To be certain that you are getting the best value for your money, do your research online before purchasing. Your first priority will be to decide what kind of hardware you want to purchase, and the first question to ask is, "desktop or laptop?" Are your people constantly on the road, or is yours an office-bound company? If you're going to go for the laptops, you should definitely research the new Centrino wireless technology, which makes laptops and notebooks completely free to work anywhere.

The next thing to consider is how much power and memory you'll need, and whether you need networking capabilities. You should always choose the most powerful system you can possibly afford, so that it won't become obsolete tomorrow. Once you have a firm grasp of your needs, start researching different brands.

Here online shopping can be of great use. Though sponsored sites will give you basic information, your best resource is consumer commentary. There are many sites that will allow you to see how real-world users rate the computer hardware you are considering. Then go to the sponsored sites to compare prices. With heavy competition and low overhead, you can be sure that you will get the best price possible by comparison shopping online.
