Best experience I ever had with a store was the Micro Center in Santa Ana/Irvine California in the late 90's. As long as you bought one of their in-house built machines, you could just walk into their lab sit down and they'd fix just about anything for free while you sat there and asked questions. I first got the nerve to build my own machine from just watching the tech nerds do their thing while I picked their brain. I just recently threw away my last micro-machine a few weeks ago. It a P233 with 72 pin simms. The thing was the size of a small refrigerator and about as heavy. It still worked running windows 95
but was tired of the giant dust collector taking up so much room in my garage.
Wouldn't you know I just found a box of old zip disks... and nothing to read them with now.
