Welcome to The Tech Buyer's Guru, where you'll find hands-on, hard-hitting advice on a wide range of technology products. I founded The Tech Buyer's Guru to make buying PC-related technology a whole lot easier, and have recently expanded into the smart home arena. There's no shortage of information out there, but sorting through all the noise can be frustrating and time-consuming. The Tech Buyer's Guru gives you all the answers you need in a clear, concise manner, based on extensive product research and testing.

Thanks again for your thoughts on the decision [to buy the Lenovo Yoga 700].  I don't remember how I first stumbled upon your site, but I'm glad I did.  I find the information here is much better than the vast majority of sites (and there are a LOT that profess to give good buying advice).

With your advice to various PC home hobbyist / builders ... you do a heck of a thorough and patient job of explaining, edifying us... I read a lot online, and especially at the computer enthusiast sites, ie, Anandtech, 'Hard Forums', Tom's Hardware, and several others. Your site is as good / better than the others at supporting / encouraging folks like me.

I just wanted to give you the update... Me and my brother built this PC and it worked right off the bat for us on our first try!  This computer is quiet, fast and that monitor... oh the monitor (ViewSonic XG2401) is absolutely gorgeous.  I just wanted to come by and thank you for all the help you provided and wanted to say this computer was well worth the money spent.

Part of the fun [of publishing my TBG experience] is just being able to share the joy I had building my first pc, but I also truly hope that people will feel inspired and encouraged to do this as well. There must be a ton of aspiring pc builders out there who think this is simply too hard and will just go buy an off the shelf product. DIY is so much more rewarding!!
