  6. 6. Accessories• Wireless Router – Usually a basic Netgear or Linksys router should be good enough for home needs.• UPS – 600VA UPS should give you a backup of 10 mins for your desktop. Laptops usually give a backup of 2 hours on internal batteries.• Printer – LaserJet or DeskJet. If you need color prints for your kids homework and college work, opt for DeskJet printers as color LaserJet printers are very costly. Mono LaserJet printers are cheap and fast if you just need to print in black and white.
  7. 7. Physical Quality• Please check the physical quality of desktop/laptop you are buying. In the net books, some of the supplier use poor quality plastic. It can result in cracks or damages to your precious device. Please make sure the physical quality of the product is something that you want.
