Like someone else noted, you do need some form of identification when purchasing prepaid cell phones.
That could have been the only reason for ID. Nothing to do with the PC, just the fact that it was part of the same purchase that required an ID. Like if he bought a computer, and a fifth of vodka (I wanna shop at that store), he'd need ID to complete the purchase, but it wouldn't be the cause of the PC, but the vodka.
He could have had rebates, or warranty information where ID, or the like was requested, but not required.
Other than the prepaid cell phone, theres no requirement for
showing ID when purchasing computers, regardless of the price.
Are we so indocrinated that we have forgotten the days when we could pay only cash w/o fear of suspicion. You know it wasn't that looongggg ago when we paid for everything in cash, why now? Have we been so brainwashed in to this credit system that we cannot pay in cash for anything anymore except our gas w/o being penalized w/paying xtra for the credit we used?
This is so screwed up that u that are suspiscious use the very credit system u hate to protect what u fear?
This is so Sad can you not see this???????????
Unless its a store policy.

I'm not sure what state you're in, but here in Colorado I sold pre-paid cell phones for 3 years and never once was ID required, regardless of the payment method. The only restriction when buying pre-paid phones is that no more than 2 a day can be purchased by one person.

This happened to me at Fry's when I tried to purchase a 4G memory stick for my camcorder with cash. I declined to show my ID, left the store and bought it at Wal*mart w/o incident.
I couldn't understand why they wanted ID for that purchase. I figured that they wanted my personal information so they could sell it to telemarketers and mailer lists.
