BUYING A COMPUTER – THE BASICS

1.) RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY (RAM)

One of the computer’s key components is its memory and it is calculated in megabytes. It is important to know that 1000 MB gives us 1GB (gigabyte) which means that with added megabytes, your computer functions better. These days, the least amount of RAM one can get is about 512MB, but ideally, for better functionality, one should go for computers with at least 1GB of RAM or more.

MY RECOMMENDATION: when getting a computer, get one with at least a Ram of 1GB in order for it to function well. In essence, the bigger the RAAM, the more efficient the machine itself.

TIP: Instead of a computer with a higher memory, you can buy one with the minimum requirement (1GB) and then proceed to buy memory sticks, separately which will boost the computer’s memory. This should save you a substantial amount of money.

When searching for good computers, you may also need good networking cables to connect your network devices together. Find high-quality networking cables at Kabel online.

The Dell computer has a rather interesting history behind its invention. In 1984, while still studying at the University of Texas, Michael Dell with a capital of $1,000, created ‘PCs Limited’. Since he couldn’t afford a lot with that capital, he began working right out of his dormitory and built PCs with stock components. As this was the 80s and was standard at the time, he planned to make the computers compatible with IBM.

Michael Dell dropped out of college when he realized that selling computers to buyers directly could determine what they wanted. He was given $300,000 by his family which was the added capital he needed to move his business along.

A SUCCESS

The Turbo PC came out in 1985 and cost $800. It ran on an Intel 8088 processor with a speed of 8 MHz, which, compared to the computers we have today which run on gigahertz (which are thousands of times faster), was quite slow. However, at the time, that was the best available.
