What always missing in computer stores?

If you go to a computer store and want to buy a part for new hardware or anything else on mind...

What does the computer stores never keep on?

What don't they keep stock of?

is this a trick question?

i wanted to know what are most / least selling items in computer stores

SCSI hard disk

USB to ISA converter

RS-232 to RS-485 converter

should I name more ?

^ what ? are these so pricy or not worth to keep?

I think all the above 3 mentioned things are not in demand.

Well it depends from shop to shop.

I don't know about any other city, but here in karachi, the smaller mohalla computer stores have virtually no big hardware on stock. They say that they can order it for you from the

market always. I have seen most of my friends just go to the larger computer market unicenter and techno citi for new hardware and regal and naz plaza in saddar for old hardware.

I am not even going to talk about amd hardware here, even Intel processors like the pentium dual core g860 and celeron processors (sandybridge) are unavailable in Pakistan at the moment.

I have gone so many times to computer stores but never found anyone selling apples there.

Seriously, what kind of question is this!

Go to a mart, you would find whatever you want just then you have to walk a little bit searching for it.

It's bit hard for me to find a good quality thermal paste to stick heat-sink to CPU. This should be available very easily and all computer shops should carry this. Most of shopkeepers don't even know what I am asking. :(

computers!? :P

Thank you very much.

EDIT: I would also love to have cheap (Rs. 100 or lower) fans for graphic card and power-supply and casing. Anyone has any idea where to get such fans? (Fans should be identical to current fans or at least fit in their place and of course DC running computer fans).
