ComputerLand Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
ComputerLand was a widespread chain of retail computer stores during the early years of the microcomputer revolution, and was one of the outlets (along with Computer City and Sears) chosen to introduce the IBM PC in 1981. The first ComputerLand opened in 1976, and the chain eventually included about 800 stores by 1985. After this time the rapid commoditization of the PC led to the company's dowfall, with most of the retail locations closing by 1990. The company officially ended in February 1999.
One unhappy customer shared this in a review, "The price for fixing my unit was not worth the cost, so I ended up just paying the diagnostic fee. When I went to pick up my unit, there was damage to the top of my laptop which were not there prior to me dropping them off."
