Comparing and Purchasing the Right Computer

The moment you enter a store that sells computers, you are likely to be approached by a salesman who wants nothing but to earn a quick commission by selling you just about any product. However, before surrendering to what the salesperson says to you, it is a good idea to compare different computers yourself, by taking note of the pros and cons of each one. To purchase a good computer, you need to be aware of the various ‘specs’ that computers come with. It is necessary that you understand what processor a computer uses, at what speed it works, how much RAM it has, and the total size of its hard drive. Given below are details about each of these aspects: Processor type A laptop or PC contains a processor that is in-built. AMD Athlon, for instance, is one of the sensible processors out there, especially when it comes to laptops. Intel makes a bunch of very good processors too under its Pentium series. While older computers may come with a Pentium 2 or 3, newer models are likely to have Pentium 4 or better. Processing speed It is the gigahertz or GHz rating of a computer. Basically, it determines how fast a computer works. The higher the value of GHz, the better the running speed! A good processing speed is anything more than 1 gigahertz. Anything below that is likely to be slow. Usually, it is best to go for the highest GHz rating you can afford. RAM Random Access Memory, or RAM, determines how many different programs a computer can run at the same time without experiencing major slowdown. A typical PC or laptop is likely to have a 2GB RAM. That said, many newer machines contain 4GB or higher. Hard drive The hard drive of a computer basically determines how many files you can store in it. For instance, a computer with a 320GB hard drive can accommodate more apps, games, music, audio, documents etc. than a computer with 160GB hard drive. While a typical computer these days comes with a hard drive below 500GB, there are far better machines that contain 1TB or more. Buying the right PC or laptop is not a very hard thing to do, so long as you do not let a salesperson talk you into buying something that is not right for you. The more you focus on your needs and wants and refuse to let your decision influenced by others, the better off you should be when it comes to picking the right computer. Here are some great computers that won’t strain your budget.
