Quite often I get customers who are looking for a new device, and the general response is the same, “I use it only for email, surfing the web, and solitaire”.
Sound familiar? The problem with this is that I can sell you a device that will just do those things, nothing more, and yes, it will be cheap. But I have to ask, why chimp out on quality? I hope you understand that buying a computer is right up there with all major purchases, like a car, or a house. It is an investment. The reality is this; the price reflects directly the quality of that product, and its ability to perform.
When you are in the market for a new computer follow these guidelines:
- Build Quality
You will notice that price is last, and there is good reason. When shopping for a car, do you just look at the price? Or do you take it for a spin, feel the seats, look at the engine, and get to know it inside and out. When shopping for a Laptop PC, get touchy feely, is it heavy or light, can you read the keyboard, are the keys spaced apart right, is the screen bright and crisp, does it feel cheap, does it flex when picked up with one hand, does it get hot while typing, how long does the battery last, what are its limitations, and can I upgrade it in the future. What do want it to do now, and what might I want to do with it in the future? Pay close attention the warranty and return policy. Desktop PC’s are easier to configure, they usually have options to upgrade almost every component, and if they are “Pre-Fixed” or non- upgradable, you are essentially locked in to that performance tier and that will reflect in the speed of how many tasks it can perform at the same time. “You get what you pay for” would apply here.
Of all the things I mentioned, price is not in them. That should be your last concern, if you can change the way you look at shopping for a PC, it will carry over to everything else you shop for. I don’t always look at the price, often I look and feel for the quality of that product, compare it to other manufactures, and make sure I am getting the best quality for the money. Often I walk out of a store not confident that is the best I can do. This will save you time and money in the end. You will be confident in your purchase, and have no buyers’ remorse.
