1. Where did you buy you pc/laptop?

Dell

2. Where would you look for help if it broke?
If it was that broken that I couldn't fix it I'd consult with friends / colleagues in the know ( computer wise ). Or I'd buy a new one, depends upon whether you mean software broke or hardware broke, and if it was hardware broke depends how broke! New motherboard or processor then new computer, hard disk or memory then replacement parts. Software then a simple reinstall.


3. If you were to buy a new pc or laptop where would you look?
Dell, and other places ( on the net )

4. For pc or laptop acssessories where would you look to buy?
Local PC / component supplier, PC World maybe / Ebay / elsewhere. Depends upon what accessory I was looking for.


5. When buying, would you buy from the cheapest or the better looking shop/site.?

Neither. I'd look for the best deal at the time.

1. Where did you buy you pc/laptop?

I normally build my own. I havent yet purchased a new unit but have had a few second hand ones from time to time. Normally ex-office and clearance stuff being sold cheap.

2. Where would you look for help if it broke?

I can normally cope myself with both hardware diagnosis and software issues. Dont mind getting to the stage of a bit of soldering (replacing capacitors etc) if thats needed. If i was struggling with an issue i would prob ask on here though as there are a lot of really IT knowledgable peeps on here. :)

3. If you were to buy a new pc or laptop where would you look?

I would prob say E-Buyer or possibly Dell. I would probably buy computer shopper or similiar magazine though to see what was going at what price etc from other manufacturers too.

4. For pc or laptop acssessories where would you look to buy?

E-Buyer or one of my local computer shops (who are very good most of the time)

5. When buying, would you buy from the cheapest or the better looking shop/site.?

Would depend on the item really... I suppose price is the major factor but brand / quality is quite important too.

1. Where did you buy you pc/laptop?

From an Apple Store in Austin TX cos of exchange rate

2. Where would you look for help if it broke?

Nearest approved Apple centre (Bristol, live in Swindon)

3. If you were to buy a new pc or laptop where would you look?

Online - Apple refurb store, eBay or Apple Store (new)

4. For pc or laptop acssessories where would you look to buy?

No particular place. Go with the best price

5. When buying, would you buy from the cheapest or the better looking shop/site.?

I don't buy cheapest but I don't buy for looks - reputation is more important. I've seen great deals on eBay but they look too good to be true, so probably are. Trust is most important factor when buying.
