Best Computer Store: Micro Center

Sure you can order what you what online and with Amazon Prime get that monitor or keyboard to you really quickly. But often you need to go to a physical address, look at all the choices firsthand and be guided by people who know what they're talking about. In Houston, Micro Center continues to be that place.

Besides having a wealth of inventory, the super store offers very good prices. The tech staff is excellent, offering on-the-spot friendly advice as well as the occasional workshop. The techs offer repair service as well so if you're having problems and want to somehow keep that ten-year-old laptop alive, they're the ones to see.

Even if you know exactly what you want, Micro Center offers the convenience of your being able to order it online and then pick it up at the store. Making it perfect for those last minute gifts or when your computer blows up beyond repair and you've got a report to get out by Monday.
