    Hi Richard,

    Comprehensive site. Do you know where I can rent a laptop (NOT A GIRRI RATE!), intel i7 processor mac or pc, I’ve looked online but I’m not sure about these big companies and prefer smaller shops.
    If you have some clues, advice very much appreciated

      Hi Alice,

      I can’t help you much with this one I’m afraid because I’ve never rented a laptop…

      I spoke to one of the IT guys where I work this afternoon and he wasn’t able to suggest anywhere either. The only thing that he mentioned was that you will probably find mostly places that lease computers long term to companies or alternatively repair shops who rent PCs to their customers for a few days while theirs is in for repair.

      If I were you I’d head to the computer shops listed above and ask around. I’m sure that someone there will be able to point you in the right direction. Maybe start at Ofertas PC since they sell ex-rental PCs. In the past I’ve found the guys at Modular Technology to be helpful.

      If you’re studying in Barcelona you could also ask at your university. The UPC for example seems to rent laptops to their students during term time.

      Other than that, as I’m sure you know, the best way to avoid services which are aimed at guiris is to use google.es and do your search in Spanaish or Catalan.

      Good luck and when you find a good place please post back and let us know. This sort of information is always useful to have.

      There’s a computer retail store that has not been mentioned in this article. Life informatica is a reliable computer store, I’m sure they can help you. I’ve been there several times to buy hardware and the product and price are both very appealing! Big recommendation

    Hi, I want to buy laptop from Barcelona. I am exchange Student here. Can I divide The price to the months with my credit card? What i mean is, ıf I want to pay the price in 3 months. Can I pay 1/3 of the price this month… 1/3 of the price next month… Finally 1/3 in The 3rd month. I am asking because i am not The resident of Barcelona.

      Hi Faith,

      That should be possible, as long as you have enough credit on the card to pay for the laptop in the first place.

      When you pay by credit card, you are required to make (at least) a minimum payment at the end of the month. The minimum payment varies depending how much credit you owe. The remaining balance then stays on the account with interest added (the interest rate varies from bank to bank). At the end of the following month(s) the same thing happens again, until you have paid off all the debt.

      Credit card interest rates are normally higher than you would be charged if you organized an overdraft or loan with your bank back home. But if you pay the laptop off in just three months you shouldn’t end up paying too much interest.

    Hi Richard! Thanks for this. I’m bound to Barcelona tomorrow to shoot a wedding next week and I don’t have enough spare batteries for my camera (long story about airport restrictions and batteries). I was searching the web for electronic shops in Barcelona when I stumbled upon your blog. This list will make my life so much easier!

      Hi Steven,

      Glad you found the post useful, I hadn’t realised that there were restrictions on carrying batteries on flights but can see how it must be a problem for professional photographers.

      Hopefully 1001 baterias will have what you’re looking for.

    Hi Richard. I am a student and i’m going to be in Barcelona around the first week of February. I planned to buy a laptop. But as I don’t have enough time too choose a suitable model, I preferred to buy a used laptop before my arrival, and then purchase a new model in Barcelona. Then, of course I won’t need the used one anymore. So I’m better to sell it.
    Is there any shopping center for Electronics and Computers in Barcelona where I can sell my laptop?

      Hi Nima,

      The only places that I can think of are pawnshops like Cash Converters but I don’t think that they will give you much for a second hand laptop.

      OFERTASPC at Carrer de Casanova 30 specailize in second hand computers (I’ve just added them to the list and map above) but as far as I know they don’t purchase individual laptops from customers. According to their website they buy their stock in bulk from rental and finance companies.

      If I were you I’d try and sell it privately because you’re sure to get a better price than you would when selling to a store.

      The app Wallapop is popular and widely used in Barcelona. Potential buyers filter by location, you then arrange to meet them with the item near your flat (at a metro stop or something) which has the advantage over traditional classifieds that you aren’t letting strangers into your home. I’ve not used it myself but a few of my friends have.

      Popular classifieds sites in Barcelona are milanuncios, loquo and vibbo.

      You could also try selling it at the university. When I first arrived in Barcelona there were noticeboards at the UB where students could pin adverts. I guess there’s now an online version or facebook group :-)

      One thing that you should bear in mind is that most people will want a laptop with a Spanish keyboard layout. The letters are in the same place but some symbols such as @ and accents are on different keys. More importantly, there are 2 additional keys which aren’t found on UK or US keyboards; Ç – used in Catalan and Ñ – used in Spanish. Not to mention the € euro symbol.

      I hope this helps.

        Thank you. It helped me a lot. I guess my best option must be among the classified websites which you mentioned.
        You have gathered a lot of useful information here. I should read them all. :)

    Just wanted to say I really like the site. Ended up here today as my partner wanted a battery for a mobile phone, and after a fruitless search around the market at Encants market at Glories, I was hoping to search for a shop on google and find another English speaking person who had found a good place.

    Now to have a trawl through your site for other useful info :)

    Finding a store can be tough as heck if you can’t figure out what’s written on the storefront. not every word in Spanish sounds like an English word. Nice work btw, helpful

      Hi Karl,

      You’re right of course, the language barrier can sometimes make even the simplest tasks complicated!

      Thanks for reading.

      Hi Hamid,

      I don’t know if the camera shops listed offer a repairs service. If not I’m sure they’ll be able to point you in the right direction.
