When deciding to buy a new computer, you should be aware of the purpose for which you are buying it, for games or for working with office documents, for photo processing or for working with 3D graphics, and so on. When the tasks are defined, it is important to choose a design and look at the quality of the materials. At the moment, the market is focused on PC and MAC computers and these are two completely different products.

Everyone has long been accustomed to the fact that after buying a new PC, it needs to be configured. Today, even shops provide such services. There are enough reasons to set up a new computer and what is called “works out of the box” is rare. The fact is that all PC brands ship with their computers not only Windows but also many preinstalled programs on it. Thus, you get an operating system with a bunch of unnecessary software that naturally affects the performance and stability of your Windows system, and therefore your computer as a whole. In addition, many pre-installed programs will stop working after the trial period and ask you to buy them. But the most important thing is to keep your computer safe, and for this, you will have to purchase antivirus software for Windows. Of course, no antivirus can guarantee you 100% security of your data, but it will help reduce the percentage of possible PC infections.

Best of all for those who have a friend among their acquaintances who can help set up a new PC. And even better, if he can accompany you at least by phone, answering questions that arise while working on a new PC. Those who do not have such an acquaintance will either have to use the not the best initial configuration of the computer from the manufacturer or contact a company that provides computer support. But, firstly, when contacting such a company, it is best to have a certain amount of money in stock, since the maximum possible invoice is issued for the simplest operations. Secondly, when contacting a PC service company, you are betting on luck, since there is no guarantee that a certified specialist with sufficient experience will come to you.

Of course, you can just buy a PC you like from your favorite store and not think about anything else, but unfortunately, many years of experience with PCs speak volumes. We are talking here about getting the most out of your computer for you for your money and a PC from a reliable manufacturer is half the battle. After all, hardware is nothing without an operating system and software, and that is why it is important to correctly configure a new PC so that you, in turn, can work effectively on it.

There have always been problems with the stability of operating systems in the Windows family. Many people explain this with a large amount of software for this platform and, accordingly, if you install a lot of programs, then Windows starts to work slower. Others attribute the drop in Windows performance to the high popularity of the platform and, in connection with this, a large number of viruses for it, which naturally leads to a deterioration in performance on all fronts. There are many more excuses why the system in one way or another begins to lose performance after the first months of use. Of course, all these theories have a right to exist, but only in part, since most of the problems lie in the originally laid down principles of the Windows operating system. In addition, Microsoft constantly releases a huge number of updates for Windows, which also cannot be installed all in a row, otherwise you risk seriously reducing the stability of your operating system.

Thus, sadly, buying a new PC and wanting to get a good product for your money, you will have to seek help from a good specialist who can help you with setting up the software, protecting against viruses, and explaining how to properly handle the PC to reduce Windows crashes.
