How To Buy The Right Computer For Your Needs

Buying a new computer requires a good amount of research because the technology changes every day. The gadget that you brought today will be outdated within a year. If you are new to technology and computers then you would find it hard to get the best computer to suit your needs. You may even spend a lot of money on unwanted features too. This computer buying guide will teach you everything you need to know before purchasing your computer. Computer Review First you need to determine what your requirements are. Do you want to take your computer to work or use them during travels? Do you want to play high end games on that computer or do you need a basic computer to surf the internet and play movies?  Determining your requirements will help you decide whether you need to purchase a low end computer or a high end computer. A low end computer is suitable for browsing the internet and doing small editing jobs like photo editing and word editing. You can also play music and watch movies in it. A high end computer can be used to play computer games because it is loaded with high end graphics cards that support the graphics in those games. High end computers offer more features and they are also priced high. Once you have determined your needs you can go for a laptop or a desktop. Portable computers like laptop, ultrabook, netbook, or tablet computers cost anywhere between $400 to $1,500. if you frequently watch movies then buy a laptop with a Blu-ray drive. A laptop is a better investment than a desktop because you have the luxury to carry it anywhere and it offers the same features of the desktop. Ultrabooks can be used for office work and they are slim and easier to carry but ultrabooks rarely offer a DVD or Blu- ray drive. Net books and tablets have a screen size of 10 inches and they are portable too. You can always carry them in your hand and the battery charge will last for 1-2 days You can do unlimited browsing by connecting them with any wifi hot spots. If you are purchasing a computer for home or office use then you can purchase desktop computers. Desktop computers have a separate monitor, CPU, keyboard and other components. The price of desktops are comparatively high but they are great for work environments. Important Features To Look out For Hard drive space -- Hard drive is where your computer stores your files. These files can be movies (AVI, MPEG), music (mp3) or word files (doc). Try to get gigabytes (GB) of storage. If you are music or movie enthusiastic then you need a lot of space in your computer to store those data. In that case you should buy a computer with at least 1TB of hard drive space. Memory (RAM) - Sufficient Memory is required for various applications to run. If you need to play high end games then invest in computers with 4GB to 8GB of RAM. If you only need a computer for browsing the internet or for working on word processor then you only need 1GB of RAM. Remember there are no RAM options when you are choosing a tablet for your needs. Processor Speed and Power -- Faster computers perform better and you need to invest in computers with more gigahertz of processing power. Unless you are a gamer you need not invest in quad-core or six-core processors. An average home user needs 1-2 GHZ processor, corporate users need 2 GHZ while an average gamer needs at least 3+ GHZ processing power. Computer Ports -- Make sure your computer has all the input ports. SD card ports are needed to read data from cameras. An HDMI port is needed to connect your computer to a Television. An USB port is needed to connect keyboards, mice, and printers. You also need to invest in the right operating system. The Operating systems from Microsoft come at a price while most Linux OS are freely distributed to the public. In the case of desktop computers you need to purchase additional accessories like a monitor, headset etc. Invest in a 17" LED monitor. Also invest in good antivirus software to secure your computer from viruses and other security threats.
