    I'm looking for an NZ source for one of these psu's (Compaq part number
    169286-0020). I know I can import one, but a local source would be easier.

    Any pointers appreciated.

  2. You could go down this track but this is the way I look at it.

    I charge $100+ per hour for IT work.

    I am looking at say 2 - 3 hours locating and procuring this part which is
    worth say $250-400. That is if one can be had second hand!

    The maths doesn't work for me.

    The only other suggestion is a US based broker that has access to many more
    machines that are available in NZ. Only question is the cost of freight etc.

    Good luck!!!

    I've already located several US sources for the psu.

    The nice thing about usenet is that by posting a query one may happen
    upon someone who may have a ready answer. In this case it's not
    inconceivable that someone may have solved a similar problem recently or
    even have a psu sitting on a shelf.

    gear. Pretty sure they sell stuff via Trade-Me,also
