    Yes you did. In the part you snipped you wrote (as I have arrowed):

    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    None of the prices I listed where cheap.
    None came from the "grey market" as you call it
    All were for new parts <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< SEE!
    All were for Apple original parts.
    All were to licensed Apple resellers.
    This is true to some degree. It isn't true for 3+ year old computers
    today,
    and we won't know until in three years, really.
    What Apple laptop? The trackpad for the Macbook Pro 13" 2012 Retina
    costs
    $90 and you can get one here:

    You should know better than accusing nopam of: making either a mistake;
    or writing an ambiguous statement.

    That would be twisting or nitpicking his words.

    Incorrect - Tony is the one who brought up "Apple batteries", not me. Your
    trolling about "topic" or not is totally irrelevant. I didn't start to talk
    about Apple batteries, nor did I bring it up, make it a "topic" or
    anything.

    Just stop arguing about everything you can argue about. You were wrong,
    stop making a fool out of yourself.

    I am not *arguing* with you, Eric. I am plainly telling you the actual
    facts. There is no argument here, I'm not claiming that "I" am correct,
    because I have stated no opinion. I have only told you the facts that you
    continue to argue against.
    1. That post is from 28 october, as a reply to the above mentioned post. it
    comes AFTER that post.
    2. That post is not from me.

    See, not even when you actually try can you get anything right. You really
    should just stop making claims, period.

    No I didn't.
    Here is the post:

    You will note (maybe not) that the claims that concerned the PAST (which
    you quoted above) precede the link that is found later in the post.

    The word "were" is in reference to things that has occured in the past,
    Eric. It does not include things that is happening in the post I was
    currently writing, things that I had yet to write.

    At this point I had said "In this case, you are correct. Peter was the
    first" but you chop it out without giving any evidence of the fact an
    then keep on arguing. Are you sick or something?
    I now see that the 20th can't be right as I didn't start the thread
    until the 26th. My news server has had a hissy fit from a new indexing
    system and twice now it has downloaded to me some 780,000 newsgroup
    headers. My newsreaders index system has been throwing wobblies from
    both the quantity and the need to reindex everything. I won't say any
    more on this subject until I get things straightened out.
    I agree.

    Stop lying, Eric - I am *correcting* you below, not arguing with you.
    So,, knowing this, you should double-check your claims.

    But the reference to being ablle to obtain parts from Amazon was in
    the past also. If you had done more than glance at that you would
    realise that it was being sold by BulkBuys4Buildings who are not well
    known Apple agents. Their main line of business is plumbing supplies
    and trade tools. Outside of Amazon they seem to deal with
    organisaions like Mr Chip Parts. A source of new and authorised Apple
    parts they are not.

    This was a mistake. It was "nospam" who ...

    .... quoted from a URL
    This too was a mistake. The date of the article was 27 Oct.
    I made two mistakes and you missed both of them. What are things
    coming to?

    No, 28th.

    Huh? You are replying to a post of mine where I am pointing to two of your
    errors and then you say I missed those errors? What are you on about?

    You have already replied to this post once again - this was your second
    reply, this was your first:

    http://usenet.sandman.net/reader/index/read?id=112346

    Where you already admitted to your mistake - without trying to make it seem
    like I had "missed" something.

    Two different errors ...
    I told you my news group files were in a mess.

    Sandman Guest

    So you made four errors? I don't see the difference, quoted above. Mine are
    labeled 1 and 2, they concern who wrote the post and the date of the
    post.

    Below are your stated errors, which apart from containing another error (it
    was the 28th, not the 27th) are in relation to the same two errors you
    made. I just don't understand why you would reply to my post and outline
    the same errors again?
    BUt you still replied to the same post twice. And you still repeated the
    summary of the errors in the post you were replying to. Something is in a
    mess here... :)

    Look at the message header.
    And I've just received 40 'new' articles about the best way to index
    photographs - dating from the middle of August. If you don't realise
    its not really new its quite easy to respond to an article a second
    time.

    You've mentioned such health issues before, Eric. How are things going?

    For more than twenty years my skin has been periodically sprouting
    relatively harmless skin cancers (basal and squamous cell carcinomas
    (BCC and SCC)). These have had to have been removed by various
    surgical techniques. More recently my legs below the knee have been
    sprouting them like daisies in a lawn. Cryosurgery (blasting them with
    liquid nitrogen) has dealt with many but periodically one gets to the
    stage where it has to be cut out. Several of these have required skin
    grafts which initially lay me up for weeks at a time and subsequently
    limit my mobility for several more weeks. I'm due for another bout of
    leg surgery in a week. I expect that in some three months they will
    switch their attention from my right leg to my left .... :-(

    The surgery the other week was the removal of a BCC from my nose. I
    have another one to remove, probably after Christmas.

    Not only do I have the wrong kind of skin but I spent too much of my
    youth working in the sun.

    Well, I hope you get better. I had my right parotid gland removed, in
    April of 1992. It contained a tumor and I needed follow-up radiation
    treatment; the cancer hasn't returned, fortunately.

    That's good to hear. So far, mine have been much less hazardous than
    that.

    I have bough recently a Lenovo "all in one" B540.
    The back panels don't have screws and slide open to give access to HDD and memory. No screws on HDD either. I will replace the CPU at one point, mine is an i3.

    I have looked at building a system capable of running OSX, search for Hackintosh. Some configurations cost close to what Apple charge for the equivalent.

    If you want a top end laptop to match one of Apple's it will cost you the same.

    Before you do that, make sure that the replacement CPU is compatible
    with the motherboard. And tht you have the correct drivers. I don't know
    whch you may need, but I think those are items to be checked out.
