Purchasing Advice

You wouldn't believe how many times I've seen people waste their money buying either the wrong computer for their needs or even buying a new computer when they didn't need to. If you have thousands of dollars to spend on things you don't need, then that's just fine. But if you're on a tight budget and would rather spend your money on something else, get some professional advice before buying that new computer, software program, or piece of hardware.

One of the biggest myths going around is that as soon as you buy a computer it's obsolete. Nothing could be further from the truth, especially these days. Computers have gotten so fast and far ahead of software, that a computer 3-4 years old will do everything 95% of the public needs it to do, and do it well.

Give us a call before you go out and buy something, tell us what you're thinking of buying or the problems you're having with your computer, and we'll recommend the most cost efficient solution to your problem. You made need a new computer or you may just need to add something as simple as more memory to your computer. Case in point - I was coming out of one of the local computer stores recently, when I ran into some friends. They were on their way to buy a new computer. I asked them what kind of computer they had, and what sort of problems they were having. It turned out that their computer wasn't performing like it used to - it had become terribly slow. After some more in depth questions, it turned out that the computer wasn't performing properly because it didn't have enough free space on the hard drive to function properly. Since they had a CD Burner, I recommended moving some of their data off the hard drive and transferring the data to a CD to free up space on the hard drive. For the cost of less than $1, their computer began to function properly again, and they decided not to buy a new computer.
