First time I recall seeing this: Microcenter with an open box demo iPad, no warranty, no return, no exchange.
Interesting. Never thought I'd see Microcenter go there. The only times I've bothered with Apple products at Microcenter was to pick up two previous gen certified Apple refurbished Macbooks (the final 2011 17" Pro and the 2015 15" Pro, i.e. the last one with normal ports) when they were out of stock everywhere across the country.

Sellers on craigslist have shown no restraint in the prices they've been asking for higher-end video cards and such, despite no warranty/return policies. Maybe Microcenter decided there's not much downside to following suit?

Leaving in a bit to the studio :)

Found a few more no warranty, no return, no refund open boxes at Microcenter. Looks like an emerging pattern.

I guess we are in a period of oversupply of desktop power supplies as there have been several recent promotions among the more highly-regarded brands. Amazon right now is selling this EVGA one for $50:
EVGA SuperNOVA 120-GP-0650-X1, 650 G+, 80 Plus Gold 650W, Fully Modular, FDB Fan, with10 Year Warranty
