COMPUTER STORES. Does each store chain gets its own unique computers and laptops, etc., so no one can 'price compare' products?

    Many "chain" store have computers built to their specifications to be sold at the price they determine will sell in their immediate area. They do this with most of their electronics like televisions, phones, etc.. The manufacturer then installs parts according to the price the retailer is willing to pay the manufacturer for the computer, tv, etc..

    yes ... that is true for the major chains. the very similar products at Best Buy and Wal-Mart, for example, are not identical.

    Sometimes: not really different products, but a proprietary model name or number is all they need.

    Mom and Pop stores don't.

    Many of the products at Costco and Sam's Club are unique to those warehouse stores.

    Best Buy sometimes has products that are unique to their store and the same thing goes for Microcenter. Most of the products at Microcenter and Best Buy can also be bought at newegg and/or amazon.

    Fry's Electronics isn't relevant at this point...... They're pretty much done.
