Your Personal Computer

This article will act as your guide in purchasing a new computer. Remember that computers are expensive and constantly evolving. If you are going to buy one anyway, you might as well set your sights on the latest model available so that it can last you a long time. By the time it needs to be replaced, newer models would have come out.

Before you do buy a computer, you need to take into account its functionality. Why do you need a computer? What is its specific or primary purpose? To get an idea and also to familiarize yourself with a computer, it is more practical to rent a unit first. In renting out a unit, you get to find out what a computer needs and doesn't need to meet your specific requirements in functionality. For example, if all you really need in a computer is to do some articles like I do, you really won't need a DVD ROM or DVD writer. A simple CD ROM will considerably cut the costs of a new computer purchase. Furthermore, using desktop publishers like Microsoft Word, Adobe or Notepad doesn't really take up that much space in the computer's memory. This being the case, you can subsequently lower the memory of your computer. The basic memory requirement of a computer nowadays is 64MB. A balanced computer will have 128MB RAM installed in it. Basically, the more memory your computer contains, the more functions it can perform at a faster rate. If you can judge the specific memory requirements of your computer, you can limit the costs of purchasing a computer.

Once you have familiarized yourself with a computer and have an idea of what it is you need, you can begin to start looking around for a brand new computer to buy. Because you know what you want, you can personalize the components of your computer to suit your needs. Personalized computers are easier to use as you know every inch of it and can change any component if and when necessity dictates for modifications.

Finally, people who are familiar with their computers are better able to judge the limits of their units. Overloading a computer with too many tasks or huge programs can cause your computer to crash. Once your system crashes, it's only a matter of time before it crashes again. In this case, re-installation of the system will need to be performed and you can lose all your important files stored in the hard drive.
