Guide to buying a new Computer

DON’T buy that new computer without reading?


Most people purchase their new computer on an impulse buy and just go to a large outlet store and look at a price range they are willing to spend and if it looks in fashion without actually knowing what their buying, they have no idea how their new computer will perform for them.

The advisor will tell them a particular unit will work or they could have spoken to someone that has some idea, and that’s all that matters to most people at the time.  Straight from the box it may work well and do just what they need it to but then they start installing all the other software they haven’t been asked about and then the problems may begin; it does not have adequate processing power or memory installed in the device.  The other flip to this is they sell them an overpowered unit that will do moneyclipeverything they need plus more than they will ever use, at a price tag five times more than was needed to be spent.

In general (not all cases) store advisers are just sales people with little or no training about the real world application and hardware the customer would need to use the unit for.


Their aim is to sell add-ons after they have reeled the customer in; add-ons will be the extended warranty and security software, then maybe an external storage or cloud storage too.  This is all very well, and in most cases may be needed and the correct advise however the main issue is how much professional knowledge they have on all the software out there that may be better for the customer’s situation.  Most of these large store advisers are again only trained on the products they sell in-store.  They cannot be non-bias on what they offer for the 

current situation
