard on every system
17:52 Agent> For the range you are looking we have nothing with an
agp, but did you want to get the 310 on order?
17:52 Ted Madison> sorry
17:52 Ted Madison> http://www.windowsrefund.net/
17:52 Agent> Let me give you my number in case you need anything else.
800-846-20** Ext. *****
17:53 Ted Madison> what I meant is, you have $80 of overhead, because
I have to get the OS license
17:53 Ted Madison> if I build one, that's $80 off the top, or so
17:53 Ted Madison> the bill tax, you see
17:54 Agent> I wish i could help you with that, but that comes
standard
17:54 Ted Madison> if they had an agp slot on the Servers it would
probably work
17:55 Agent> Well is there anything I can help you with other than the
OS?
17:55 Ted Madison> it is kind of silly to have a celeron on the 9210,
though
17:55 Ted Madison> the 710 might work but I think the price is going
to be outside our range
17:56 Agent> Do you have anymore questions for me?
17:56 Ted Madison> is it really so expensive to have an agp slot on a
mbd?
17:56 Agent> It must be, I dont price motherboards very often
17:57 Ted Madison> Pricewatch!
17:57 Ted Madison> yeah,
17:57 Ted Madison> Dell has basically the same thing-it's either no
agp slot or too high
17:57 Agent> Do you have anymore questions for me?
