Discount Laptop - Some Healthy Skepticism

By: John Ducharne

Since personal computers are fairly standard home appliances nowadays, it's no surprise that small, portable laptops are at an ever-increasing demand as well. Thus, prices have steadily dropped over time. They are still not modest purchases though. If you're on a budget and are willing to do some thorough shopping around, make sure you know about the discount laptop that is right at your fingertips.

Above all, when you think you've found a good deal, think again. You need to investigate why a particular notebook computer is so cheap - is it reliable and does it have all that you need?

There are multiple reasons a laptop might have its price slashed. If the laptop was sent to the manufacturer by its previous owner because of a problem and then refurbished at a factory, it will end up back in a store like new, but at a lower cost. Consumers are often wary of purchasing a computer with a suspect history, but a refurbished computer should definitely be considered, especially since there almost always is a full warranty on it. For a discount laptop however, there is no warranty. The important thing to do is to ask a store employee why the laptop has been discounted. Don't fall for a sales pitch - investigate all your options before you invest in a particular computer.

Plenty of discounts are out there and there is no reason to pay too much for your laptop. After all, lots of companies offer quality discount laptop computers, no strings attached, because they simply want to lure customers who might become lifetime patrons, upgrading their computer with that company over the years.
