This week we’ll talk about some reasons to do this right from the comfort of your own home! Shopping online is always getting bigger and bigger and there has never been a better reason than for the convenience it offers.
You can order direct from most manufacturers right from their website. It couldn’t be easier! But, if you want the best deals, skip to our top tip at the bottom.
Want the Best Selection?
Brick and mortar stores usually stock only the models that sell very well. While this can be a good indicator of models that are popular or cost-effective, you should use this as a starting point to find a model you like and then pick out one with specs that suit your needs.
Also, many manufacturers allow you to purchase directly from their site and customize a laptop just for you. You can choose from specs like your operating system and disk space but can also apply colors, patterns, designs and logos to make a laptop that is completely one of a kind!
Then we come to Reviews!
What better way to find out how a product works (or doesn’t work) than by reading reviews from other people who have purchased or used that product? Unfortunately, some companies abuse the power of reviews by posting phony positive reviews of their products across popular sites. Here’s a few tips on how to spot phony reviews.
Finally, the best reason to buy online -prices!
You can get lower prices by buying directly from the manufacturer, and you can probably get free shipping if you can wait 5-7 days. You can also find a lot of useful coupon codes that may bring the price down even further or include free gifts.
