Tips and Tricks to Help You Find Cheap Notebook Computers

Jun 25, 2008
There are several tips and tricks to finding cheap notebook computers, both in the online marketplace and at regular brick and mortar stores like Best Buy, Circuit City and Walmart. While in many cases the cliche of you get what you pay for can hold true when it comes to buying cheap notebook computers, if you do your homework and only buy from reputable businesses, the adage does not have to apply to you.

The first step to take as you are looking for cheap notebook computers is to define what your price range is for the purchase. If you define cheap as anything under a thousand dollars, you will find that you will have a lot more options to choose from than if your price range is under five hundred dollars.

Next, decide which brand of cheap notebook computers you are interested in buying. This will rule out some choices. For example, if your price range is under a thousand dollars, you probably will not be able to find a tablet style cheap notebook computer or Apple brand notebook within your price range. If you do not have a preference, but are looking at cheap notebook computers to perform basic tasks like surf the Internet, check your email and write things in a word processor, just about any laptop will suit your needs.

Once you have narrowed down what you can afford and what you are looking for in cheap notebook computers, start checking out the websites of different companies. Good places to start are www.dell.com, www.compaq.com or www.sony.com. Get an idea of what everything costs, then start looking through the ads in the newspaper. Most brick and mortar stores like Best Buy, Circuit City and WalMart have regular sales on cheap notebook computers, making them even more affordable (and sometimes even cheaper than you can find directly from the manufacturer online).

As you are doing this, make note of any rebates being offered on the cheap notebook computers that you are looking at, either online, direct from the manufacturer or by the store itself. When combined with sales, this can cut the cost of owning a cheap notebook computer by as much as 20 percent or more. When it comes time to actually purchase one of the cheap notebook computers that you have researched, decide whether or not you need an extended warranty. These usually cost more money than they are worth, but can give you more confidence in your purchase.
