What, you thought PC users didn't deserve cool stores too? Not to be outdone by that other opening you may have heard of, Dell has cut the ribbon on a popup shop at 813 Broadway between 11th and 12th. The space was formerly a sales office for a condo, but now it's full of computers, and just in time for last minute holiday laptop-purchasing. Sure, there's no fancy glass staircase. But unlike the shiny new Apple MePa, the Dell store has—remain calm—an actual, functioning bathroom.
