If you are looking to buy a new laptop or desktop, one of the best things you can do is to educate yourself. There are countless great websites that can help you find a laptop or desktop that will fit your needs. Below are a couple of sites that I frequent and recommend to those looking at making purchases.
CNET Laptop or CNET Desktop - One of the great parts of theses websites is the way it breaks down what you are looking for. It will show you machines that are in you dollar range or it can show you machines that meet certain design specifications. Another great feature are the ratings. It shows you both an Editor's rating and User ratings.
