    It was a blast showing you around Huaqiangbei, Linus! Thanks for taking time out of your insanely busy schedule. Turns out my editor already has a decent editing rig, so I'll be giving this PC away to a lucky fan in an upcoming video. If you're interested in winning this PC (and some cool and rare Strange Parts swag) definitely keep an eye out for that video.

    hahahaha. Love those places with just everything everywhere, disregarding organisation at times and very B2B-driven, in the sense that one guy has the memory modules, and his/her cousin has the cpu:s. Strictly random. Was in one place in Bogotá, Colombia, that looked and worked the same way. Ultra specialised and family-b2b driven. Tightly packed with gear and the strangest of parts.

    For a first trip to China, Linus did right by getting someone who helped. Would have been better to bring a bilingual native with him and have them help, not another foreigner - unless that foreigner can say (for example) laptop in Chinese. My recommendation [that worked very well with me] is to learn Chinese (including how to say SSD or memory stick, etc. in Chinese), and then develop a good relationship with one (back-of-the-mall) vendor. Foreigners earn more money than locals in China, and helping the local economy is actually a good thing. I would negotiate a 50rmb price down to 20rmb but still pay the vendor 50rmb anyway - and tell her or him to pocket the extra. I would also bring other mono-lingual Americans to the same vendor for their computing needs, and that went a long way to develop a trust relationship. After a year, my vendor would go out of their way for me to do right: Telling me things like, that is fake or that is too expensive or that is a good price. If my vendor didn't have it, they would find it from others that did, and not disappear for a half hour, but actually bring me along. That relationship with one vendor was key, and that is what Linus or his friend didn't have.

    This is what happens usually when you are overwhelmed by the quantity of choices. When you want to get the best deal you should have time to think and weigh some options. Plus you should already know roughly where to go to buy which part. The merchants can smell you from a mile away and they will take advantage of your need to get the parts so you won't be able to get the deal you want if you rush like what Linus did here.
