Looking for a Computer in Akihabara

My computer is dying a slow, painful death and I’ve been putting off an upgrade forever. Akihabara is full of electronics stuff (and otaku) but I can never find what I’m after. Maybe it’s the surprisingly expensive prices, maybe it’s because I can’t talk to anyone, maybe it’s because I don’t want a computer with an operating system in another language, or maybe I should just shut my face, buy that Panasonic KZYF45JLS model 53-HJCR and be done with it.
