So you're saying it's close? :D Anyway i'm currently working on visa thing. It's a total pain in the arse. I will be taking only one plane, no transfer so i am hoping that when i arrive i will have time to hang around since I have only first day empty. Conferance's will be held during my time of visit all the time. Pffs. -.- Anyway is there a close bestbuy too near The Drake Hotel? If it's closer at least i'll check out there since literally ALL prices are way better than Turkey.

Tiger Direct is within 1 block. Best Buy... Hmm I forget where that's at LOL. Definitely not worth any time. They have limited hardware and what they have is pricey...

Yeah it's the Best Buy in the Hancock building so will be nicer than most but I wouldn't really go to any BB for computer parts outside of of a specific advertised special.

Yeah, i think so too but just to check out if there's anything for my interest. According to my plans, i will be arriving at Chicago O'Hare at 5.25 PM. Next day, i'm free till evening since the program begins at evening so i'll be heading to Elston ave then? :D Are there other shopping places besides hardware at Elston ave? I know the fifth ave, but as i remember there are lot of expensive brands there i guess. Definately not my type. ^^
