I work for a small/midsized law firm and after being screwed by CDW one too many times, I am looking for a decent place to order my computers, pieces and parts and electronics for the office from. If anyone has any suggestions or nightmare stories to tell I would love to hear them. Thanks.

Hi there,

In the US http://www.newegg.com is a very good place to shop.

In Canada you can find http://www.tigerdirect.ca/ and http://www.ncix.com/

All of these stores have very good reputations and should be worth taking a look at.

I agree with newegg. Their prices always seem good to me, they are super fast shippers and the customer service is excellent. http://www.buy.com is also pretty decent, never had a problem with them either.

To research companies, I always go to www.resellerratings. com first and then www.my3cents.com. I may not always find the ideal company but I know which ones to avoid. The first computer I purchased was from Envision Company and I was suitably impressed that I recommended them to friends. So far five other people are happy with their purchase experience and the computer.

A couple years ago I bought a Lenovo from the online site. Now, running into trouble with malware, I called the help number. I was connected to Atlanta - not India. A tech who spoke plain simple English was very patient and basically told me I could ship the computer to them and they would set it right or he would work with me "right now" to do it.

I followed his advice and now my computer is like new and running smoothly. I feel that this type of support
merits a good word to anyone seriously interested in a new laptop.

newegg owns and is my favorite online store to shop at. The shipping is the quickest available.

Tigerdirect is fine
Zipzoomfly is fine

I think a little more information would be helpful. We can sit back and suggest places to buy stuff all day, but that may not be enough. A lot of companies depend on CDW to not only sell stuff, but to act as a technology purchasing consultant since most small businesses do not have technology personnel on hand.

If that is the type of thing that you need, post back and let us know so that we can make informed recommendations. If you are only looking for a place to buy cheap stuff, I would stick to those already recommended.
