The Used Computer Store

Late Wednesday afternoon, I hit a point where I just couldn't deal with the lab anymore, probably because the next thing on my agenda was another job application. So instead I walked down to Shattuck and visited the Used Computer Store. Just as I walked in the door, two employees were working their way through inventorying a box of computer mice. I pointed and said, "I'll take that one" to the white Microsoft mouse that one of the employees was holding. Thirteen dollars later and I have the same reliable USB mouse that I used all through grad school, sold with zero packaging and instant shipping.

There are a couple of other places in the vicinity that also appear to deal in used computers and parts. And I haven't visited Al Lasher's Electronics yet, either.

Years ago back when I had a cranky Dell laptop, I had an extremely good experience with Tech Collective (https://www.yelp.com/biz/techcollective-san-francisco-2) in SF, enough that the trip into the city to drop off and fetch the laptop was completely worth it. I'm delighted to see they are still around, and would recommend.
