Micro Center - (my opinion - great retail environment for computer parts)
http://www.microcenter.com/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micro_Center

The proprietary software device that does not allow printing or saving information without "key" was called "Design Key" or "Software Dongle" by myself. This is the brand "we used" (were provided) by design software (CAD type) kitchen and bathroom design program. (This is the "dongle" device. I do not care if I mention the proprietary software name. It's not very good and it's . . . well, proprietary.)
