  1. 1. Web_Design_For_Dummies : Part I6 Tips To Best Computer BuyBuying a new computer can become a tedious task these days as many of us tend to getconfused or simply dont know how to choose the best computer from the wide rangeavailable. Here are 6 tips to best computer buy:1. The first and logical thing to do is determine exactly where you will be using yourcomputer from. Do you plan to use it at home, or do you travel with business often? Afteryou answer this question you know if you want a desktop computer or a notebook.2. The next thing to do is determine your budget. There is a wide range of both desktop andnotebook computers to choose from so they can cover any budget. Desktop computers cancost anywhere between $500 and $2000 (Note that many sites dont list the monitor in thecost, so read carefully before clicking the checkout button), while notebooks between $800 -$2000+. Decide on how much money are you willing to spend and continue to the next step.3. Now its time to determine what will you be using the computer for. Are you buying it foryour kid to play video games, watch movies or do you plan to use it for work or internetsurfing? Of course you can buy a computer and use it for all of those things but for exampleif you plan to use it just for business then you neednt buy a computer with the best videocard on the market.4. Are you going to store photos, Microsoft Office documents, mp3 files, video files etc.?You need to think about this to determine what hard drive your computer needs. If youll beusing it to store photos and Office files then you need something in the range of 60GB butno more. If you plan to store many video and audio files then a 220GB hard drive would bemore appropriate.5. Another very important thing to consider, which many people overlook, is how often doyou replace your computer? This is very important because most new computers come witha special OEM license for Microsoft software. As this license cannot be used on any othercomputers, if you change your computer often then it would be a waste of money to buyeach end every one of them with the software and pay for it every time. If you change yourcomputer often it would be wise to purchase a retail copy of the Microsoft software and savemoney.6. Buy a ready made computer or create your new computer by selecting all the partsyourself? In my opinion, if youre a person who changes their computer often then buying aready made one is the perfect choice for you. If you dont plan on changing the computerthen it would be wise to create it yourself at a local store or even on some sites on theinternet. This is because all the big computer companies use proprietary components and ifyou buy a ready made one it is usually harder to upgrade later.
