You could pay upwards of $4,000 for a laptop computer--but if you knew to shop at Jem Computers, you might have saved almost $2,900 by buying a dandy Sony VAIO laptop for a few bucks over $1,100. Granted, the Sony's powered by a dated 200 MMX processor . . . but do you even know anyone using a laptop with a faster CPU? It's a great deal for a cash-tight entrepreneur.
By now, that Sony is probably history--Jem Computers moves its stock at a brisk pace--but the news that will cheer any penny-pincher is that there are plenty of bargains out there, in everything from computers to office furniture. Read on to find out where.
