How do you know whether the computer you wish to buy is good and reliable?

The best way to protect yourself is to read what others have to say about the computer you are looking at. It is also a good idea to buy from a reputable company. Dell comes to mind, also Tiger Direct is a great place to but on line. I used a consulting company called Computer Buying Consultants to help me buy a computer. They did all the work for me and found me a great deal. I dealt with them through email. Their website is www.computerbuyingconsultants.com -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Apple computers and lap tops are very good to buy because they hardly get viruses Mario 55
