    Computer News and Reviews

Tom's Hardware
An excellent hardware review site, with frequent reviews and daily news.

Sharky Extreme
Another good site with special features like weekly CPU and memory price trends.

AnandTech
A very professional site for hardware reviews.

2600
A simple site for all the hackers out there.



    Where To Order Computer Books


bookpool.com
Discount technical books. Go here first. Prices here are often significantly cheaper than elsewhere.

Barnes & Noble
Of course.

Amazon.com
Another gimme. Note that Borders (and Waldenbooks) are teamed up with Amazon and make use of the Amazon website to sell their books, so I am not going to list them separately.


    Where To Order Computer Equipment

Each company on this list now includes a summary with ratings. The rating is out of 10 points, 10 being the best. Note that the rating does not reflect my view of the overall company, but rather how good of a company they are specifically for ordering computer equipment. I also include an approximate date of last purchase from said company so that you know how fresh my review is.

Rakuten.com? (formerly Buy.com)
