Hi guys!

Well, i'm trying to sort out the details of my trip, and there is one i'm having problems finding the answer through the internet. Believe or not... it's electonics!!

I've been considering purchasing a netbook on Sydney. Nothing too fancy or expensive. A basic one (but not that breaks 2 days after i buy it, of course!!) and small. The reason I'm thinking about that is that i would like it to keep in touch with home. I've searched the web and i have seen a couple of them that meet my criteria (specially $$$), the problem is that those places are online sellers, that only ship the product. You can`t pick it up yourself, wich i think it's a drag. Since I'm gonna be staying in hostels i don't think that's practical. And i don't even know if you can give a hostel adress to those sites. Anyway, mi question is if anyone know some store that has netbooks or electronics on sale and that you can pick it up yourself. Or at least if anyone has bought something through this purely online sites as a tourist in Australia.
Any help would be aprecciatted. I know this is a bit of an odd question, but actually i think it's gonna really help my trip.

A local may know a better store but I believe the popular electronics retailers in Sydney are Bing Lee and JB Hi-Fi. You can shop online or just find the store nearest to you.

Thanks for the info about the sites. Sadly, this are more expensive than the online ones. they fall out of my budget. Anyway, thanks!
