Are there any shops selling used computer equipment in Halifax or
Dartmouth, ideally near a bus route?
I'm traveling to Dartmouth (from Boston) to help my mom with her move in
a few weeks and might have some free time to shop for a laptop harddrive
I was thinking of getting for backups. I ask about used because I've
given myself a rule that I'm not allowed to buy new electronics,
especially not computer equipment. Looking online, I noticed a place
named Techmania in Cole Harbour that sounds promising and mentions
having refurbished equipment, but it's not clear from their website how
likely I'd be to walk in and find a used harddrive for sale with the
specs I want: (SATA, 350-750 GiB, 5400 rpm (quieter)). Yes, probably I
should email them.
Has there ever been any buzz around Halifax about something like
Portland's or Vancouver's Freegeek starting up? I've been away for a
long time and don't know the computer shop scene there at all now,
unless driving past box stores counts.
