I have never bought a computer where the vendor required me to sign a
contract before purchasing it.
Perhaps you're referring to the little stickers on the back of
software disks that say "By breaking this seal you agree to all of
these contract terms"? Well, those little stickers have no legal
standing. You can't agree to a complete contract by breaking a little
seal. Many software vendors wish that they could make you do so, but
that's not the way it works.
