As with most modern electrical equipment, PCs get old but unlike other devices you can upgrade a PC to make it last longer or perform better withou having to outlay for a new machine.
Do you need any of these upgrading:
- Video Card
- Hard Drive
- DVD Burner
- Blue Ray
- Windows Upgrade (Vista, XP, 7)
- MAC OSX
- Wireless Router
Everyday, there are new advancements in computer hardware and software. In the past decade, a computer with 512MB RAM is said to be very good. Now you can find laptops with a minimum of 2GB RAM. Just because something new is available, you don’t have to replace your computer. A slow running computer might just need a PC Health Check.
If you play games on your computer and find that your new game will not play because the video card is to old, then this is a good reason for an upgrade or do you have just too much music for your computer to hold, then you would benefit from a larger harddrive.
Are you on an old version of windows? If your computer can accept the newest version of Windows or latest version of Mac OS, it is worth keeping upto date because newer versions of operating systems like Windows or Mac will offer better security and usually new features.
If you feel that your used computer or laptop works slower than it use to it might be in need of an upgrade, PC Health Check or both.
