I am going to buy a laptop in a few days. I've started considering different options and configurations. This is a long process as there are hundreds of options to chose from. While buying a laptop you'll also want to get it at the best price. Asking retailers for prices manually makes it very difficult to get the best deal. I recently came across a website called ConsumerMate.com that makes comparing laptops simpler. Here's a short review of the site-
ConsumerMate.com is a new website launched by the 9.9 Media group. Currently it offers comparison on laptops only but as the name of the site suggests, other categories of products will be added soon. The site offers a simple search feature that shortlists laptops on the basis on brand, price, screen size and weight. You can then view the list of shortlisted laptops with their price and test center ratings. The test ratings are provided by Digit test center. You can then compare the shortlisted laptops. You can also get good price offers through the site. Just leave your contact details on the site and 2 to 3 dealers from your city will contact you quoting their price for the laptop you want.
The site also has an advanced search called Laptop Guru which helps you shortlist laptops through a wizard that asks you about your needs. The Hot Deals section can get you the best laptop prices and some great deals from online merchants. ConsumerMate.com is currently in its beta phase but it can be really useful to get the best deals on laptop computers. Once it comes out of beta, it can prove to be the ultimate guide for a consumer. ConsumerMate has the potential to be next successful 9.9 media project.
