Things To Consider When Buying A Computer

1. Budget:

The first thing that most of us are constrained to is budget so this is the first thing you should consider. We always want the best but we need to be grounded on what we can afford. So Get a budget and stick to it.

2. Computer brand:

when buying a new computer the second thing that should come into your mind should be what brand of computer do I want to buy. Brand of a computer is determined by some fact like brand popularity, brand durability and availability of parts in the market.

3. Facilities available:

You also have to consider the facilities that you want the computer to have, facilities like wireless enabled, Bluetooth, camera, card reader etc.

4. Memory (RAM)

Memory is the term used for how much information a computer can temporarily store. This factor is typically used when you multitask a lot. If you multitask on your computer a lot, then a lot of memory is essential to a speedy computer. Computers these days typically range from 1 GB to as much as 8 GB.

5. Hard disk:

7. Graphics Card: The first question to ask is – Does the computer have a graphics card? A majority of computers don’t actually have a card dedicated to graphics processing, they simply use the main processor and RAM to power the visuals. However, if the computer does have a graphics card, there are several things to consider.
1. How many gigabytes does the graphics card support?
2. Is it ATI or Nvidia? – The two companies are contemporaries, but each has its strengths and weaknesses.
3. What level of processing power does it have? Not all graphics cards are created equal, so make sure to research the model of the graphics card to make sure you’re not overpaying.
