in Netbook Buying Guide

I keep forgetting that unlike me, some shoppers actually prefer buying stuff in real life retail stores as opposed to sitting in front of their screens with their credit card in hand. If you want to touch your netbook before you buy it or in other words, if you would rather shop offline, here are a few retailers that you should pay a visit in order to score the best deal on a cool netbook. 

1) Walmart

I am impressed. I would have thought that Walmart would take some unknown netbooks and sell them as cheap as possible. Nope, they actually stock reputable netboooks such as the Acer Aspire One! Pay them a visit and see what “everyday low prices” they have on netbooks

2) Costco

Costco is one of the best stores for treasure hunters. You will never know what they have in stock at any given time so that’s why you should pay them a visit very often. For instance, I went to visit the one next to my place and I did not find anything. A few weeks later, I went shopping with a family member to a Costco close to her area and the Acer Aspire One netbooks that I saw there almost drove me nuts! I wanted to buy them all! 

3) Best Buy

The king of electronics retailing. Your shopping should start here if you want to compare a few netbooks and if you want options. Just watch out for those sales peeps because they know how to get you to purchase something “better” and hence more expensive. They say that they’re not on commission but they are still there to sell. It’s their job description!

4) Dollar Store type retailers

Those super discounters usually have quite a few cool netbooks that they sell for super cheap. Don’t expect miracles when you pay them a visit though. Just go there with an open mind and keep checking their flyers to see what they have on offer.

I think that, that’s it for the moment. There are more stores where you can get netbooks but hey, they’re cheap enough for you to waste your time and petrol trying to save $50. If there’s a store that you think I should absolutely share with everyone, please by all means include it in the comments section below and I will update the list accordingly. Thanks.
