Does your current computer work? If not, and is it over 3 years old? Call around to your local computer repair shops and get an estimate on how much it might cost to fix or how much to look at it and see what it needs. If you stop and ask yourself what you use the computer for and what you plan on using it for in the next few years most of the time you can come to a simple conclusion.
If your computer works but has started to slow down maybe you need a computer tune-up. Over time computers will start to slow down from programs we install on them and also from all the programs that are running in the background. Getting a system tune up can be a cheap way of speeding up and optimizing your computer.
As Technology advances your computer will eventually become obsolete. For those of you out there running windows 98 ME or 2000 my answer to you is go buy a new computer.
If you are running XP and everything runs fine but the computer is slow check and see how much memory you have installed. If it is 256 or less you can boost your computer's speed just by buying and installing another stick of memory. Contact your local computer shop with your computer model and they will be able to tell you what kind of memory to purchase.
