For sheer convenience (I seldom find buying off the web all that
convenient), I also use the "7 Star Tech Shop" at ANU. Ren is very
friendly and is always willing to hunt around for that special
part with his suppliers, if he doesn't have what I am looking for
in store. If I tell him how much I can get (eg.) a couple of sticks
of ECC RAM for from web suppliers, he will try and match the price.
