I'm interested in generic recommendations for generic online comp. hardware stores.
My new tivo wanted a hard drive and I realised I didn't know where to start. A friend said comptermarket.com.au, so I tried them and they seem ok. Are there any other good places to check?

The best (cheapest) way to get your hands on IBM hardware is to make
friends with an IBM employee and get them to buy it for you through
their Employee Purchasing Program.

Maybe you could just stalk someone coming out of 8 Brisbane Ave and
offer them beer in exchange for their employee ID :)
