The prices at Intrex are low enough that they compete with online and
mail order shops. It's hard to see how they could include product
testing for Linux without boosting their prices. Of the two choices,
I'd rather keep the prices low and do the research myself.
When you compare Intrex to the other local retail options: Best Buy,
Circuit City, etc., they start looking awfully good. They don't try to
rob you for the price of a DVI cable or other essential add-on. I find
that their employees give much better answers too.
