Field Trip

Lunchtime I schlepped to Stevens Creek Blvd to see what the prices were at Central Computer. This is a hokey little place in a huge building with signage that makes the passer-by think the whole 5-story half-square-block cement palace is a computer store. The computer store only takes up the ground floor, and I suspect not all of that. Used to be items were in no particular order, but that's been improved. Everything is still over-priced. Nothing I saw was below MSRP, the motherboard I was looking for was priced higher than anywhere else I've checked. The store is crowded and looks more like the central market in an Asian city than it does a computer store. I wonder how they stay in business. I guess they must have good income from their wholesale customers.
