Easy as 1 2 PC Guide to buying a new computer

1 Comment

Buying a computer can be a daunting process. There is so many questions to be answered. Windows or Macintosh? Should I get AMD or Intel? Should I get the 2GB or 4GB model. Should I get the one with the flashy case or the one that’s plainer? So many questions which the sales people are quick to exploit and without ever answering many of the important ones. For many people they have already answered the first question do I get a Window’s PC or a Macintosh PC. This question is usually answered by preference, the software you want to run or your budget.

Macintosh PC’s and laptops generally cost more for pretty much the same hardware. But regardless of whether you choose to go with Windows or Macintosh there are still a number of questions that need to be addressed. This guide will deal with as many as possible and if there are any questions regarding anything I have missed I will update this guide to reflect those questions.


What would you need to do if your hard disk is failing or has failed?

This is an interesting question and one which can be either straightforward to answer or a minefield.

Do you replace the hard disk or the whole laptop or computer?

If you choose to replace the laptop or computer how much will this cost you? Anything from a few hundred pounds to over a thousand pounds depending on what you need/want and what your budget is.

Is your Windows reinstallation or recovery media on the hard disk?

Is Windows XP being phased out?

First of all, hello and welcome to Easy as 1 2 PC’s Blog.

I shall add item’s here when I get asked any questions that I feel would be best answered in detail or if there is a particular piece of news that i feel  I just gotta share with everyone.

This morning I got asked a question on Facebook that I thought would be good to start this blog with. It was asked by Bob from Bob’s Place

Bob’s question was whether or not Windows XP was being phased out in favour of Windows 7 and whether Windows XP discs were becoming harder to find?
