How To - Buying a Computer
These instructions will guide you through the necessary steps you will need to take in order to find the right computer for you.
Decide what kind of technical specifications are needed for your computer. Say you want a computer for storing an exorbitant amount of illegal downloads. You’ll need a computer with a large internal memory, high processing power for long downloads, and many ports for USB devices.
Determine your budget. It’s important to be realistic about how much you should spend on your computer. If you are buying a computer for your business, then a sizable allowance would be fine. But if you are more likely to buy a computer to use a handful times, forget about, and spill coffee on it because you absent-mindedly used it as a coaster, you may what to go with a more modest budget. Be honest with yourself.
Make a list of what software you’ll need to go with your computer. You may just need the basics like Microsoft Office, but if you plan to use your PC for more creative purposes, like developing doctored photos of your neighbor and his cleaning lady in order to blackmail him, you will have to consider appropriate software like Photoshop. Also keep this in mind when planning your budget.
Consider your options of computer brands. You need to be careful about who you buy. Maybe you think trusted brands are a little too pricey, but that’s not true. That’ll never be more obvious to you when something on your discount laptop breaks after ten minutes of use, and the warranty the manufacturer offers conveniently does not cover it.
Congratulations, you now completely prepared to purchase your new computer. Now all you need to do is enjoy your new investment as much as you can, as quickly as you can, before it is infected with malicious software and you have no choice but to get a tech savvy professional to wipe your hard drive.
