How to Spot a Good Black Friday Season Deal - Episode 153

2017-11-19

This week, Avram Piltch helps you prepare for Black Friday, which has expanded into a whole season, with deals over the next couple of weeks. Those deals can be overwhelming, with mass hysteria generated over televisions, laptops and more. Avram recommends making a plan by deciding what it is you are looking for, and what price would constitute a deal, and not jumping in just because something seems like a good price. In addition, he shows off a new laptop he reviewed this week, the [url=https://www.laptopmag.com/reviews/laptops/acer-spin-1]Acer Spin 1[/url]. This inexpensive laptop has an aluminum case and a screen better than some laptops triple its price, but it is powered by a Celeron processor. Who is it good for, and should you consider it? Avram's got the answer.

PC Bloatware Is Not Really a Problem - Episode 152

2017-11-05

This week, Avram Piltch discusses a topic that many of us have forgotten about: bloatware. Over the past few years, the concept has changed, but has not gone away. Instead of Internet Explorer toolbars, today Microsoft and manufacturers pre-install casual games and other software. The question is, is the software that comes pre-installed a problem? Avram's got the answer. In addition, Avram gives us a preview of the [url=http://amzn.to/2h8L1D4]Asus Zenbook Ux430[/url], the latest laptop to receive an Intel 8th Generation Core upgrade.

The Trick of Laptop Pricing - Episode 150

2017-10-22

This week, Avram Piltch discusses one of the biggest problems in laptop buying: pricing. Many retailers, including HP, Lenovo, Dell and Microsoft, list their laptops as "starting at," showing the price for the lowest possible configuration. Those prices are almost always for a configuration that you simply do not want, but by the time you get far enough into the process to know better, you feel committed to the purchase. Avram has some warnings on what to look for, what a minimum acceptable configuration should be, and how to not be taken advantage of.
