I can't think of a single thing I'd need to " try out " in a retail store before buying. Computers? The only thing that matters about computers is their specs, which are online. You can view the case online.
Laptops, not desktops. After specs, the most important things to me about a laptop are the feel/layout of the keyboard/touchpad and the quality of the display. I've actually never tried a laptop before purchasing online, but now that many online models are sold in stores, I could see myself doing it the next time I need one.
Obviously, there are a lot of other things that people like to try or at least see before they buy, some of which have already been mentioned.
