Discount Computers

TigerDirect.com - Offers budget pricing on a large selection of both desktop and laptop computers. Desktops are available in both fully-built systems and barebone kits. Try these specialty links: Best Selling Desktops & Best Selling Laptops

Dell Home & Home Office - Everybody knows Dell. They offer great computers, many at nicely discounted prices. Still, their prices tend to be a bit higher than those listed above. So downgraded by one star.

Computer Geeks Discount Outlet - Offers a fair selection of dirt-cheap refurbished desktop and notebook computers, and a fewer number of overstocked systems. Click Refurbished Desktops or Refurbished Notebooks to go straight to their systems page . By the way, Geeks is known for their great customer service.

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.

PC Mall - Enormous selection of computers to choose from, with a handy search feature that allows sorting by price, manufacturer, or feature. PC Mall sells brand new, overstocked, and refurbished computers. Downgraded by one star due to high return rates in recent weeks.

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 powerful work station or server.

Overstock.com - Usually a large selection of PCs to choose from, often at the lowest prices available. Overstock sells both surplus and refurbished desktops and laptops. Prices are so low that the newer systems go fast, so don't delay if you see what you want. Downgraded by one star because Overstock offers few new systems. Note that Overstock also offers great prices on electronics, cameras, and more. Downgraded by one star due to higher-than-average return rates in recent weeks.

NextDayPC.com - Offers competitive prices on an impressive selection of computers. 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 Fall 2004-- double check to confirm). Downgraded by one star due to higher-than-average return rates in recent weeks.
