Actually, my next visit is to Kansai.  But if I'm
unsuccessful, some future visit might be to Kanto.

I'm not very desperate for it.  If I were, I can order it

Knowing what it's called will help...

I'm not stereotyping or anything, but staff at computer
shops seem less tolerate of mispronunciation of katakana
than say....oh....a duty free shop.  Ok, not a fair
comparison...that's like opposite ends of the spectrum!  But
staff at computer shops tend to give up more quickly and
say, "I've never heard of that!".  *ha*  I suppose not just
Japan, but here in Hong Kong, too!
