Bought this refurb’ed emachines H3070 online through BestBuy.ca (the online store for Best Buy Canada). Got the machine on December 30. Relatively painless order process. Had been waiting for some “Boxing Day” sales (on December 26, the equivalent of Black Friday in Canada). Got the machine for 399$. With taxes (15% in Quebec) and express shipping (around 11$): 473$. Not bad. Got a 15″ CRT monitor at a pawn shop for 22$. So a true sub-500$ system. In Canadian dollars.
