With all the wheeling and dealing that seems to take place on the internet at all times of the day, it can sometimes get confusing just trying to find your own deal. Finding the best price on your new laptop is most likely your highest priority at this point, but there are other important factors as well.
In this article I will discuss some of the best ways to ensure that you get the ultimate price on your new beauty, as well as a few other tidbits that shouldn’t be left out.
At first you can check out prices on famous and reliable website such as Walmart, eBay, Amazon, or the authorized distributor and vendors. Head on over to these websites and see what kinds of prices are listed for your specific notebook. Make sure that the price listed is for a brand new machine. Alternatively you can look at auctions that are about to end. This method will usually give you a little better indication of what your specific laptop.
Then you can go to a couple price comparison sites such as shopping.com or pricegrabber.com. What these sites do is list a bunch of merchants that are selling the specific product that you are looking for. What is great about it is that a price is listed by each merchant, as well as customer reviews of the store (merchant).
A lot of these price comparison sites will even list the shipping price, and then calculate your total cost for whatever you want… It’s a win-win situation for you!
So now you are going to want to search for your specific notebook on a few price comparison sites. When the merchant listings come up, look for prices that are better than the ones you got from various website. You will probably want to skip merchants with a bad rating, or at the most, go in and see why they are rated poorly.
One more thing — Look at the shipping price… Sometimes you can get free shipping, or shipping at a much better rate than on the certain website.
Hopefully you have found an even better deal at one of the price comparison sites online. If you want, you can even go to some of the big name computer retailers and look at their prices, (even though many of them are listed on the price comparison sites). Sometimes you can find clearances though that will beat any of the prices you have found.
One other last point — Reliability is very important, especially with a purchase like this. For the eBay auctions you are going to want to look at the seller’s feedback rating, and on the price comparison sites you are going to want to look at the merchant’s customer ratings.
If you take the time to properly use the various resources that are available on the internet, you will find that getting a great deal on a new laptop is a lot easier than one might think.
