How To: Buy Equipment

Mail Order

Ordering computers and other equipment by mail is a convenient option offered by a growing number of retailers. Dell Computer was the first to sell personal computers by mail order; now Gateway and Micron also rely heavily on this method.

Mail order buyers can get customized systems with quality components and fast delivery.
