Hi, I'm Noah, and today, I'm going to tell you about where you can customize your laptop. A lot of things about a laptop are customizable, whether it be the hardware inside or the exterior look throughout them. If you'd like to get a new laptop that's customized for you, a good place to start is usually the manufacturer's website. Here, you can order a new laptop with customized hardware and choose, for example, what processor you want, what operating system, and even what color the outside of the computer should be. Besides being able to choose all these hardware specifications, some manufacturers even let you engrave personalized content onto the outside of the computer. Now, regarding software choices, you'll also be able to customize what pre-installed software you want. For example, what Microsoft Office package you'll need, and also what photo editing software. However, if you're planning on getting your laptop from a large distributor like Best Buy or Circuit City, these large retailers usually have their own affiliated computer setup services. For Best Buy, that would be Geek Squad. And well, for Circuit City, it's Firedog services. Now, even if you didn't get your laptop from Best Buy or Circuit City or you have an older laptop, you can still turn to these companies to have your laptop customized, though.
