that's great, do they ship electronics packaged well?
Yes, I just purchased the I5 from them it came in a very small box, the processor boxed was wrapped in large bubble wrap. There was no movement allowed within the packaging. I also purchased an dvd drive, and an a70 cpu cooler. All arrived intact and were packaged properly.
If you live next to a micro center that could also be good (don't know if you have to pay taxes though, if you do assuming a 7% sales tax you end up spending the same amount. The cpu from microcenter is in store pick up only.
Micro centers is employing a little bit of marketing (loss leader).
