Some othersprefer brand computers, since they are always brand-trusted. This,indeed, is the same case as the first one.In fact, the most important thing when buy a computer is tounderstand what performance you need and what will it be used for.Some families feel that buying an expensive brand computer cansolve everything.

  2. 2. and what will it be used for. I think it would be better if we choosethe computers according to the ages. In general, the configurationsof family computer users are almost alike for the teenagers who areunder fifteen and those more than 40 years old. This group does notplay online games, neither to do large design, they use computersmainly for the Internet to get some information, check the data,speculate the stock market stocks, to watch movies and so on. So theordinary configuration can meet their satisfactions. As a result, bothINTER platform or AMD platform can be used in either machine.

Relatively speaking, they will take their own advantages indue time. Of course, upgrading the intel graphics media acceleratordriver is also a good method to make the computer up-to-date and toplay games.The other group is the computer workers, computer is a necessity forthem, these users need computer dealing with frequent and messyprograms, they do not require a too high computer graphics card, nordo the high-end performances, but the overall performance should bestable.These users’ configuration does not focus on the computer graphicsor CPU, but on a reasonable stability and overall good collocation.
  4. 4. They require a stable and fast deal with office software, so the userswill tent to choose INTER-chip motherboard platform, of whichstability is relatively high. Take the nowadays ordinary office forinstance, it’s enough for the office configurated with P4 machineswith 512M memory, and integrated graphics. Furthermore,download drivers is capable to make sure the computer can work athigh performance.Cheap price and brand computers are usually someone’s first choice.It’s not a bad thing all the time.
