Buy a new computer; When do I actually need to buy a new computer?
Poor little computer! It has been around for so many years! We know that your computer is like a member of your family. It is always there in your everyday life. You take it everywhere with you, you take it with you to the park, on holidays, to the bathroom … and sometimes you even have dinner with it, yeah your computer is that important.
But as time goes by, you realise that your poor little computer is getting older over time. And little by little, you start to notice that it works slower and it struggles when carrying out simple tasks. But wait, don’t throw it away yet, but maybe it’s time to start looking for a replacement and maybe you should leave your old computer in the storage room for a few years, don’t worry, your computer will be quite happy there.
Do you want to know if it is time to buy a new computer? In this article we will look at some signs that may tell you that maybe it is time to finally buy a new computer.
Don’t worry! And don’t burst into tears, it is not a big deal! It was about time! Okay, so here we go:
– It works very slowly
In the morning, if you turn on your computer and then you go to take a shower, and get dressed, and then you have a coffee with a toast and two fried eggs and then you come back to your computer, but your computer hasn’t started yet. Don’t you think there’s something wrong with it?
There are many reasons why a computer might run too slowly, perhaps due to the age of the computer. You can take a look at this article , where we talk about the most common problems associated with a slow computer and keep in mind that, sometimes your computer cannot take it anymore, perhaps it is time to let it go…
– Your computer is quite noisy
Does your computer make weird noises every time you turn it on? You may work in a noisy environment, or perhaps your old computer has something to do with it…
An old computer makes noises that can be very annoying. From the hard drive to the classic fans, several components of a computer can create noises, due to the age of the computer. Do you prefer to keep your old computer? This way working in a loud environment, or perhaps you prefer to buy a new computer, a quieter one. I think we already know your opinion…
-You are not able to install the latest operating systems
Are you still using Windows 95? How about changing a little bit?
Don’t let the new operating systems go by, as these will make your computer run better. Using the latest operating system in the market is not essential, but if the hardware of your old computer doesn’t let you install a modern operating system, perhaps it is time to buy a new computer.
– You are not able to use the software that you need
This might be a good reason to buy a new computer. You need to use new software, maybe to carry out some important tasks of your work, but your computer is so old that it does not support this, or it cannot execute it properly.
Sometimes, changing some of its components (such as RAM) might be enough to cope, but in other cases, it will be time to say goodbye to your old computer in order to buy a new computer…
– Your computer is often damaged
Is your computer often damaged? Does your computer suffer interruptions, which make you waste your time? And in addition to this, have you repaired your computer so many times that you have already spent a lot of money?
Although a new computer can also break down, usually old computers are more prone to breaking down. And if it is too old, you will come across faults and these will increase over time. Although sometimes you will get by with a single repair, when breakdowns occur frequently, perhaps it’s time to buy a new computer.
– You have no disk space
Over time, both files and programs in the market tend to have a larger size and therefore take up more space on the hard drive. And it turns out that the one on your computer has not been around for quite some time now.
Sometimes you can temporarily solve this problem by creating copies and exporting material to external media, or simply deleting unnecessary material, but other times you will have to accept that, although in the 90s having a 1GB hard drive was the best, nowadays that is very small, therefore you need to buy a new computer.
