Looking to buy a new computer?

Overwhelmed by all the options available to you?

Highlighted by the high cost of computers today?

For most people, buying a new computer need not be as stressful as buying a new car. Nor has to be so expensive. If you're like most people, and has a limited budget for buying a computer, then you need to try to get as much computer for your money as possible.

Here are 3 simple ways anyone can save money by buying a new computer:

1) Find the best deal.

Sounds pretty obvious. But many people do not realize you do not need the fastest, most expensive computer with the most "extras." In fact, if you're already using an older computer, but at least expensive new computer will be a great improvement. If you do not know much about computers, you can learn a lot by shopping around. Ask lots of questions, compare prices, compare features, then find the best price. Buy at your local electronics store and find the best deals online. You will be amazed at how much money you can save by shopping around!

2) Install your own "extras"

Many teams are in a store has a lot of additional software installed. While this is convenient, not always the best way for you to save money. Also, while many of these extras sound good, does not always need them. They are often the best shopping deals separately for their own software extras (such as word processing, antivirus, popup blocker, spyware removal, games, etc.) And some of these you can get for Free. So before you buy "fully loaded" computer, ask yourself whether you really need all the extras, then shop around to see if you can buy a small team - and get the extras yourself for much less!

3) Do not buy the extended warranty

If you are not a computer "techie", the extended warranty offered by computer retailers often sound like a good idea. After all, who wants to be bothered paying for service on a computer after purchase. But keep in mind that most computers come with a warranty, and most computer problems or will happen at the beginning (when you still have the warranty in effect) or much later (when it might be cheaper to buy a computer again.) Technology changes so rapidly these days. So consider whether it is worth the inflated price of the extended warranty. And, if you feel you really need the extended warranty, then ask to purchase at a lower price. Not all retailers will negotiate on the warranty, but some. And if you buy the extended warranty or not, be sure to back up all files periodically, just in case!

If you have an unlimited budget, consider yourself lucky. And if you do business on the computer, make sure you get what you need, while trying to keep the price down. At any price, buying something that fits your needs is not good business.

We hope these tips helpful, and happy shopping computer!
