It's now bare-to-the-walls time for CompUSA.

Gizmodo has a couple of shots of a Portland, Oregon CompUSA, stripped clean.

To think I used to visit there fairly often.

Here's another shot:

Hmm, maybe I should stop by and score that swivel chair before it is too late.

If you could claim something from that pic, what would it be?

BTW those photos were supplied to Gizmodo from Russ in Portland.

But not me, FWIW.

    I'd take the 2 APC UPS units. What many people don't realize is that the UPS can (and should) be used for other things in a blackout once your pc has been safely shut down. About two Summers ago during a blackout, I used my 3 UPS units for the following: One for my 32 inch LCD TV so I could watch Saturday night live; one to power a fan on low; and the third was to power a lamp just to keep my neighbors guessing as to why I had power and the neighborhood was dark. ;-) The power was out for a little over an hour, and I had power the whole time.

    . . . been stopping by the one in Beaverton/Tigard, which is now also in its final week of operation, and their "final closeout sale" prices on most stuff is still higher than buying it elsewhere at regular prices. Of course, this is largely because the 40 - 60% off is based off of the original list price for this stuff, not how much most people sell it for. Also, they don't mention until you get in the store that laptops, desktops, handhelds, etc. are only 15 - 20% off, though I think they actually had some at 30% this past weekend. Even then, for example, they were selling an older Samsung Q1 for $550 after an oh-so-generous 30% discount, and I amused myself by going over to the iMac they had sitting there hooked up to the net, and bringing up various stores that were selling the exact same model for under $500, without any sort of sales, rebates, etc.

    And so the mantra goes, "No wonder they're going out of business."

    On the bright side, they did have the Belkin Skype Wi-Fi phones at 60% off, so I did score one of those. So, there were a few deals to be had in there. Just had to really dig to find them.
