The aero has been discontinued for some time now. It has been increasingly
more and more difficult to find parts and supplies, but they are certainly
out there. If you do find them, you oftem find them at quite a bargain.

[C] Subject: Excellent service at PC Service - pass it on...
Date: Thu, 25 Jun 1998 08:53:43 -0500
From: "Brockwell, Stephen E." 

I have to pass on this info about the excellent service I received from
PC Service. ( http://www.pcservice.com )

Called them after noon on Monday this week and ordered a clutch hinge
for my Aero.  Price with shipping about $33  and was told that it would
probably be at my house by Friday.  It was delivered at 10 AM Tuesday
(less than 24 hours).  I live in Elgin OK and the part was sent from Ft
Worth TX.... about 180 miles away.  Longer distances may mean longer
delivery times.(your mileage may vary, etc)   After putting the part in
and making my Aero live again, I called PC Service at: 1-800-340-2667 to
tell them about the good job they did and to pass on the thanks to the
most senior supervisor I could get.  They seemed to be astounded that
anyone would call to talk about good service but they deserved it.  

A satisfied customer......

ed. note: Date: 2 April 1999, It seems that many people are very
satisfied with the folks at PC Service. As of now, they still have the
aero clutch in stock.

>Barnett's Cptr Whse(NY,NY) has a package deal -

I bought my aero from these bastards, and the whole business was a nightmare.
I would strongly advise no member of the list to deal with this company-they
are the most dishonest, rude bunch you will meet. It's not just me either:
comp.sys.laptops has nothing good to say about them.

Go somewhere else.
