Finally! For all us St. Louis folks Microcenter set up shop in Brentwood! I got to see one when I went out to California last year but the girlfriend put the quash to any thoughts of going in :(. At last I can take advantage of all those MC deals folks post in the Cyberdeals section!

I make a trip to my local MC at least once a week for sanity/insanity reasons. I still get the feeling of a kid walking into Toys'R'us. Their prices are somewhat higher on a lot of things, and usually lag a few weeks with the latest and greatest, but nonetheless it still is exciting to walk in there.

Yeah I have one a few minutes from my just outside Philly. It is a great place to just lose yourself in (and sometimes your money :D )

Yep, I just discovered the joys of the Philly MC myself. Got in on the i7 for $200 deal.

I doubt I'll do all my shopping there, but for small stuff that the shipping normally doubles the price on? Yeah, I'll drive over for that.

Luckily I work about 5 minutes from there, so I pop in from time to time to have a look. You would be surprised at some of the steals you can nab from their open box section. I remember back when the X800 series video cards came out I got myself an X800XL AIW for $55 because it was missing 2-3 accessories, and it was still going for $170~ish on newegg brand new :)
