Need a Computer?

posted Sep 11, 2011, 10:27 PM by Kevin Chow
For many reasons, students in this modern economy need a computer. But you needn't spend more than two or three hundred - the price of a 360 or PS3 - on one. Best Buy right now has some real good markdowns on laptops, netbooks, and desktops. Any of these, even the cheapest and oldest ones, would be great for learning. And, it will easily last you throughout high school. If you buy a desktop, you can even upgrade it! We may be starting a tech club at school very soon, so you will be able to get more help there, too. 

Open box/display/end of life is ok - just make sure you test it thoroughly during those 14 days at home. after 14 days, you can always get more service through the manufacturer warranty. Mr. Chow can also probably help you with any issues you might have. If you don't find a decent computer under $250 through this sale, no worries. Just talk to Mr. Chow.

Local Best Buy had additional $100 off any open box. The deals were absolutely incredible, due to the already heavy markdowns. Multiple computers for under $150, some in pristine condition, some still in the box (It seems to also apply to some clearance items that are now considered "Open Box") Netbooks for $100.

This is just a few of them that I saw, there were a lot.The guy said it was a company wide clearing out of open/end of life computers, so it is not specific to my best buy. Check it out! Look for "Open Box Computer Deals"
