PC VENDING PREFERENCES
(1) Buy PCs, laptops, etc. from independent vendors: You usually pay more but get much better service (experts) and a hard copy OS. In Rochester NY I recommend Microworx,
(2) Staples and BestBuy offer good combinations af prices and services. The BestBuy Geek Squad people are very helpful.
(3) On line vendors such as Newegg and Tiger Direct get consistently good reviews and I have had no bad experiences. I prefer the organization of the Newegg site.
(4) Key Boards - Logitech
only. Microsoft keyboards are over priced and are the only ones in my
experimece that have been problematic. I prefer white corded
keyboards that are
usually not stocked in brick-and-mortar stores. I have bought some for as little as $15 each.
