If you’re thinking about buying a new PC for your workstation, the hardware and software capabilities of a PC is paramount when considering which PC to use for your business. If you see a well-respected PC model at a price that seems too good to be true – that’s probably because it is. The price you can pay for purchasing cheaper models can often be a sacrifice in the hardware and software included, which can lead to your PC being unsuitable for a networked office environment. Some of the issues listed below for you to bear in mind may seem obvious, however, it is surprising how many times they can be overlooked.
- Is this PC for work in an office or at home?
- What role will this PC serve?
- Are the tasks being completed by the PC straightforward or complex?
- What operating system do you need?
- Depending on its role and purpose you will need to select the appropriate hard drive size, ram, video card and monitor size.
- If your computer is to be part of a network, you will need to make sure it has a network card.
- What tasks do you need to perform: word processing, spreadsheet calculations, photo editing?
- At what level do you need to do the above tasks, basic or advanced? This might determine the specific application you need.
There are also many other accessories and peripherals that require some consideration such as:
- Will you need to burn/view CD’s or DVD’s?
- Will you need to be able to scan or print from this PC?
- Will you need to connect to a financial institute? You may need a modem.
- Will you need to connect more than one monitor to this PC?
