Advice

Got a burning question about your next purchase? Maybe we can help.

Tell us what PC-related product you want to buy and why, what you want to do with it, and what you're upgrading from. Give us the shortlist of products you are considering. Model numbers and specs would be helpful. Above all, take a bit of care in writing your email, try to use full sentences - the easier it is for us to understand, the more likely it is we might answer, and the more helpful it will be to other people who read your questions.

We won't promise we will answer everyone's questions - we get asked hundreds of questions about the best products to buy. But the ones we do pick will be featured here. Click here to send your question.
