They tell him to refuse the shipment and he won't have to pay. Well it would have been nice if he could have done that but he wasn't and it’s not his responsibility to pay $40 dollars for ibuypowers mistake. They messed up and shipped an item that should not have been shipped. Yeah $40 dollars isn't much but after you drop $1500 or more on a laptop it adds up especially if you had to really work and save to get that laptop. So I think that he has a valid complaint. It would definately piss me off however I think the biggest lesson here is to know what you want before you order it. If your walking into a retail store you can afford to but and try or to get something that you aren't sure of but when you are dealing with online stores most of them are somewhat shady and definitely fight you on returns.

than wait until the next month when you get your 1500 refunded
than have your mum pay off the original budget you told her ur laptop would be (1500)
this of course will work unless she used AMEX (got to pay in full every month)
