There is nothing worse than going into a store to browse, and having salesperson after salesperson ask you if you need help. And that's what you'll find if you go to Best Buy. And then, if you do need help, esp. with computer questions, the salesperson will be completely clueless on what you are asking. The store is often crowded, and if you can get out of there without being hounded about the extended warranty, then you are lucky. If you really need something that can only be found at Best Buy, go to their website instead.
