Shopping for new laptop

Been doing research on brands and models for a week now and I decided to stick with Toshiba their build quality makes them superior, now the thing is what's up with PC stores in Jordan ?

Yesterday SMS The sole distributer and authorized service center of Toshiba in Jordan had one page advertisement of their laptops, prices and specs
Ok, let me make it short for you, not all of the mentioned models are available in the listed authorized resellers and the ones available are different either in price or specs, the only one to met their offer and specs had 1 year warranty instead of THREE as advertised HELL! and that one was in Carrefour in their show desks and have been touched by almost every Jordanian visited Carrefour so I'm not buying it and it was the last one.

So I decided to head to PC Zone, so it's Mecca-Mall Branch, first the security didn't let me in because I'm male only creature so I had to call a friend and borrow her :D fortunately she was in Mecca-Mall, Thanks for the hand buddy.

So it was like
Jad: Hello, I'm interested in your Toshiba Tecra offer, saw it today morning in Al-Waseet
PC Zone guy: Oh, Sorry but we don't advertise on Al-Waseet we do have our own weekly newspaper
Jad: Ohh but your name was mentioned as authorized reseller?
PC Zone guy: Yes, but we are not committed to that offer, we are only committed to what we advertise.
Jad: Ok, nevertheless, do you have any Tecras ?
PC Zone guy: Why do you want Tecra? why not Satellite or even Acer, we have good offers on Acer
Jad: I have Tecra S2 and I know about its build quality VS Satellite build quality, so do you have Tecra?
PC Zone guy: No, but maybe within a month
Jad: Ok, lemme check what you have anyway (da na na da na na na dada da )
Jad: Ok, I think I'll stick to Tecra, Thank you anyway.
PC Zone guy: If you have a model in mind we can order it for you from the states sir.
Jad: is it going to be cheaper?
PC Zone guy: No
Jad: Ohh Why would I order something from the states when we have it in Jordan and when we actually have a Sole distributer and Authorized service center in Amman?
PC Zone guy: heh, true
Jad: whispering to himself (ugh ugh ugh)
Jad: Thank you anyway, bye


So what the hell is going on? why making it such difficult task to buy a new laptop? isn't enough we are paying at least 30% more than internet/States prices?

And the funny is I'm tried to call them today but they never picked up the phone or they don't work on Saturday because maybe they don't see the need to sell laptops or provide support in weekends as Jordanians are busy during their weekends and they will not go shopping and they have plenty of free time during the week.

damn

اهم التطورات العلمية في العام ٢٠١٩

Dear Microsoft : It's over. Our relationship just hasn't been working for a while, and now, this is it. I'm leaving you for another Operating system. I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that

القضاء: لا دليل على أن مقتحمي الكونغرس خططوا لقتل مشرعين

أكد محققو وزارة العدل الأمريكية أنهم لم يجدوا حتى الآن أي دليل على أن أنصار دونالد ترامب الذين هاجموا مبنى الكونغرس الأسبوع الماضي خططوا لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم. يأتي ذلك في الوقت الذي أُوقفت فيه الشرطة، الجمعة، رجلا مسلّحا في واشنطن خلال محاولته عبور إحدى نقاط التفتيش في محيط مبنى الكونغرس حيث ستقام الأربعاء مراسم تنصيب جو بايدن. في ذات الوقت أفادت شبكة NBC الأمريكية، بأن مكتب التحقيقات الفيدرالي يحقق في إمكانية تمويل حكومات أو جماعات اقتحام مبنى الكونغرس. وقالت مصادر للشبكة: "المكتب يحقق في مدفوعات "بيتكوين" بقيمة 500 ألف دولار، يبدو أنه تم تحويلها من قبل مواطن فرنسي، لشخصيات ومجموعات رئيسية يمينية قبل اندلاع أعمال الشغب". وفي جلسة استماع في محكمة أريزونا بشأن اعتقال أحد مثيري الشغب جاكوب تشانسلي الذي يؤمن بنظرية المؤامرة ومن أتباع الحركة اليمينية المتطرفة "كيو-آنون"، تراجع المدعون الفيدراليون عن اتهامات سابقة بأن أنصار ترامب كانوا يخططون "لاحتجاز مسؤولين منتخبين وقتلهم" في هجوم السادس من كانون الثاني/ يناير في واشنطن. ع
