The Great Computer Drought of 2020! (9/12/20 Part 1)

Sam Show Archives, Topics

Are you looking for a new computer?

Where are all the PCs?

Oh dear, its sort of a tough time for that. Since the start of the pandemic and the advent of everyone doing everything from home? Computers are in short supply!

So, what are you options? What’s the hold-up? We talk about that and more!

Jonathan’s tips:

  • Check out the big companies like Dell, HP, etc.
  • Sign up for an account before you’re ready to buy!
  • Be willing to go up. Better to over buy a little than to under buy.
  • Check the websites, newsletters, etc.
  • Companies do have refurbished machines! Check around from them.
  • Ask about return policies ahead of time.
