Shopping Tip: How to find the cheapest computer prices in Delhi?

Written by vik

Topics: How-to

If you live in New Delhi or adjoining regions, you may be knowing that ‘Nehru Place’ in Delhi is the popular computer market in Delhi where not only Delhites but people from all of Northern India flock to get computers and electronics at the cheapest wholesale prices.

Nehru Place Computer Market in Delhi

In fact it can argued that Nehru Place (the IT hub) in Delhi has the cheapest rates for computers and electronic items in India as they charge you wholesale rates for the items (my friend in Bangalore does not go the S.P. Road, he asks me the prevalent price in Nehru Place shops!).

So if you want to know the lowest possible price of some computer-related item or some electronics item and you did not consult Nehru Place shops then chances are that you have spent more than what you should!

In my opinion (and in the opinion of my friends and others), there are some shops in Nehru Place (such as the ‘Cost to Cost’ and ‘Computer Empire’) which lead the pack by providing the greatest discounts. They usually their prices (of almost all items including computers parts, hard drives, laptops, printers, external hard disks, web cam, keyboards, motherboard, pen drives, UPS, mouse, monitor, accessories etc). Please note that these are the biggest shops there (Cost to Cost is the bigger among the two and I also like it more; they also have DIY (do-it-yourself) ATM-type machines where you can feed your items and get automated price quoting to do your cost planning before buying!) but that does not mean you should ignore the smaller shops. Computer Empire people, for example, hitherto looked very proud and not very customer-friendly; they also started publishing their prices only later than Cost to Cost. I will soon write a guide on computer shopping in Nehru place from my experiences. You can see Nehru Place photos here.

How to find the cheapest computer prices?

Cost to Cost on it’s website is publishing the full price list since some time now. All you have to do is to open an account and download the list though they do not update it daily (the prices also do not change on a daily basis). Registration there will take less than a minute and then you can get a PDF list of prices and do your price analysis for the external hard disk or an assembled computer! You can also find the pdf in Google cache but then it may be an old version. By the way I bought an external hard disk (1 TB Seagate with 5-years warranty) and it cost me 4600 Rupees.

Here is a snapshot of the list of prices uploaded on 7 January 2010. You can go to the site clicking the site link above and do your price analysis and research before buying your computer or other electronics. If you do not live in Delhi, you can still use the list to compare prices.

    Good sharing. I was not aware of it. Really useful.

  4. Vikas I bought battery chargers and some other things from Nehru Place even when I was in Bombay/Pune… But I generally walked to any random shop – and the prices were still good, but this information is terrific!! Thanks 🙂

    Hey Man,

    Its an excellent inforamtion you have shared and i will agree with that…i have recently visited Nehru Place and have heard of Computer Empire and its genunity with friends but after a brief survey of the other shops landed to Computer Empire and really it gives a customer satisfaction when u deal with these guys not only their prices are best but they also guide you abt the product and others and which will be better as per personal requirements..AM NOT A TECHNO GUY…and doesnt have much information abt computer products but am a smart buyer….and all you guys trust me….COMPUTER EMPIRE in one for THE BEST….and give you 100% customer satisfaction…

A local retailer is saying that i f i give him the ps2 today he will giv me the day after tommorrow n want to take 1000rs .its a bit risky. Should i give him hre or it can be more cheaper and reliable in delhi

  9. Vikas Garg says:

    Any idea of website of Computer Empire. I searched on Google, Yahoo but no luck.

  10. neeraj says:

    yeah its completely true…..Its really a better way to shop at cheapest price but there problem is that……you have to wait long for your turn and they don’t behave properly and don’t provide complete information as they expect customer already know detail about the product from internet.
    so be prepared yourself before you there next time.

    thank you.. give me info?

  18. Parv Sharma says:

    “cost to cost” is the best place if you know how to assemble the computer , but if you don’t ,have to still depend on mediators who charge some extra bucks for service (plus commission per product extra)

  19. Garth Rolan says:

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. However think about if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Good blog!

  30. Amar says:

    It is indeed the place to get the cheapest computer or parts but i think they are not reliable.. i am a victim of nehru place..i assembled a pc 2 years ago whcih costed me around 14000 – 15000,got it repaired and replaced more then 3 times but its still not working.. my pc switches off unprompted and on the screen it comes as no signal.. it has not even worked for2 months in a go i find it waste of money..well that was my luck. u can try yours..

  31. Amar says:

    Its better to buy them from a branded manufacturer through their retail outlet.. Those are reliable, and u get peace of mind and service at your doorstep..

  37. jaideep says:

    i have been to nehru place but have to admit had a very bad experience @ cost to cost they sell out of warranty product and were very rude when confronted . I haven’t been to computer empire but i heard they sell genuine products only . Hope this comments helps other people

    • Actually the sale of cost-to-cost guys are very high, thats why they dont care about their customers these days and show that they are very busy and even do not care to tell the rate or price of any item on their counter in shop, So it is just wastage of time to go to nehru place own their shop, just see their price-list online and finlize your product and just buy straightway. The price list of cost to cost can be seen in this way from Nehru Place website or from cost to cost website and stay cool..
