There are many "suckers" born every minute attested to by the number of people that purchase Gateway computers. Gateway sells their "junk" parts to vendors as "overstock" instead of returning them to the mfgr for replacement.
Parts returned by their field service people are sold in the same fashion. Agreed, they are not selling them directly but they are still sending them out to be sold as "overstock" when they know that is a lie. Whether they sell the failed parts to deceptive vendors, they are as guilty as the shady vendors they sell to.
Their employees are so stupid as to believe the company is above responsibility for this type of practice. Most of the employees are immigrants that will work for low wages and are barely able to understand English. BOYCOTT GATEWAY... BUY HP AND BE SURE OF LEGITIMACY!!!!
