Methods and Limitations

Most of us have made unwise furniture purchases that a bit of planning would have prevented. Before shopping, evaluate your budget, how you’ll use the furniture, how it fits in with your other furniture and tastes, and other considerations.

If you’re planning a computer purchase, get ready to spend way too much time searching for something that provides what you need without forcing you to spend a lot extra for stuff you don’t need.

In order to have something to sell to anyone, computer manufacturers offer a dizzying array of options, models, and price points. We highlight the major issues to consider.

Buy from a store that can advise you on what products will serve you best, how to get started using products, and how to solve problems.

Here are easy-to-follow instructions on how to solve or prevent hardware and software snafus.

Even in our newer-is-better tech world, it often still makes sense to try to get your computer repaired before buying a new one.

Our undercover shoppers found they could save big by shopping around for common computer upgrade jobs and repair work. Our ratings of computer repair shops for price will help you identify low-price, high-quality help.
