Greater Deals in Choosing the Right Computer

You do not buy a computer every six months, so when it comes time to change your PC or Mac a few years, you risk falling into a somewhat stressful situation: there are so many models and technical features that it is difficult to navigate.

Here are some tips to follow to better shop your next computer:

Identify your basic needs: laptop or desktop?

You may have always had a desktop computer, but often regretted not having had a laptop to carry on a trip or just to sit in the living room watching TV in the evening.

Know that there are now also ultraportables, more expensive, but much lighter and thinner (convenient for travel). From Tech Generation you will be able to have the perfect information.

Establish a preliminary budget

Do not be fooled: shopping for a computer based on price alone will not get you anywhere except perhaps frustration when you realize you’re missing some options. However, if you have a rough idea of ​​the amount you are willing to put on the purchase of a computer, you can then better decide between the options offered.


It is important to know the current offer before rushing to the store or to your favorite site. For example, will you need an i3, i5 or i7 processor? Is it better to install a SSD, hybrid or conventional hard drive? If these terms are unfamiliar to you, check with a friend or clerk to avoid paying for a performance you may not need.

Read the descriptions

Is the operating system (Windows, Mac or other) installed and included in the price? If it is a desktop computer, is a monitor (monitor) included in the total price?


Do you need performance?

Processors, graphics cards, hard drives and RAM offer you different levels of performance.

In the case of processors, Intel’s Core (i3, i5 or i7) range is the most popular. The higher the number, the more performance you will get, but the higher the price will be.

As for graphics cards, some computers have one integrated into the motherboard, but these cards are rarely good enough for you to play games – except maybe the Solitaire.

With regard to hard drives, SSD technology is ultra-fast, but much more expensive. You can opt for a small SSD as the main drive for your computer to start up and run faster, then for a conventional disc to save your documents, photos, and music.


Do not neglect the components and ports

Do not forget to determine if you need an optical drive or recorder (DVD, Blu-Ray), an HDMI port, a Thunderbolt port, or if the computer offers enough multiple USB ports to plug in all your accessories.

Moreover, if you already have a computer and want to transfer some parts to the new computer, make sure with the seller that the latter is compatible and will have the ports or slots needed to accommodate them.
