Computer hardware has become immensely affordable and universally available. Many things have happened simultaneously that helped generate this acceptance across all sectors of life – faster speed, lower volume and better ergonomics, cheaper prices, continuous innovation and competition, greater policy support, software development, etc. But availability equally depends upon a well stocked market that is able to supply for the incessant demand. The thousands of vendors and hardware retailers across the world are the interface between the consumers of the computing technology and the makers of them. It is they who provide us with the hardware and the various accessories, who take our complaints, provide backup and troubleshooting when something goes wrong, explain new features & technologies, and the interface for all new products.
Retailing of computers became possible only after the computers became affordable for the common public. Today, retailers are there in most cities of the world, and dozens or hundreds of them in the bigger cities. Some of them have company affiliations, selling computers of one brand only. Some are independent vendors providing accessories across the whole spectrum. Some provide pre-built branded products, some offer customizations. For those who buy computers, the retailers are very important. The presence of so many retailers present the problem of choice, but the choice should be based on product and price offers, reputation and support platform offered.
This section of the directory provides a list of vendors and retailers offering attractive options and prices for various computer products.
