While Amazon has traditionally been a one-stop shop for tech gear, its mid-April delays are making other retailers viable options for getting what you want with a shorter lead time. Online stores like Newegg and B&H are stepping up, alongside (gasp!) actual brick-and-mortar stores like Best Buy and Office Depot.
Alas, the old way of buying techâ€”looking for the absolute lowest priceâ€”is being set aside, as consumers are willing to pay a bit more for any products actually in stock. While we canâ€™t guarantee a particular retailer will have the specific product youâ€™re looking for, all of the ones we checked appeared to have a decent assortment of items in stock that we haven't been able to get through Amazon.
