Buying A Computer
Purchasing a computer in whatever purpose involves costly decisions. Below are the listings of helpful tips of what to look for when buying a computer.
System Tips - Make sure you are getting Windows XP or higher versions. Never settle for an old operating system. XP is a stable version as the Windows 2000 and is user friendly. If your profession requires intensive quality video editing and graphic design, Windows 2000 must be preferred. The only drawback with Windows 2000 is that there are many compatibility problems with the external hardware and software such as the scanner, optical disk drives and others. Just make sure that these peripherals works well when purchased.
Hard Drive Tips - It is one of the most important considerations when purchasing a computer because it is eventually the designated place for all of your files and information. Try looking for the maximum size hard drive because the space will run out as fast if it is of minimal size. It will be either replaced or you need to add another drive to your computer. This means another cost then.
Case Tips - Purchase a computer with a large case and minimal features like the sound and video for better upgradeability. A disadvantage of small cases is that it is difficult to add other peripherals such as drives later. Make sure also that the case supports the standard motherboard, if it will fit your desk or table and if the drives will always be accessible I any way you will position it.
