I've despised BestBuy my entire life; I only go there to walk around and drool. I never buy anything, until now. They KNEW the 1M would attract huge numbers of forum goers like us, so they raised the price to screw us then dropped the price after 90% of the pre orders were in so when it hits the shelve they are competitive once more with walmart, new egg, amazon etc.

Screw BestBuy.

But I say all this with a tiny grin, 'cause Imma fkn THRASH that 1M on my virtual race track. With all that low end torque, keeping traction through the corners will be difficult.........and I cannot WAIT to lose traction and drift that bad boy!!
Could you guys elaborate on what happened? I can't even find the LCE on anymore...
