Laptop Buying Guide: How To Choose A Laptop

Confused about where to start? In the age of seemingly infinite laptop choices, makes, models, brands, form factors and screen sizes buying a laptop can be a daunting task. At South City Computer we can help you to make an informed choice. Unlike the big box stores that offer the largest variety of confusing choices who employ pushy commission driven sales people, South City Computer focuses on offering its customers high quality affordable choices. We specialize in discounted grade A off lease corporate professional laptops. These laptops are not your Best Buy or Walmart special. In fact, you can only buy our laptops through a corporate dealer, not at a consumer big box store.

South City Computer has repaired thousands of laptops over the many years we have been in business. You could say we are an expert on knowing which laptops are good and which ones are junk (most are pretty junky actually). We cherry pick the best laptops that meet our stringent standards for quality, durability, and longevity. Then we customize them for our customers and include a 1 year in store warranty to set your mind at ease. We are so confident in the quality of the laptops we sell because our customers tell us they are great!
