The Remote Help Expert
So your faithful computer, which has been with you for years, it’s starting to show the signs of age. You don’t
particularly want to change to a new one because a) you don’t have a money tree you can just prune and get $900
out of, b) you don’t even want to think about the pain of migrating all your documents and applications c) you’re a
hardcore XP user and have heard horrible things about Windows Vista plus d) you don’t want to have to learn all
the shortcuts and ways to do things in a totally new operating system after all the time you spent learning the ways of
Well I’m here to make your transition less painful. Maybe even enjoyable!
Let me start by saying that if you are a total novice on computers I suggest you seek the advice of an expert who
DOESN’T work for the company you’re trying to buy the computer from. He’ll help you suggest a system that
dovetails your needs.
If you are an intermediate user and understand the basics of computers, this article is for you.
The first choice you need to make is whether to get a desktop or a laptop. Traditionally desktops are cheaper for
the same performance, and are more configurable (things like an audio or video card, modem and other devices
can be exchanged). Laptops on the other hand are mobile and don’t use as much space. It’s interesting however
that with the advances in processor technology in recent years, laptop prices have gone down while performance
and battery life have gone up, and for the first time last year (2008) there were more laptops than desktops sold
worldwide. The reason for this is simple: a relatively economical laptop can now perform good enough for most
users basics needs of browsing the web, handling email and documents, maybe watching the occasional movie,
even to some degree graphic demanding software. So if for whatever reason you have to be able to take it with you
– even to the occasional Starbucks to relax and write in peace, you might want to consider getting a laptop for your
next computer. If mobility is not an issue at all, stick with the desktop.
Windows. As of this writing, and providing you pay extra, you can still get a new computer retrograded with
Windows XP. But the most common current choice is Windows Vista. Vista brings 5 versions: Starter (not available
in developed countries) Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate. The basic thing to know about these
is that home basic and premium are not designed for a company’s usual network setup. And I’d suggest between
the home versions, choose the premium one – I’ll explain why in a moment.
7. From now and until then if you buy a new computer with Windows Vista Home Premium or higher you can
upgrade to Windows 7 for free (Now you see why the choice between Basic and Home Premium). For those XP
fans, you’ll be glad to know that many of the characteristics of XP that you came to love are present in the new
Windows 7, while retaining the good points of Windows Vista. Reviews of the test versions have been positive, and
I have myself tested it and was very pleased with how it performs.
dedicated versus integrated graphics. I’m not going to go into details on each of these; otherwise this article will
become a booklet. But there is one thing I want to mention on this, which is true whether you’re choosing a
computer, a new stereo system, a new car, etc.:
computer is only going to be as fast as its slowest component. So don’t waste your money in the fastest processor available in the market
if you’re putting it in a computer with a low access speed hard disk drive.
So when choosing a new computer, if it comes pre-configured, learn to recognize poor choices made by the vendor and avoid those, and if
it is configurable, know how to configure all different components so there is a harmonious synergy that results in a powerful computer
which increases efficiency and productivity.
