The Best Time To Buy a Laptop?
Buying a laptop can be a difficult task, especially when you are a struggling college student with little disposable money to waste. Therefore, you might be wondering, What is the best time to buy a laptop?
“Contrary to popular belief, the best time to buy a laptop is before or after the Back to School season,” said Mike Fridgen, CEO of Decide.com “So if you are in the market for a new laptop, now is a great time to buy before prices rise.”
