Most of us are price conscious to some extent. It's nice to know what a "fair" price is for an item we are interested in purchasing, especially when we are considering purchasing relatively expensive items like computers and electronics. URLs for several of the better price comparison engines I have found are listed below. Each of the price comparison engines has its own unique features and benefits, but all are essentially designed to help you find the best prices on the specific item(s) you are looking for.

User-friendly features you can expect to find when using price comparison engines include side-by-side comparison of products, buyer's guides, ratings for the vendors/stores listed, product availability from the vendors/stores listed, ability to search for a specific product by using keywords, nicely categorized product listings, special bargains, etc.

You will likely be astounded at the wide variety of prices for any item you search for. Check out the sites listed below. Happy hunting!
