Selecting a Desktop Computer
Selecting a good desktop computer can be a daunting task. Not because thereís a shortage of outstanding desktop PCs on the market. In fact, the opposite is true. The list of high-quality personal computers could fill a phone book Ė eMachines, Gateway, Cybertron, HP/Compaq, Visionman, iBuypower and their various models, to name just a few. For instance, are you searching for a media center personal computer? Are you looking for a desktop computer that your kids can use for schoolwork? Maybe youíre operating a home business and you need a couple of desktop computers that can take care of all your administrative and networking demands. Some folks buy a desktop pc system as a spare - a backup in case the primary desktop PC is on the fritz. And many first-time desktop computer buyers are swayed by the sexiest ads and all the bells and whistles. While we believe that nearly everyone would benefit by owning a desktop, itís a good idea to take a step back and decide exactly what youíre going to do with the desktop PC once you buy it. That way you avoid purchasing a computer system thatís way too advanced for your needs, or conversely one thatís ill equipped to meet your demands.
