When you plan on buying a new computer, the most important decision you will have to make is how good your Processor is for the work you have in mind. You will have to consider its speed, multitasking abilities and its performance as well as your budget when deciding on the Processor because no matter what else you add to your computer,   unless your Central Processing Unit can offer you quality service it will not be of much use to you.

Whether you buy a Laptop   or a Netbook, first check what kind of processor it has. The two most popular processors in the market are Intel and AMD with Intel leading the market at present. The tasks you intend performing will also have an impact on the CPU and if they involve lots of 3D graphics and a large cache to diminish memory load, your best option is an Intel Core i7 while the AMD   Phenom Line   is said to be best among their processors.

Buying a computer today is not as uncomplicated as it used to be earlier because of the wide variety available. The choices are many and you get to choose from desktops, laptops, Notebooks, Netbooks and iTablets which can be very confusing for the uninitiated.  If you prefer a Laptop computer or the smaller, lighter Netbook Computer you might be thinking of their portability features.  The latter has more battery life but less processing power even though its more than adequate for simple tasks such as word processing,  and web browsing. Being small in size the Netbook computer is the ultimate device for portability.

The Laptop Computer which is also known as the Notebook is also portable but   bigger than the Netbook  while having more processing power similar to that of the Desktop. It has its own screen and built in keyboard and track pad which replaces the mouse.   The modern laptop computer also has exciting new features such Blue Ray disc players, and surround sound among others provided you’re prepared to dole out a considerable amount of money.

The other component of importance is the Motherboard which provides a platform for the smaller components in a computer to be connected to each other. Most new computers have the motherboard as well as RAM and the Graphics Card built into the machine making it possible for manufacturers to design smaller motherboards. The earlier ones had to be large in size due to the presence of multiple ports to connect peripheral devices apart from the larger size of the CPU as well as the RAM, Video card and Graphics Card.

The vast improvement in RAM has also made a considerable difference to the overall performance of the computer because unless there is quality RAM the CPU will not provide a smooth performance no matter how fast it is. The new type of motherboard is capable of supporting up to 8 GB RAM which enables the processor to work really fast. Similarly, a Graphics Card with high capacity provides high quality imaging. But computers   that have built in Graphics do not have more than 8 megabytes which makes it imperative for those working with graphics to use an external Graphics card through a slot in the motherboard.
