After reading around on this forum, it seems almost everyone has a good computer store nearby. I'm in Chrleston, SC in the US and we have crap for computer stores. There isn't a computer store within 100 miles that has an Asus EEE PC, much less an Aspire One. The best computer store around here is BestBuy, which isn't much of a computer store. There is a CompUSA about 150 miles away, but that's a long way to go to see if they have it. \n\nAnd if I wanted a ZIF cable or a 1.8"HDD or even a descent CF... forget it. I have to order everything or pay high prices for lesser products locally. EG: 4GB USB stick at USD at Office Depot. \n\nI read on here that people are walking into local computer stores and buying the AOA110 and picking up 1.8" HDD and 40pin ZIF cables. I'm very jealous! Where do you live that has such wonderful computer stores?
