But what happens if what you're buying isn't what you think it is?
You know that the brand is good, and you've been looking for a new laptop for awhile.
As you stand there debating whether you really NEED a new laptop, the original twenty people sitting there in line dwindles to three, and the next thing you know, you're standing in line for the checkout with a new laptop under your arm. Although you aren't really sure as the line stretches ALL the way around the building... maybe it's the line for the bathroom?
You get it home and open it, boot it up, and start playing around with your new shiny laptop, only to realize later that it may not be what you want, it seems to run slow when you're online or running programs you use on a daily basis.
Oftentimes companies will release electronics on Black Friday that don't have everything you would expect.
Maybe a slightly slower processor, or less memory, or maybe it just has a cheaper plastic body on it. (If you don't use your laptop for anything beyond checking your e-mail or playing a simple low-graphics game, this might be the type of laptop for you!) These slightly slower parts add up to a significantly slower computer when put together.
This goes for everything from Computers, TV's, to everyday kitchen products. The only thing you can generally relay on would be a computer system that you have previously done research on and you see it on sale during black Friday. That way you know what you are getting. If you ever need to know if a computer is a good purchase to get you can contact us and tell us the specs. We would be more then happy to tell you if you are getting a good deal.
There ARE really good deals on nice electronics during Black Friday, you just have to be careful!
Companies are looking for a quick sell, if you look carefully through the ads on the advertisements they send out, you'll usually see a couple of really good deals for laptops or other electronics, typically there is a limited quantity available... unless you get to the store super early, and wait for several hours in the cold, chances are you'll miss that deal.
Once you get inside the store you'll find that there are tons of electronics with good prices that are laying around the store. They're hoping that although you most likely missed out on their really good deals, you'll be convinced to make an impulse purchase of something that's a little lower in quality, and since they sometimes don't advertise it, you can't research it to make sure it's a good buy.
The only way to make sure that what you're getting is what you really want, is to do your research before you go. If you need help with a list of what you might need in a computer or a laptop, or anything that connects to your laptop or computer, you can Contact Us and we can help! (Well except for your everyday kitchen products... we don't know how to fix a blender.... as a side note what a waste of an iPad!)
Happy Black Friday Shopping!
