 Buy Desktop Computers in Canada

 

Looking for a good family computer? Here are some of our picks for desktop PCs at low Canadian prices. 

 

Our favorite online store for desktop PCs is TigerDirect.ca. The selection is vast and the prices are low. They also stock computer peripherals, as well as barebone kits, digital cameras, wireless networking accessories, and more. Many of the desktop PCs are either recertified or refurbished—they have been taken out of the box by customers (or in the case of recertification, the box has simply been opened) and returned to stores. The computers have been tested and repaired if need be, recertified, and ready to go.

I have personally purchased two computers, which I use for testing children's software, from Tiger Direct. One was refurbished, and the other was recertified. The price for these computers was considerably lower than I have found elsewhere, and the computers were (and still are) perfect.

Other online sources for computers in Canada:

FutureShop.ca - I can no longer recommend this store. Although most of my experiences with them have gone well (they do offer free shipping on most items, which is a real plus), when things go wrong, their customer service is lacking. Of course, this happened to me once, but the customer service was so poor that I will not buy from them again. I ordered a freezer from FutureShop online, it came damaged, I refused it, and they didn't give me a refund nor a new freezer. They needed to wait for the investigation (which was not about me, but between the freight company and FutureShop) before fixing it with the customer. Repeated attempts to get my refund failed, so I had to go through my credit card company to get a refund. Even after all of that hassle - 2-1/2 months of waiting with my money tied up with Future Shop, and no resolution on their side - they did nothing to compensate me. Very frustrating experience.

BestBuy.ca - Sometimes you'll find decent prices on desktop PC's at BestBuy. I find that prices are better all-around at TigerDirect.ca, however.
