Many people automatically go to a box store when it is time for a new computer, lured in by their low advertised prices, not considering the additional costs that they may incur. Some of these locations, once you have decided to make the purchase, then start suggesting additional things you need. And while many of these things are important to have, you end up paying MORE than if you bought it from us.
Here is a specific example. We just checked a laptop price online. The Asus R753 17.3” laptop with Intel i3, 12 GB RAM and 1 TB hard drive can be found online for around $608. Our selling price here at C-Prompt for the same machine is $699. However, when one considers the total cost, our machine is unquestionably the better purchase.

We cannot compete with the large sites in terms of purchasing power of the base machine. However, we are convinced that we more than make up for it with our service.
We are offering a Cyber Month promotion.
