    Buying Guide

    Buying Guide - Desktop Computers

    Desktop computers - Desktop computers offer power, stability, and expansive screen displays that enable graphic designers, engineers, architects, small business owners and everyone in between to effectively complete all necessary tasks. Unlike a laptop, a desktop computer is built as a kind of hub for a central base of operations, and can offer much higher degrees of functionality and storage space than any other commercial form of computer.

    Memory - Because of their stationary nature, desktop computers can possesses enormous amounts of both traditional hard drive memory and RAM. Additionally, other stand-alone processors can be added to increase the total computing power. The processing speed of a desktop computer, which is normally measured in gigahertz, can be increased beyond the speed of the highest end laptops to create a remarkably responsive computing experience. This is particularly important for individuals who plan to run numerous calculation-heavy applications at the same time.

    Branding - Several companies, including Apple and HP, have manufactured desktop computers for decades. Choosing a desktop computer based on brand alone will not necessarily provide the best computing experience. Mac’s intuitive software and graphically agile interface will be more useful for some applications and professions, while HP’s mathematically oriented interface will generally be a better fit for intensive spreadsheet business applications. However, each computer is engineered to provide speed and adaptability. While PC’s tend to attract more viruses because of their ubiquity, it can occasionally be a challenge to find suitable software for a Mac because it is too specialized.

    Monitors - If you are purchasing a desktop computer instead of a laptop, you should choose a suitably generous monitor with an ample display. A large monitor with a high resolution reduces eye strain and allows you to clearly display numerous documents and applications at one time, which is particularly beneficial if you are trying to run a small business and must multi-task on a regular basis.

    Other Accessories - Because of its size and stability, a powerful desktop computer can also double as an entertainment venue. Purchasing a set of exterior speakers will enhance this experience. Additionally, spending time finding the ideal mouse will also dramatically impact how easy it is to use the computer. A mouse should be sized to fit easily within the palm, and have a laser beam instead of a physical roller ball that enables it to track. A mouse with both a left and right hand click button option and central scrolling ball is ideal.
