Closed a couple of years ago, CompUSA that is.
I still have a Best Buy not too far from me, but I'm not sure they would
be agreeable beyond a quick boot, which would be okay if everything
works, but not ideal if you need to debug the thing. The local library
might be a more comfortable place, but if I told them what I plan to do,
they might get nervous and call the cops or something.
