Save Money on Your PC

 

We can all agree that PC’s or ‘personal computers’ are one of modern life’s essential items and having the latest PC model is vital.  With so many different PC’s on the market, from desktop owners down to tiny notebooks, it can sometimes be difficult to find the right PC for your needs. 

 

Finding the Best PC Deals  

If you’re like most people, you use your PC to keep track of friends, share photographs, make plans, read the news, play games, write letters, store music, watch TV or sports, do your accounts and find the answers to any trivia question thanks to the World Wide Web.  For most, PC’s are now an integral part of everyday life.

 

One problem is that the current pace of computer development means that people are constantly required to update their PC model to keep up-to-date with the latest software and to keep your system running glitch-free.  This can quickly become expensive, but by buying cleverly, you can save yourself a lot of money with your next PC upgrade. 

 

The History of the PC 

The history of the modern PC dates back a couple of hundred years to the calculating machine developed by Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage in the early 19th century.  After this, computers began to grow in size, becoming huge room-sized machines with thousands of tubes and cables governing their every move.  Everything changed in the 1950’s with transistors starting to be imprinted on silicon chips.  This quickly made computers faster and more powerful.  Today, even standard PC’s seem outdated when you look at newer options.  From tiny notebook PC’s like ultra-cheap netbooks to extremely powerful laptops, customers really do have it all.  Whether you need a machine for adrenaline-fuelled gaming, hardcore graphics processing or just checking your social media feeds, there’s a PC for you.

 

What Components make up a PC?

Every PC on the market will come with a specific set of components and all models will have certain components in common.  These govern how reliable and fast they are, as well as how much storage they offer.  Some of the most important parts of any PC model include:

Memory: Any PC will rely on memory or RAM to carry out operations.  Typically, the more memory you have, the faster video streams and games will run.  If you’re a gamer, you should be looking for around 8-16GB of RAM to make sure your PC can handle your graphics-intensive titles.  Most ordinary computers won’t require this level of RAM. 
 
Motherboard: The motherboard is the coordinating unit that links all the different parts of your PC together.  Your motherboard is designed with specific processors in mind, so if you’re considering building a PC yourself, make sure you buy one that matches the processor you wish to use. 
 
PC Case: This is also referred to as the chassis, which is the case of your PC.  This is not merely a shell but an integral part to the overall machine.  The main reason it plays an integral role is that it helps establish the look of your machine.  PC’s are as much designer items as your gaming consoles like PS4 and Xbox One are, so there’s no reason why they need to look dull.  There’s plenty of fun and dynamic case options available.     
 
Hard Disk: This is where your computer will store all your programs, from video to games, text files, pictures and utilities.  The capacity of your hard disk is usually measured in gigabytes, with around 500GB as standard.  If you’re a gamer, capacity is not as important as your hard disk speed.   The faster your computer can access information on your disk, the better,    
 
Software: Whilst this is not strictly speaking a component, every PC will run on software, and the software your PC comes with can determine how well your PC will function.  Make sure to consider the added price of additional operating system tools like Microsoft Office.  If you’re using your PC for gaming, game downloading services like Steam are essential. 
 
Processor: This acts as the nerve centre for your PC.  Your processor will determine how quickly everything runs and if you are looking for a great gaming PC, a fast processor is crucial. 
 

What to Consider Before Buying Your Next PC

Whenever you purchase a new PC, make sure you consider what its primary use will be.  If you’re a student who needs a PC for work, don’t look into gaming PC’s that offer cutting-edge graphic cards.

If your planning on purchasing a family computer that needs to be highly versatile, don’t opt for a netbook, as this will likely be limiting.  Price differences between high-spec gaming PC’s and standard laptops can be immense, so really consider if you would use all that extra power.  You should consider connectivity.  For a family computer it’s important for your device to have a large number of USB ports to connect to different family devices.  You’ll also likely need RAM, as well as hard disk capability to store videos and images.  Plus, a fast processor will come in handy when you are using streaming services like Netflix.

 

What About Macs?

While we’ve been talking about PCs, Apple Macintosh computers like the iMac or their popular laptop range including the Macboook, the Macbook Air and the Macbook Pro are also worth considering if you require an entertainment machine.  These devices have the added bonus of interacting with other Apple devices like iPads, iPhones and iPods.

 

How to Purchase a Cheap PC Model 

Buying a new PC can be a stressful process.  With so many options to consider, you may find it difficult to find the right machine for you.  If you’re looking to buy a family PC, it’s worth checking out high street retailers like John Lewis, and Curry’s.  

Before finalizing any purchase, make sure to consider whether you would be better waiting for a seasonal sale around Christmas like Black Friday or Cyber Monday.  Customers can usually enjoy big savings during these sale events.
