Buynow Computer Market
If you are looking for computers, parts, hard disks, mice, cords or getting your laptop repaired then Buynow is the
place to go. Everything for computers can be found there. New power supplies for old laptops, batteries, memory cards for
cameras, flatscreens, CDMA modems, desktops and laptops. English will be spoken a bit but best if you come with a Chinese
friend who can interpret for you or let us arrange a shopping tour for you.
Shop around and bargain hard. Also look across the road (connected by a skybridge) for more bargains. Touts outside Buynow will sell you pirated software for RMB10 per disk as well as porn DVD's for the same price. No money back guarantees. Ask to see the list and they will burn you a CD.
You might want to think twice about bringing these
disks into a western country, customs may not appreciate it.
