What can you do with a computer? Well, you can use your computer to buy a new computer. Not surprisingly, computer stores were the first stores to hit the Internet. It turns out that computers and the net make a great match. The world of electronics is about specifications and part numbers. The inside counts more than the outside. The best way to learn about the inside of electronics is with a computer.
