If, for some reason, i bought a P4 1.7, and im not saying i did make this mistake, but if it was me who did this, do you think there is any way that i can get my money back from the store with no legitimate reason other than that it's Intel

Depends on the store/person you're dealing with. They might give this person pity and let them exchange it for something else, or they may just give you the, "I'm sorry" look.

Just make up some bullshit excuse as to why you can't use it.

If i was a store clerk person, i wouldn't believe an Intel chip "burnt out" though. :smile: . Hmm....just blame microsoft, it always works
"So what happened to your computer?"
"Well....it was working fine and then i decided to install the ME upgrade from Win98SE. Suddenly sparks started flying everywhere!"
"Well, that can happen, we get that a lot. I just hate M$.... Get Linux next time, ya, it's going to be big. Hey, do you like Babylon 5?...."

Quite Easy actually, if anything, tell them that you are a MAC user, and you are very disappointed in the piss-poor performance and you would like your money back.

Tell your friend he's an idiot and stop talking to him :) 

I don't think there's really any way you could take it back, but it greatly depends on the store.

Lie!

Several ways to return it.

1) claim that they sent you wrong part, you wanted x they shipped you y

2) Claim the sales person said that would fit your board but it has too many pins and doesnt seem to fit. play stupid.

3) Sell it to FUGGER. He'll pay twice the retail price and think he's getting a good deal.
