Replacing Vs Repairing a Computer

As more and more sophisticated computers find their way to the market on an almost weekly basis, there is always the need to replace a machine. While some people replace their machines every few months, others only do so when they have to. So the question remains, when is the right time to replace a computer?

Age Factor

The age of a computer is what ordinarily comes into play when we think of changing a computer system. At least that’s what the majority of us consider before replacing a computer with a new one. Well, a computer ages with time and thus the system loses its lustrous appeal and we start seeing other things like wear and tear, system failure, and a load of other "aging forces".

Before you replace a computer, you may want to consider checking to see that your computer could run on Windows 7. If it does, you’ve an option on your plate – install Windows 7. If it does not have the requirements and cannot be easily upgraded to meet the requirements, it may be time to go ahead and replace your computer.

Mechanical Factor

Many things happen to a computer with time. The keyboard keys start falling off, the shift key may be stuck, and some of the keys would abruptly stop working. However, if this is only the case, it makes money saving sense to replace the keyboard. Yes, you can replace your laptop keyboard as well. However, if your motherboard, RAM, or CPU go out, it might be time to think about a new computer.

Technology and Innovation Factor

If you do video editing and other things that require the best of video card technology, then you may have no choice but to keep up with the trend. You can save time and achieve greater work efficiency with a newer computer than with an older one. In the opposing case, however, if you only use your computer for word processing, Internet browsing, and Email, you may be able to hold on to an older computer for a little bit longer by just speeding up your pc.

Overall, it all boils down to your pocket, profession, and lifestyle. Whether you have an old dell laptop or a state-of-the-art Mac machine, it is important to remember that they all perform similar basic functions.
