Okay….It’s that time again. It’s time to bite the bullet and buy a new computer. And no…I am not trying to make a sale, I am trying to let people know that their 7 year old computer just doesn’t make the cut. Heck, a 3 year old computer almost doesn’t either. Time and time again we get customers in here that keep on investing and investing money into older computers that some people would simply throw away. And as we always recommend them not to, however some people believe that the $100 fix is a lot more affordable than the $450 new computer option. For some people (me included) $100 is easier to spend $450, but sometimes it is just not the BEST option. We rely on computers for pretty much everything. When a computer has lasted almost a decade, it’s time to give it a break, let it go to computer heaven, or maybe, computer hell 😉 The longer users take to make a change to a new computer, newer software, OS, and new terminology the harder the transition really is. Unfortunately the computer industry is constantly revolving to meet our ever demanding needs and older computers seem to fall behind quite fast. You can end up putting yourself in a real bind if you do not keep up with programs and alternatives to access your data. If you’re running software that is not Windows 7 compatible, how are you going to move files over if your computer crashes? What are you going to do when you can’t work on files that you have been working on for years? These are real life scenarios that we have to deal with on a daily basis, there’s options as long as your computer is up and running, but sometimes parts can go bad literally with the flick of a switch. If you would like to know some options please let us know, there’s ways to avoid this scenario, and make your life easier and less stressful and a new computer just might be the ticket.
