IT Specialist To Help You Buy A New Computer
Your faithful old computer finally came to an end and it is time to buy a new one. But what do you buy next, a laptop or desktop, PC or Mac? What specifications do you need and what price is good for you?
PC or tablet?
A few years ago, this would have been a ridiculous question. Today, the tablet can copy almost everything you can do an ordinary computer. You can surf the web, send an email, listen to music, read books, and play games, if you do not mind the small keyboard while writing documents.
Of course, for a serious and more creative work or research and writing long documents, edit photos, videos and so on you will need to own Windows or Mac.
PC or Mac?
The eternal debate PC vs. Mac does not have a beginning nor an end. Historically PCs are much cheaper and they run more software, while Mac, they are more expensive and have high quality in the field of graphic art and creativity.
But now, this argument is academic. Lots of creative people now use PCs while the Macs can have as much software as the competition.
Macs are still considered as premium PCs, but many people buy them for everyday use thanks to their stability, quality workmanship, and cooling system.
Still, no Mac has lower prices than a PC, so by buying a MAC you pay more than you should. Plus, Macs are not immune to viruses, yet you have to buy a security software.
Desktop or laptop?
Most people choose laptops as their main computer most of the time even though they never take them outside. It is probably so because they occupy less space in the room, save more energy and can easily be moved from one place to another.
Desktops, on the other hand, have their own advantages. They cost less for the same speed, they are better for gaming and media editing, and you can easily upgrade and repair them at any time.
The desktop is better for higher productivity, it has a full keyboard and mouse, has a better support for multiple large monitors, which is better than the small screen of the laptops and keyboards. But you can add a mouse to the laptop too, keyboard and monitor in order to get a similar experience.
For most people, the budget is still the crucial moment that decides what to buy. Of course, everyone wants a high-end Ultrabook PC or Mac Pro with Retina, but they are extremely expensive.
If you are looking for a cheap option, first look at the supply of desktop PC-s, followed by notebooks. Because even the weakest version of MAC will cost you more than quite a good configuration of PC.
