Tips For Buying a Laptop

Whilst there are desktops and laptops available from many trusted brands like Samsung, Sony and Toshiba, this post focuses on buying a laptop from Dell for less money.

At one time Dell laptops were only available for sale at the Dell website. Nowadays, you can buy a Dell from many traditional electronics retailers as well as online.

There are 3 avenues for buying a cheap Dell laptop or Ultrabook:

  • Buy a new laptop using a discount code
  • Buy a refurbished model
  • Buy a used laptop

Buy a new laptop using a discount code

Most people will take the route of buying a new laptop. This can be purchased from many retailers and a discount voucher is often available from these retailers to get a further reduction in price. The disadvantage with these merchants is that you won’t be able to customise the specification of the laptop, although you can choose different models.

The advantage with buying directly from Dell is that there are configuration options for the processor, memory, hard disk and software amongst other options. Another plus point is the choice of warranty on offer from a 1 year collect and return upto 3 years as well as the option to have next business day service.

It’s worth comparing the latest laptop deals to find a good balance between the price and specification. For many laptops, dell offers a discount on its normal price or an upgrade of the memory or disk. Further money savings can be achieved by using Dell voucher codes which are often available for selected dell models.

These coupon codes usually have a minimum spend amount, so it’s worth checking laptops above this amount in case the coupon discount results overall in a lower price.
