Excerpt: I was having problems with my previous HP computer. I went to the local Staples store to see what was on sale. They had better prices on Dell and Toshiba laptops and desktops, but I have tried both of those brands and told them I only wanted to look at HP products. I debated between a laptop and desktop. Both were a little more than I wanted to spend, but I was not going to leave with a different brand and would rather buy at the store than on line for computer products.
