In my previous post I mentioned that I found it easy to pick which retailer I was interested in buying a new PC from.
Today, I’m going to give you the top three online retailers that I use to find PC parts for rent and which one I really like.
In a future post, I will give you an overview of how I use Amazon and Microsoft services to find new parts for my computers.
For now, let’s take a look at what each retailer has to offer.1.
PC Parts and Hardware Rentals from PCPartPicker.com2.
PC Repair and Maintenance from PCParts.com3.
DIY Tech Repair from PC Parts Depot4.
Computer Repair from Tech Support.com1.
Amazon Prime Now for Free3.
Amazon HomePlus for $49 a month4.
Best Buy Prime for $69 a month1.
Lenovo ThinkPad T470s and ThinkPad L450s for $1,249 each2.
Acer Aspire One 15 and Acer Asphodel 15 for $2,499 each3.
ASUS Eee PC for $3,699 each4.
Acer XPS 13 and Acer X301 for $5,699Each of these three retailers has a dedicated storefront, and they all offer free shipping, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
I’ve already mentioned in the previous post how I buy parts on Amazon, and I’ve also mentioned that when you’re using Amazon’s Prime Now service, you can use the same Prime membership to get a bunch of PC parts at a fraction of the cost.
If you’re looking to buy new PC parts from a third-party seller, you’ll have to pay for the shipping.
But if you just want to check on your PC parts, the Amazon storefront is your best option.2.
Lenovo T470 and ThinkPads Lenovo T570 and Thinkpad L550 for $599 each3: Asus EeePC for $399 for each ThinkPad4: Dell XPS13 and X301 Dell X500 and X5X for $899 each5: Acer Ascent One 15 for only $1.996: Dell Z1 for only 10 bucks7: Acer C720 for only 7 bucksAmazon has also made some changes to its website.
Instead of giving you a link to each and every part that it sells, Amazon now links you to the products that it is selling.
That way, if you go to the same store as a different product, you will get a different set of prices.
You’ll also find that you can search by manufacturer, price, and product category.
In addition, you now have more than 200 different categories to search for specific parts.
These new categories include computer parts, graphics, tablets, headsets, peripherals, and more.
If it wasn’t clear by now, these changes to Amazon’s website are going to save you money and time, so make sure to check it out if you are looking to find parts for your laptop.1: Asus T470 for $549 (and it will get upgraded to $649 with Amazon Prime)2: Dell C720 $899 for each (with free shipping)3: Dell Aspire Eee for $499 (with $5 per month for two years)4: Acer X5 for $249 (with two years of free shipping on new laptops)5: Dell Laptop for $149 (with one year of free on new models)6: Acer M5 for only 5 bucks7.
Acer Z1X for only 9 bucksAmazon’s website is still mostly the same as before.
There are still plenty of items on display, but you’ll be able to search by price, category, and even search for certain products.
Amazon has also expanded its selection of accessories.
You now have a total of 18 different categories for accessories, which includes keyboards, mice, speakers, monitors, gaming monitors, and so on.
If the items you search for aren’t exactly what you want, you should still be able find something at the same price.
If there is one item that you want more of, Amazon will ship it for free.
This feature is especially important if you’re going to spend more than a few hours per week on your computer, as you’ll want to be able get what you need for your day to day computing needs.2: Acer Z2 for $59 (with shipping included)3.
Dell X5S for $179 (with 10% discount on new PCs)4.
Asus E9-7900 for $199 (with 12% discount)5.
