Hp Sends Customer a Boxful of Stupid – or Did They?

NotebookReview forum member chrixx ordered something from HP. He got what he asked for, but he wasn’t prepared for this:

HP-wasteful-packaging-1

chrixx claims that that’s a 10kg (22 lbs) wooden pallet. See what I’m getting at? He orders a tiny thing, something that should only weigh “barely 300g”, and he ends up with this monstrosity: “…I had to drag this pellet [sic] from my apartment lobby, into the lift, out of the lift, into my home, cut it open, remove the contents and discard all the junk packaging.”

I think chrixx shouldn’t complain about removing the contents of the box – come on man – but damn HP. Your packaging peeps must have been high or bored when they processed this, because all that chrixx ordered was…

HP-wasteful-packaging-3

… a power cord. How about it guys? You think this is real or what?
