How To Choose The Right Computer For Beginners

We understand how computers work can be a difficult task especially when they don’t work as intended. However have you considered when buying a computer which one i should purchase and why? We will start by how computers work and explain the absolute basics. This should give you some idea of what to loo out for when you walk into PC World for example and your not relying entirely on the sales person to purchase one for you.

Computers are fundamentally similar and not much difference between them. Motherboards are the foundations of which all computers are built ad allow all other parts within the computer to talk to each other and do what you tell it to.

Components of a computer are at the centre point of a PC for example; the CPU which actually does the hardest work and is the brain of the computer. It makes windows software run fast or slow as well as software, how many tasks you can do at any one time (multitasking). The video card (some are integrated ones which are very basic and cannot run games but discrete ones which costs more money can) converts signals from software in to images we can see and displays to you what you are doing with your computer. The rule of thumb is the better the graphics card or the more money you spend on on your computer whether its pre-built to your requirements or bought off the shelf, the better it will be when it comes to running games or visually intensive tasks.

Memory is vital to a computer also because it is a temporary brain of the system and the more you have the more things you can run at once (multitasking). Hope you get the idea and haven’t lost yet!

The other part which the computer stores memory is the hard drive. This is permanent memory and is where you keep all your pictures, work files and other information.  Just remember when buying your computer whether its a laptop or desktop or even a smartphone for that matter, the more memory (ram) you have the more things you can do and store at once.

Finally you can add to this your keyboard and mice, modem, speakers, internet, printers and a lot of other gadgets that are available on the market and you get the picture your computer is at the centre of it. So to wrap up you need to keep your computer running well, up to date and service it regularly in order to do exactly what you want when you need it.

Nature has it it probably fails when you need to use the computer the most. It can be your best friend or become your worst enemy. Don’t worry we are here to help. Our name says it all.

 

Should You Buy A Laptop Or Desktop?

When it comes to buying computer technology it can be tough to choose which one to part your hard earned cash with. Prices start at $300 and can go upwards of over a $1000. The decision always comes down to what do you want to use it for. You could buy a laptop for example with all the bells and whistles but only use 1/3 of its resources.

To put things in perspective desktop computers will always be faster than laptops and cheaper when it comes to extending the life until your next major upgrade. If you check out our recent post about cost of ownership of a laptop you will know it can rise quite considerably especially if you use it a lot. Therefore if you need assistance and not sure which is the best stuff in market for your money and not get ripped off at the retailers, then why not let us buy one for you. We’ll do all the hard work and all you have to do is tell us what you want.

Sorry if we could not find the complete answer to this question however it is a more of a personal decision and the stuff you can get in the market is huge. Why not call or inquire and try for yourself for free.

 

What Kind Of Person Are You and What Kind of Work Will You Be Using The Computer For?

Here’s the thing. If you are spending more then 6 hours a day working on a project constantly fixated and pounding away at the doors of progress then you may favor a comfy chair and the reliability of a desktop computer. If you are a home body or love to work out of your office 100% of the time then that is probably your best bet.

Now picture a person who codes websites, designs graphics or whatever else your work brings you but basically has a job that does not tie them down geographically. You are a professional on the move, possibly traveling abroad or perhaps you just like to work out of the local coffee shop. Most definitely you are a laptop person.

Whichever the case it is not a huge deal at the end of the day and may I suggest a third option before we leave here today? BUY BOTH KINDS! Trust me, it’s more fun that way.
