Where to Buy

Just about every type of retailer carries computers these days, from Wal-Mart to CompUSA and everywhere in-between. You should buy at a retailer with which you're comfortable. Look for a decent selection of models from a variety of manufacturers, good pricing (of course), knowledgeable salespeople (harder to find), and after-the-sale service and support.

You shouldn't limit your shopping to the big-box stores, or to bricks and mortar merchants. There are lots of good deals to be had online, either direct from the manufacturer (think Dell and Gateway) or from mail-order or Web-specific retailers. You can even find good buys on brand-new (but often close-out) PCs on eBay (www.ebay.com).
