SMART P.C. BUYING

 

 

The dynamics of the computer industry mean that each year we seem to be offered P.C.s that run quite a bit faster and better at a price that is just a bit cheaper.    There is a law that says whenever you buy a P.C., almost invariably a couple of months later you will see a competing product advertised that goes faster than yours for the same price, or performs as well as yours for $300 less.

 

There is no way around this.   Waiting for some new innovation that is now on the horizon to materialise in a few months simply postpones the problem rather than fixing it.

  

Seven rules for P.C. buying are:

 Pack as much punch into your original purchase as you can.   Bundles usually offer value for money.   Upgrading later is less efficient.

Be honest with yourself about your requirements, and donít be afraid to communicate them to a supplier.

 Check the software supplied, especially operating systems.   What versions will be supplied and will you get the manuals?

Discounts- it costs nothing to ask if you are an educational user, or if you are a private user is your employer about to buy P.C.s in bulk?

Think ahead.   Are your requirements likely to change during the useful life of the P.C.

A three year return-to-base warranty is the standard in the industry.   What is the supplier offering?

 Specialist applications are often best served by specialist suppliers, even if the initial outlay may be more than high street prices.
