Computer parts: Canadian online retailers?

Postby Shepherd on Fri Mar 15, 2002 9:34 am

With the help of <a href="http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/298/sledgetherapy.html">Mr. Sledge Therapy</a>, I'm gonna be building a new computer soon for the patented Mysterious Radio Project.
Any recommendations for reliable, inexpensive on-line Canadian computer parts sellers? Living in Sherbrooke, Quebec I don't have access to really good storefront retailers...

Matt... Matt... Matt...
What kind of company do i work for???
A Computer Vendor! & we have a Canadian Branch at http://www.insight.ca & they have all your parts and pieces... I even know a Canadian rep you can call... once you've got the parts picked out, tell me and I'll get you in touch with them...
And for all of our other Forum users...
I work for http://www.insight.com ... so if you need computer crap at good prices... e-mail me.
(I feel degraded...)

Hey, does anyone out there know of a half decent comic that features a penguin in it? It would also be nice if he liked to eat cookies, cause Lord knows, I love cookies.

Oh, right. How silly of me.


sorry guys, just had to make light of what looked like a blatant ad for <a href="http://www.insight.com">Insight.com</a>

ps: where's the journal Matt? your lack of updates has inspired me to ignore my earlier inspiration that came from your entertaining blogspot.

Actually, that was a tribute to the old call/response format of French-Canadian folk songs.

"QUI avait les choses pour ordinateurs?"
"INSIGHT a les choses pour ordinateurs!"
"Tara-lara-ay de boom de Celine!"
"Tara-lara-ay de boom de Roch Voisine!"

Um.

Anyway...I knew James worked for Insight, but to the best of my knowledge I thought they only sold parts and systems to U.S. clients and had no real knowledge of a Canadian branch.

But now I feel foolish, so everything's okay.

Tara-lara-ay de boom poutine.

Oh, and something called "Toad and Penguin"...
I think it's like a Disney strip or something...

After checking those links, I've gotta say that Dave wins. Well, BBreathed is a hard act to beat, but the other ones...aren't.

I read the entire Willie the KOOL Penguin site, almost. Chilling (pardon the pun) shit, folks. Check 'er out.

Well, I met with Sledge tonight and we costed out a system. Then we went to Costco, and discovered that Daewoo is selling a damn good system complete with 17" monitor, graphics cards, etc. for $999. Even after buying an extra 256 of memory and an eventual upgrading of the processor to an Athlon (it's a Duron 1.1G right now), it`s still about as cheap as just putting the thing together ourselves.

Hooray for Korea! I compute on the back of sweatshop labour!
