I Live in tokyo and on occasions drop into Akehabara
to have a snoop around. Once you get of the main
streets it becomes like a labarynth of used computer
shops. quite fun looking around. Unfortunatly the
prices are quite steep unless you happen to get lucky.
I saw a Mac portable for $1000 in one shop.
The japanese are fanatical about there Apple
products...but arn't we all.
