Holiday Shopping Guide: Computers

I’m almost ashamed to say that even though I’m in the computer field, I don’t know much of the offerings here in town. Part of that is intangible—I wouldn’t put services and repairs only here in the shopping guide; part of that is, well, I just don’t need to hit those stores much, I suppose. I’ll likely be updating this particular post as I go.

Connecting Point

I like Connecting Point; they carry a variety of things, from equipment all the way to full systems, software, books, and a lot of Apple stuff—iPods especially. The times I’ve had to pick something up in a pinch (power supply, networking router), I’ve gotten a good deal and had no problems.

And right now through Christmas, their iPods are $20 off—the cheapest in town!

PHD Computers

A good wholesale computer dealer that Jake has recommended to me more than once. They have a warehouse on 2nd Street and a storefront in the Forum Center on the east side; I suspect they’d rather have walk-ins at the storefront.

DSI Computers

Another Jake recommendation. He says,

They’ve been here forever and while they might be more expensive than some, they’ve a nice bunch of guys and they’ll take care of you.

I haven’t been there for years, but they are one of the area’s mainstays and were always fair.

  1. Agree on both counts, but would add DSI to the list. They’ve been here forever and while they might be more expensive than some, they’ve a nice bunch of guys and they’ll take care of you.

  2. Cool, I’ll add DSI… I hadn’t been there in years and I didn’t know how they were doing these days. Also, what about The Disk Space? I remember when they used to be on Wall, they were pretty good for computer software… I don’t even know if they’re doing the same thing in their other location, or what.
