Advancements in technology have shrunk the size of computers, increased arsenals of portable music, and maintained the size of the moon. Reap the rewards of modern times with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 toward software, computers, and accessories at the Microsoft Store in Oak Brook.
The Microsoft Store at Oakbrook Center offers an array of innovative products—from computers, gaming systems, and software to smartphones and music machines—that make life easier and cause obsolete electronics to long for the touch of human fingertips. A multitude of Xbox 360 games await the talons of dedicated joystickers, where virtual private eyes can crack the case of L.A.Noire ($59.99) or dabble in undead choreography with Michael Jackson: The Experience ($49.99). Capture web-cam moments in HD with a LifeCam HD-5000 ($49.99) while warbling along to 32 gigs of music on a sleek and sentient Zune HD 32 GB ($199.99). Robot-building dads and kids building new robot dads can chart their blueprints on all-purpose laptops, safeguarding plans from hackers and spammers with the prophylactic power of Symantec Norton Internet Security ($69.99).
A knowledgeable staff of technophiles is on hand to steer shoppers through the Microsoft store’s labyrinth of electronic goodies, suggesting machine upgrades and answering the tough questions such as, “Why does my computer still smell like gravy?”
