In this article, I will show you the basic factors to consider when purchasing a laptop or desktop computer, which will assist you in making the right decision as you shop for a system for personal or business use.
It is critical that you read this post before making the decision to purchase that personal computer. We will be looking at four major factors: 1. the processor, 2. RAM, and 3. storage capacity. 4. BIOS Version and Date.
When buying a desktop or laptop computer, look for the following features:
Knowing the processor of the system you are purchasing will help you determine how fast the system will be.
To check the processor, click on the Start Button
Right-click on This PC
Left Click on Properties
This will display the processor of the system
RAM is an important consideration when purchasing a laptop or desktop computer. RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory, which allows your system to boot up and also determines the system's speed. The system's speed is determined by the amount of RAM installed.
It is important to understand the size of the storage disk. In a laptop or desktop computer, there are two types of storage disks: hard disk drives (HDD) and solid-state drives (SSD). This disk will hold all of your system files, applications, and jobs, so the larger the disc, the more storage space you have.
How Do I Perform A Hard Disk Check
Click on your Start button; left click on This PC; it will display Local (c); right click on it; and then click on Properties to see the size of the HDD or SSD.
The BIOS Version/Date:
The version and date of the Basic Input Output System (BIOS) determine the types of applications that can be installed on the computer. This also indicates when the PC was built and how long the system has been in operation. The risk increases as the year progress.
How to Determine the BIOS Version/Date:
Window Administrative Tools should be launched.
