There is no such thing as a “perfect” computer. It all depends on need, not all the same for everyone, but here are questions to ask yourself BEFORE you buy, this will help you determine the BEST computer for you, which is really the question to answer. You MUST determine what you need the computer to do before you pick one.
Questions to ask BEFORE choosing a computer
- What will this computer need to do? Every computer is used to do different things. Do you need a casual home computer for leisure? One for work which will be running more? Are you a gamer and need one with better graphics?
- How many people will use this computer? If it is only one, it might not need to be that powerful or have as much storage because one person might not be on it as much as a family of four with four separate profiles and folders with information.
- Does it need to be portable or will it just sit on a desk? Computer prices are different when comparing desktops to laptops, and desktops are more powerful generally and easier to make changes too.
- How many hours a day will this pc be used? You want to make sure the fans in the computer will be able to run for long periods of time if you plan on using it for a good chunk of your day. If you will only use it for an hour or two, overheating won’t be an issue.
- What equipment will this computer be connected to? Or have to communicate with? Certain computers will be able to connect to other devices, while some won’t. So if you are looking for a computer, and want it to be compatible with a certain device, check to see if it can before you buy it.
