    If you need a computer but can’t afford a new one, consider going to a used computer dealer. A used computer dealer can find the PC that is right for you. From a desktop computer to a stylish laptop notebook, they will have a wide selection at lower prices. A lot of these stores will refurbish the hardware on a PC that someone else no longer needed. This could mean replacing the motherboard or graphics hardware. Other times, these machines just have outdated software and need new drivers. These businesses make deals to get wholesale prices on parts and accessories, so that they can offer cheap machines to their customers. If you aren’t comfortable buying your laptop used, you could also check out retail outlets. Often, these places can offer closeout prices because they get overstock items, which other shops can’t sell. You might get a bundled deal that includes a desktop tower and monitor for the same price as the screen alone at another store. Or maybe you can get the notebook that is perfect for your home workstation for half off. Many times, both of these kinds of stores will offer other electronics and accessories. You might find common networking cables or complex server parts. Perhaps you’ll even get lucky and get a discount on a TV or home theater system. While buying a computer is a big investment, it doesn’t have to break the bank. There are plenty of ways to get an affordable computer that will suit your needs.
