To Upgrade— or not to Upgrade— That is the Question…

Before you decide that you need a new computer, you should consult with a computer expert to determine whether an upgrade would be more cost effective.

Most people don’t realize that their current computer is probably more powerful than they actually realize. Some of the main reasons people decide they need a new computer are because their systems start to slow down or crash a lot. There are several reasons why this may happen:

  • the hard disk drive may become extremely fragmented
  • there could be many spyware or virus/trojan events on the computer
  • there could be too many programs/utilities opening upon startup of the computer

Most of these reasons can be resolved by cleaning your system by using several Windows utilities and/or Spyware & Virus checking. However, if you are not ‘computer savvy’, you can Contact Us to have your PC professionally tuned up.

Other reasons your computer may begin to seem slower may simply be due to hardware inadequacies. Depending on your computer’s configuration, simple hardware upgrades such as memory (RAM), faster hard drives or video cards may increase your overall system performance.

Many people purchase their computer for simple or specific reasons, such as internet access or office type use, and then start using them with more high performance software such as gaming, audio or video editing, and graphics applications which can be much more demanding on your system.

Also, keep in mind that buying a new computer means that you have to move all of your data from your old computer, and you will need to reinstall all your programs and hardware onto the new one. You run the risk of losing all of your Emails and other non-obvious features such as your Favorites, Contacts/Addresses, Emails, desktop and customized system configurations that you have made over the course of owning your computer. This can be very time consuming and requires a high level of knowledge to determine where these features are and how to move them to the new system. All of this equates to hassles and headaches, and ultimately, more money out of your pocket.

A hardware upgrade may be all that you need to make your system work like a newer computer.
