Cpu Mark Up?

Recommended Posts

CPU markup isn't half as bad as cables. The markup of cables could be the biggest percentage markup I know of lol.

 

Geek Squad 6' USB Cable. $34.99.

 

Actual cost for the store to buy (including the cost of shipping, storing, etc). $0.89.

 

Being unlucky enough to have to go and buy a cable with that much mark up. Priceless.

Ive never seen an AMD ad except for their logo on the bottom of some HP commercials :P

 

Belkin USB cable at staples: $16

Across the parking lot at Brooks drug store: $7

 

I agree, cables are by far the most marked up.

even that is off by what intel / amd charges LARGE suppliers like HP / Dell (newegg pays more).

 

 

trust me to actually produce a CPU is in the single digits. packaging, shipping and storage are the biggest killers
