Rent a Computer in Ames — without the Confusion!

Buying or renting a computer can be one of the most confusing experiences when it comes to shopping for technology. Unlike a washing machine or a suite of bedroom furniture, a good computer that was acceptable five years ago isn't likely to still be acceptable today! No one wants to be stuck with a slow, overpriced, ineffective, heavy, and hard-to-use computer. And you're probably using that computer a lot more than a washing machine, which means that getting a better computer could really increase your quality of life.

What About Name-Brand Computers for Rent in Ames?

The nice thing about Rent-A-Center is that we've got a big selection of name-brand computers, tablets, and laptops, combined with flexible purchase and payment options you need. We get that when you rent a computer, you don't want to be stuck with a no-name dud that can't keep up with you. At the same time, you probably don't want an overpriced computer that does way more than you need it to. That's why we carry the computer brands you know and trust, like Asus, Acer, Lenovo, Dell, and HP — all at great prices.

Should I Get a Tablet, Laptop, or Computer?

Although tablets, laptops, and computers can all seemingly do the same work, having the right computing device can make your life easier. For example, a laptop is all about portability, so if you tend to move around a lot, you'll want to go with a laptop rental. No one wants to lug a desktop to the local coffee shop or study session. The only drawback to a laptop? You should be aware of how much you can do with a trackpad, a smaller screen, and not as many ports and expansion options as desktop computers.

Speaking of expansion, a desktop computer can let you go as big as you want. If you're thinking of conquering the world with multiple storage devices, graphics cards, or expansion cards, you need a desktop. But with tablets becoming more powerful, laptops and desktops aren't the only things that can get the job done. Perfect for casual, portable computing and lounging on the couch, the tablet lets you get work done on-the-run like a laptop but without the hassle of carting around an integrated keyboard. With a wide touchscreen, a tablet is like a blend of a laptop and a smartphone. It may not be the best device for a challenging work session, but it's ideal if you enjoy getting work done on the couch.
