Ever shopped for a computer and realized that you couldn't afford it? Stephen and Thomas discuss legal ways of obtaining electronics cheaply or even at no charge.
No matter where you search for computers and electronics, always keep in mind that caution is very important. Always ask for a receipt where applicable. If on E-Bay, check the seller's listing. If you're using Craigslist, always meet in a public place where other people are surrounding you. Whenever possible, make sure there is a paper trail. If there is none, create one.
