Whether or not you are a newbie to computers or an old pro, when purchasing a new computer there is so many options that it can be overwhelming to decide what to purchase. You will be investing a large amount of money in something that, if taken care of, you will have in your home for a very long time.

PC Information number 1: 


The biggest decision you will need to make is whether you are wanting a desk top computer or a portable laptop computer. Let’s go over some of the pros and cons of each and who may do better with one or the other.

To start there is the obvious. A laptop is portable and a desktop is not. However, the newer desktops are so small that they aren’t too bad if they need to take a day trip somewhere.  Energy wise a laptop uses less, however, does not necessarily have as much power as a desktop so if you are a gamer you may be looking for a good desktop.

A desktop also affords more options in screen size, so if you are looking for a bigger screen a desktop may be your best option.

PC Information number 2: 

Students whether in high school or in college are probably going to want a lap top. This will make it much easier to take notes in class and have them all stored in one spot.

It will be much easier to share a printer or use one at the library if need be. It will also be convenient if you are looking to study somewhere other than your dorm room such as the local fast food or coffee shop.

PC Information number 3: 


As for price a laptop will cost you more up front and also more to upgrade.  Say you spill a drink on a laptop keyboard; this will force you to purchase an attachable keyboard and possibly cause severe damage to the internal workings of the computer. With a desk top you can move everything and cheaply replace the keyboard. It is also easier and cheaper to make upgrades to other components such as memory and hard drive size.

PC Information number 4: Final Thoughts  

In the end, it is going to be a tough choice for most of us. The best thing you will want to do is do research first. Start with the pointers I gave you and go from there.

Talk to your local computer store sales person (keep in mind they are trying to make money.) As in any large purchase do your research and don’t jump into the purchase on impulse.
