Price Computers are well known for
Power PCs at very affordable prices. However, we
have now stopped selling laptops. We apologise if
you have been directed here by an older link. But don't go away. If you are
looking for a cheap laptop we have some
suggestions on how you can get yourself a bargain
laptop. There are several sources of low priced
There are literally hundreds of thousands of
people who have unwanted gifts or nearly new items
that they get rid of at silly prices. Many of them
have the latest - or near latest - laptops and
laptop accessories such as
cheap laptops and bags.
also upgrade items like laptops very often and need
to get rid of their older ones, some just a few
weeks old. Laptops depreciate faster than cars! Get
yourself a nearly new laptop, most of them even with a
warranty, and save money.
Laptop suppliers often have excess stock they need
to get rid of, or a fully functional laptop with a
minor blemish like a surface scratch on the
paintwork. They are usually willing to let these go
at a give away price.
are auction sites etc where you can pick up a
cheap laptop at a very affordable price. eBay
comes to mind, but there are others. QXL shut shop
but there's still the preloved site, Craigslist
common sense rules apply when not buying a laptop
from an authorised business. Ask to see the
original receipt, get copies of the licences for
any software installed on the laptop and arrange
to meet the seller at their home. Do also take a
proper signed receipt complete with the owner's
address and phone number.
If you know the make and model number of the
laptop you want you can use
price comparison sites. Note that with these
sites there may be extras such as delivery you'll
need to take into account. Further, not all offers
from all retailers are equal - some may be
bundling free software, extended support, freebies
such as laptop bags etc., which skew the value
You could also try searching for
laptop coupons to give you an extra few quid
off the price.
Sometimes making a purchase at the retailer's
website rather than over the phone could work out
significantly cheaper. In fact, some retailers
offer their best deals only on their websites.
Have you heard of freecycle? It's a site where
people give things away. The snag is only that you
have to go pick it up. It's not often that laptops
appear on here but it's worth keeping an eye on
your local chapter of Freecycle.
