How much can you afford to spend?

Currently, (7th June 200) you get a great laptop for Rs.45,000. And a moderately decent one for Rs.30,000. However, the prices are falling. They will continue to fall. So if you cannot afford it now, maybe you will be able to afford it in a few months.

Here are some tips, anyways to help you with your decision:

Make a budget: You can save a lot on your laptop purchase by writing out a budget of exactly what you need and want and sticking to it. Don’t buy a huge amount of hardware space and very high memory if you don’t need it. Buy it if you need it only. People tend to get a little excited when buying so I repeat, decide what you want, make a budget and stick to it!

Get a used laptop: There is definitely a risk involved in doing this. The same risk that is there in buying anything that is second hand. But you might just strike gold. So look out for a good deal.

Bargain: Don’t assume that just because it is a laptop you can’t bargain. Bargain the hell out of the deal. The truth is you can bargain for just about anything. Best of luck!

One final tip: Warranties

Always remember to ask for a detailed written explanation of the company's warranty, especially if you're shopping at some dicey “insanely low prices store”. 

The warranty should cover details like:

  • Who installs replacement parts
  • Who pays for return shipping for major repairs
  • For how long your computer is covered. 

It would be a good idea to find out the addresses of the companies laptop service centers in your city. If the company does not have any service centers in your city, then maybe it’s not such a good idea to buy that brand of laptop.

Best Of Luck!

Jai Hind!
