Hi, all,

Does anyone know where in Paris to get the best prices on a laptop or one of those little netbooks? My husband's laptop has developed the "blue screen of death," and we can't seem to resolve the problem permanently.

We're thinking maybe a little netbook that we could use for travel back in the states. We saw some in Darty and in Magma's window (no price given). We would consider an online purchase as well.

Any opinions? Thanks for any help.

If you've got a mobile phone, you might try checking the "boutique" part of your mobile phone provider's website. SFR (and so, I assume, most of the other carriers) are offering deals on a netbook if you take a 3G clé subscription.

If you're in Paris, you may want to take a look at Surcouf, le specialiste de l informatique : materiels, logiciels et accessoires or Pixmania – idée de cadeau de noel, achat en ligne, ordinateur, High-tech, Electroménager, jouets, … if you prefer shopping online.
Cheers,
Bev

well, well

Darty has huge shops and so does Fnac within Paris.
You could also check Carrefour or Auchan around Paris.
Darty seems to pay back (so they claim) the price difference if you find it cheaper elsewehere.

The only advantages of Darty and Fnac is after sales services, as I understand.

For rock bottom price: Cdiscount, Grosbill, Surcouf, but waht about after sales?

best

I'm sure you're aware the french keyboards are different, unless this isn't a problem for you. I personally can't use one.

You can find lots of deals on line. You might try Amazon.UK. I don't think the US Amazon will ship a computer overseas. If you're adventurous, there's Ebay but check the sellers reputation before you buy. Also, check the warranty and make sure you're still covered once the computer leaves its country of origin. If service is important to you, you may want to get one locally. Right now, with the back to school time, everyone is having sales on computers including places like Intermarche, Carrefour and Geant.

I guess no one really noticed, but this thread dates from nearly a year ago. I suspect CFrance has come to some decision about a laptop or netbook by now. I'm going close off this one - not because there's anything wrong, but just because I think the issue has been resolved.
Cheers,
Bev
