Purpose of the computer.

When you buy a computer you will obviously have thought of a use to which to use it. Whether for entertainment, Games, job, or programming.

Proffesion using your computer

This is the reason you should look for the computer properties. If you are looking for a professional laptop you do not need a heavy computer, but you have to look for a good laptop fast enough, and worth your time and money.

1.      Professional or student computer.

If your work using the computer is strictly professional, for example, Photoshop, writing …etc. Look for a computer or laptop with at least these qualities.

  • A laptop with a minimum of 4GB RAM.
  • A processor speed of not less than 1.9ghz
  • With a minimum internal hard disk storage of 500GB. Or buy an external hard disk of the same size if your internal hard disk is small.

If you want to buy a desktop computer.

  • Look for a computer with a minimum of 2GB RAM.
  • A processor with a minimum speed of 2.4 GHz.
  • And a minimum internal hard disk storage of 500GB, or buy an external drive of the same size.

This kind of computer should allow you to do your work quickly without a lot of bothers. The computer should be fast, and very efficient.

2.      Entertainment.

Computer used for entertainment

If your work is entertainment oriented, for example, video editing and production, music production and DJ, you have to look for a heavier computer or laptop, with heavy graphic properties.

  • Look for a computer with a minimum processor speed of 2.4 GHz.
  • A minimum RAM of 4GB RAM.
  • And a minimum internal hard disk of 500GB, and an external hard disk storage of the same size or greater.

A laptop would indeed be the most recommended tool to use for you in this profession.

  • A minimum RAM of 4GB.
  • And a minimum hard disk storage of 500 GB, and an external space of the same size or higher.

3.      Game computer.

We are looking for a very heavy computer.

Working place conditions.

A user has to analyze their office size, space and table space in order to figure out which kind of computer can fit into their office. For huge offices with a lot of customers streaming in, a desktop would be appropriate.

However, for a home office, or personal use, a Laptop would be okay.

Personal preferences.

While buying a computer, you also have to look for a computer that pleases you. For example, for me I do not like a huge desktop on my desk. I prefer, the small size, and portable computers. Preferably a computer installed on the monitor. One I do not have to struggle carrying.

Affordability

Afoordability matters in buying a computer

The prize of the computer also matters.

As much as a computer maybe pleasing, do not risk your business over a computer. I would rather you find a cheap second hand computer.

Model.

Computer model

The company responsible for the making of the computer also matters a lot. For example, An APPLE machine is way better than a HP machine, which is also durable than a Dell…, ASUS…, and the story continues.

In fact if you peek into your computer technician’s workshop, you will find more of a computer model than other model. This should tell you the percentage of the dead computers, and laptops out there compare to others out of their use by the users.
