Should You Buy a New Computer or Fix the Old One?

Unless computers are something new to you, you have probably already asked yourself this. That is understandable, because if your beloved computer doesn’t work like it should the urge to just throw it away gets pretty strong. Still, you probably wonder if you should just fix your old machine. This article will assist you in deciding whether to keep your old computer or get a new one to enjoy your work and play. Since I’m a computer repair technician, perhaps you are thinking that I’ll just flat out choose the repair option. Not so fast, though! While there are unlimited reasons to repair a computer, there are many more to purchase a brand new one as well. While the price of cars is a lot more than that of computers, if you had to choose between repairing and buying a car recently, you may think on similar lines this time too. That is, make a column about why you should repair your computer, and another about why you should purchase new. This is one quick way to reach a reasonable conclusion. In addition, keep in mind that someone else may have the exact PC model as well as the exact issue, but that does not mean you should blindly follow his or her decision. That is simply because there is no absolute right answer here. You’ve got to do what’s best for you. Similarly, while this brief article is here to help you, at the end of the day it’s your individual decision to take. Don’t listen to those who claim that they know exactly what’s right for you. Buying New VS Fixing the Old Your budget Getting a new computer is mostly a more expensive affair compared to fixing. So if you have a limited budget or you are somewhat frugal fixing should be the way to go. Data consideration If you keep your old PC, you don’t need to worry about your photos, documents, emails, music and other things going anywhere. However, if you decide to buy new, you need to transfer all your data to the new machine. If you can take care of things yourself, that’s great. However, not everyone really can! Also, if your computer fails to boot, you will be required to extract your data from the hard disk. That usually requires a good technician. That means, if you buy new you will have to pay for your computer as well as a technician fee. Upgrade route In case your PC is simply a tad bit slow or can’t perform a specific thing, upgrading the video card or RAM should do the trick! Or, sometimes, you may need to upgrade your USB 3.0. These options are certainly cheaper than purchasing a new computer. Application installation If you buy a new PC, you will need to reinstall the applications. Most you can simply download, like Adobe Flash Player and iTunes. However, with MS Office and other paid applications, you will have to get new product keys. Now that you know the pros and cons of each, which one will you choose? Here are some great computers that won’t strain your budget.
