Great article ! Classifieds are definitely great places to find good deals on tech gadgets. Craigslist is one of them if you live in the US. If you’re in Europe, you might try EuropeGiant at http://www.europegiant.com as Craigslist is not really popular in Europe. It’s a great classifieds platform just like Craigslist but for Europe. Good deals can be found on classifieds for almost anything but people should also be aware of scams.
