Discount Computer Stores

Computer Geeks Discount Outlet - Computer Geeks is the place to shop for barebone computers and parts at rock-bottom prices, making it a great store for -- well -- computer geeks! Complete pre-built systems, mostly refurbished or surplus, are also available but can be hard to locate on their site. Click Refurbished Desktops or Refurbished Notebooks to go straight to their systems page. By the way, Geeks is known for their great customer service. - Tiger offers a wide variety of discounted systems, both name brand and generics, as well as peripherals, barebone systems, and parts. The do-it-yourselfer in particular will appreciate Tiger's large selection of kits and parts. Try these specialty links: Best Selling Desktops & Best Selling Laptops

Dell Home & Home Office - Everybody knows Dell. They have great computers, many at discounted prices. Still, downgraded by one star because they don't sell parts.

Gateway - Gateway is known for their muscle PCs used by gamers. If you can spare the extra cost of these premium machines, Gateway is the way to go. Downgraded by one star because they don't sell parts.

Dell Business Center - Similar to Dell Home & Home Office, above, but caters to businesses. So don't expect as low a price unless buying in quantity. Shop here if you're looking for a workstation or server.

PC Mall - Fair prices on an enormous selection of PCs, peripherals, and parts, with a handy search feature that allows sorting by price, manufacturer, or feature. PC Mall sells brand new, overstocked, and refurbished computers and parts. - Usually a large selection of PCs to choose from at some of the best prices, but few parts and peripherals. sells both surplus and refurbished PCs. Prices are so low that the newer systems go fast, so don't delay if you see what you want. also offers great prices on electronics, cameras, and more. Downgraded by one star due to higher-than-average return rates in recent weeks. - Offers competitive prices on an absolutely enormous selection of computers, peripherals, and parts. (They claim over 70,000 stock items.) Next Day PC really shines when it comes to custom configured PCs, which they refer to as SysteMax. Best for orders over $500 because shipping is free (as of Summer 2004-- double check to confirm).
