So Cal Computer Shops

#1
i was thinking about this, and i personally like to buy things at the store, i was wondering if anybody had any So Cal computer store hot spots they like to go.

Im planning on going to FRYS Electronics tomorrow, and am wondering if i should stop anywhere else...

let me know guys, thanks.

Well, I personally like CompUSA over Fry's simply because it's much easier to return items. I hate the 3rd degree that you get at Fry's.

That being said, Fry's certainly has the best selection but the second to worst sales people. Best Buy has the worst. Don't get the "white tagged" items at Fry's, because those have been returned to stock after being sold and brought back by someone.

CompUSA runs the best sales of anyone. I regularly manage to get my CDR's for free after rebates. As far as price goes, that's not a problem since all stores will price match another store, as long as you have a valid ad.

Best Buy will sometimes have a good deal, but they don't have a very good selection of several items. They don't sell mother boards anymore, and their upgrades selection is limited. They like to sell just the main components (monitors, scanners, printers, etc.)

So, as far as hot spots go, it all depends what it is you want to do. I pick and choose my stores by the type of application I want to do and availability of product.

In order of preference for me, it's:

1. CompUSA
2. Fry's
3. Best Buy

Have fun.

Frys is cool, as long as you know what you want, and where it is in the store cause the people that work there are dumb a$$es and DON'T buy any Mother Boards or CPUs cause they always break down... I bought 2 different MB and CPUs there and they stoped working after a week so I just went to PC Club and so far so good...

Good Luck

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
