The expanding and highly competitive laptop marketplace brings with it an increasing choice of features, functionality and of course price for the laptop consumer. Many factors need to be considered to ensure the purchase is suitable for the user’s activities.
The laptop comparison website, Cheap Laptops Centre, is pleased to make available for its growing base of users a number of handy tips and guides to aid in the process of buying a new laptop. This is especially relevant if it is a first time laptop purchase.
The tips are available throughout the website from factors influencing the purchase which not only include the initial selling price but also the delivery cost, returns policy, preloaded software and technical specification and its suitability for the individual user. The options of buying new, refurbished or used software and laptops and the associated benefits that may arise.
The guides discuss the option of buying from High Street retailers versus online stores, the issues to consider for each and their respective merits. Also accessible is the guide on the additional software and accessories that should be considered which do not usually form part of the laptop selling price, this includes Internet Security and Office productivity suites.
A key area to consider is the total cost of ownership over the useful life of the laptop. Thus often overlooked is the warranty period. Most new laptop purchases provide a one year warranty period, but given average users expect to utilise their asset for two to three years, there arises a potential financial cost in the event of a breakdown. The cheap Dell laptops deals featured on the website, when purchased from Dell for example, usually have a one year warranty but this can be extended to three years during the laptop purchase process.
The company welcomes user reviews and if found to benefit customers, they will look to source additional tips on addition computing areas including netbook and tablet PC purchase, Wi-Fi setup and security, system backup and cloud computing and storage options.
