Hello all.

I'm looking for a suggestion of a really good computer store to visit in either Kingston, or Ottawa which are both about an hour away from my home. Also, a good store in Montreal would be useful, as I'm here during the week for school. I'm looking for a store with a wide selection of external enclosures and IDE hard drives and optical drives. I'm more so looking for a store with a lot of different models of external enclosures.

I'm probably going to get the drives at Canada Computer in Kingston, which seem to have very good prices, but I've been there once, and the selection of enclosures was weak. Any advice or suggestions is welcome.

Thanks

- Rick

Don't expect a lot of Apple Computer stores in Ottawa.

Compusmart has stores with both Apple and PC products...
You really have to shop around for the best prices.

this is one of those things thats best to shop for online, i've never seen a store with a "wide selection of external enclosures" --- they aren't huge retail items because most people buy them online or buy an external hard drive kit thats already assembled and can't interswap IDE drives ... I would also say that unless you find a sale the IDE drives themselves can be found cheaper online too.

Pioneer's new DVD-/+RW is 89.99 in K-town at Canada Computer's, Online at a Canadian retailer its 121.99 plus I'd have to pay shipping costs, and if I ordered from the south, itd be more expensive to ship plus duty costs. A WD 250GB drive is $169 in K-town and $222.99 online.

So the drives I will buy locally. Can anyone recommend a nice enclosure that is stackable, preferable able to screw together or atleast be sturdy.
