Shopping Tips

A big part of what we do here at 11December involves tracking down computer parts at the best possible price, whether that’s for upgrades, repairs or new purchases.  Here are a few of the latest bargains that we are currently purchasing for customers.

In the laptop market, there is nowhere better to look than the Argos Outlet on ebay.  We never recommend anything less than an Intel Core i3 processor and these days a starting point of 8GB of RAM (memory) is sensible.

Toshiba recently left the consumer market, but still produce business laptops at a higher price point.  HP and Dell make some nice computers at the moment, but for value, we anticipate that Acer will pick up the Toshiba share.  Although we have had a couple of “Friday afternoon machines” from Acer, it’s rare that any come in for repair and there are plenty out there in the field.  In fact the oldest, most reliable old laptop in our office is a 10 year old Acer running Windows XP.

The featured item will periodically go out of stock – it’s a great deal and goes into low availability quickly.  If you miss out, use the “Shop all…” link and you will be presented with all the laptops of a similar spec.  Watch out for the variation between 6 and 12 month warranties if that’s an issue for you.  We typically only feature 12 month machines.  Happy shopping!
