So, you have decided it's time to buy a brand-new PC. I am assuming here you have decided to purchase the most current laptop or netbook, and it's a PC you are going for. Your first query should be 'What am I running this PC for?'
At present, if you're a desktop publisher or a high-end gamer, you almost certainly know very well what you want. This short article isn't for you. Then again, in case you're Joe Average, then you might find this short article helpful. The overwhelming majority of individuals use a PC to surf the internet to check and send e-mail and open the rare word document. Even the most affordable Computer will perform these tasks very well. In this case, you do not want to spend more than £400 on your new PC system.
Therefore, start with all the budget systems Alienware Laptop Scree Repair London, and in case you have extra requirements, it is easy to add additional or upgraded components. Dell makes this easy. Too easy. You will never get through the shopping program without upgrading somewhere - even if it is just the color of the case. You will be presented with a vast array of upgrades from extra memory and larger hard drives to blue-ray DVD drives and Graphics Processing Units.
But be disciplined. Ask yourself - do I want this? As an example - storage. I have never used more than 200GB of storage on a hard drive. Unless you're storing files on it, you will not need it either. So, if the budget system comes with 500GB, you're not likely to need to upgrade to the 1TB one. You'll never need it. If by some remote chance you do, it is possible to upgrade later. Most Desktop Computers have a second bay for an additional hard drive. You won't even have to renew your old one. Similarly, if your computer monitor, keyboard, and mouse are on your desk and the case is under it next to your feet, what do you need an orange case for an additional £30?
Get the best you can afford, I suppose. But I have got to tell you. Unless they are sat in the shop next to one another - I cannot tell the difference in picture quality. They're all pretty good these days.
If you've got a huge collection of Blue-Ray DVDs buy a Computer with a Blue-Ray player. You've got plenty of money anyway! Otherwise, you would not need one, would you? All budget PCs will come with a DVD player. Limit yourself to that one.
Keyboard and mouse:
Don't be fooled into buying those wireless ones. I've yet to meet anyone who sat on the sofa while typing on a wireless keyboard. Using a laptop, fair enough. But surfing the internet six feet away from your monitor? Not a probable scenario.
NO. NO. NO. NO. My personal pet hates. It would help if you did not buy it. MacAfee, Norton, Panda. Whatever. All rubbish. I know this, as I've said many times before, I worked for an Anti-Virus company. You will need AV software but download Avast or AVG from the internet for free. AVG is faster and better.
Ram or computer memory:
Yes, if you're planning to upgrade, buy RAM. The more, the better your budget and PC will allow. Much cheaper and more practical than purchasing a high end, fancy processor.
You aren't likely to need more than that Windows 7 home premium, so don't upgrade there. Maybe you'll want to purchase Windows Office. But I would download OpenOffice. It's free. It is very easy to use, and it is possible to configure it to open and save in Microsoft Office format anyway.
The final reason not to get too carried away with a budget Computer acquisition is that in only two years, your Computer will be obsolete. Start saving for your next one at once! And like laptops, two years is about the time to renew a PC generally, so there's not much point wasting your money on one, at £400 that works out at £16 per month or around 50 pence per day.
This doesn't cover all that is involved, but I have given you an insight into what exactly is involved with any luck. There are numerous eBooks and such stuff that you can find around the world wide web. I always go to a company called PC Fix London. They do not just repair desktops, additionally provide IT support also and they are always helpful should you get mystified on something technical.
