Recently I helped my sister with a new computer. Her previous one was typical low-end desktop machine that you would find in any of the big stores. As such, it was bulky and with time had become very noisy. So when I took the “assignment” to find a new one I was looking for something configurable, smaller, with a decent value for money and something my sister would perceive as “new”.
I have previously built a few desktop machines for myself (with performance in mind rather than low price), but that has also taught me the possible hassle with ordering motherboard, CPU, RAM and so on separately if the machine doesn’t boot up when you’re done. I wanted to avoid those kind of warranty issues where I have to prove to the store which of the components that is faulty and that I didn’t cause the malfunctioning. I also found it frustrating when looking through the assortment range of the on-line stores I use to buy from – a surprisingly large number of machines still have HDD’s as their only drive, many of them include very little RAM and some still have USB 2.0 ports (in addition to some USB 3.0 ports). The latter is more of an annoyance than a big problem, but I still cannot understand why on earth you would put USB 2.0 ports in a new machine today, are they really that much cheaper?
