Buying a Computer

Hi, since no one writes anything on the website ill serve you with some other random topic, i was sitting on my chair, at work, and i remembered, lets talk about common mistakes when buying a computer.
The first mistake of all, i feel its the most important, is going to some retail stores, like supermarkets and so on, (forget those places), to buy bundles, sure it feels fine, its cheap, the specs are superb but my dear sir/lady there are no miracles, they are cheap cause they don't come with some good quality hardware, most of all cut the quality on the motherboard and rams, thats why they are cheap, in case you are questioning what will happen the answer is simple, most probably will last for 3 years (if u don't use it all day).
The second mistake is one im very familiar, buy from brands, sure they have customer support, sure they help you, sure it last for 2 years (ups? 2 years?). Hmm so i ask you is it really worth it? Some machines are bound to last a lifetime some don't, when they do you're safe, when they don't your screwed, u know why? Counting from when u buy your pc till it brakes down it usually goes from 2 to 3 years, the hardware u need to replace will have doubled its value and something u can find at a real computer store for 30 bucks they sell it for 90 (yeap, its true, not always of course but mostly) and what do you do? Buy another computer cause thats what they tell you to, and they are probably right, cause the hardware they sold you doesn't have any possibility of being upgraded at all.
The third "mistake" (its not a mistake, more like a warning), asking a friend, sure its a friend and they wont let you down, but try to look for the right friend for that, today everyone thinks they know about computers cause they can turn it on and do some downloading from piratebay, that doesn't mean they are the right person for it.
If u are familiar to any of these topics feel free on commenting, if you want i can make a mistake on how to not buy the wrong computer (cause a mistake on how to buy computers doesn't feel right :P)
