Buying Your First Computer

In this day and age of technology, owning a computer of your own is almost a necessity. You need a computer to do your homework, to do research and even to communicate with the rest of the world. If you have been collecting money for a while and you have finally managed to collect enough money to be able to afford your own computer, you must be excited. Computers come in many different shapes and sizes and you should be able to buy a computer to fit almost any budget. The exact kind of computer that you buy will depend entirely on the type of work that you intend on doing on the computer. If you are only buying the computer to do your home work and use some basic office packages, then you do not need to spend too much money as even the most basic of computers will work however, if you intend to play games and use the computer to watch movies, then you will need to buy a higher end, more expensive computer with a very good graphic card.

Setting it up

After you have decided on a computer that fits your needs and your budget, you will need to set it up at your home. In most cases, the store you bought the computer from will provide IT technical support in Dubai for a certain period of time which will include setting up the computer at your home.

You will need to specifically ask your IT technical support people to install a good virus guard on your computer even if that means you having to pay more and purchase it separately as this can help to protect your computer from deadly virus attacks that could corrupt all your files and software.

Buying your accessories

In addition to your computer, you will now have to purchase your accessories to go with your computer. Again, this would depend on the type of work you will be doing however, having a good set of speakers for your computer is vital. You will also benefit from having a big screen that can double up as a television for when you want to watch a movie however the bigger screen cost a little extra money and this will depend on your exact budget.

You will need to have your IT people install all the software that you need to work as it can be complicated for a non computer savvy person to set up software at a later date. You will need the basics such as Microsoft office and you may need some designing software such as Photoshop or illustrator depending on the type of work you will be doing.
