After you’ve read computer reviews and gotten a clear sense of the computer you want, consider buying it from the manufacturer’s website rather than a store.
This gives you more custom options than an off-the-shelf computer you’ll find in a store. Most importantly, you may be able to save money by configuring the computer to your exact needs. See how the price changes as you add or delete certain features to give you a sense of what type of savings you can get.
For example: a less expensive processor will be sufficient for most consumers. Buying less RAM at the time of your initial purchase gives you the option to buy it at a later date–usually for a much lower cost. If you’re a super savvy techie, you can even custom build your own PC to save even more money.
