“We’ve been living in the smartphone and tablet world for about seven years now and have devices with gorgeous screens processing power that rivals high-end PCs from a few years ago and more features than a Swiss army knife, but their battery still barely makes it through the day and performance falls as you install more apps.”

Is Building A PC Right For You?
Quite often I am asked to build a computer for someone, and the very first question out of my mouth is, “what do you plan to do with it.” It lays a solid cornerstone of wants, needs, and expectations. I love custom built machines, I like that the person who built it knows the machines, I love the customization, and mostly I love the raw power you can get. However, sometimes a prebuilt machine is better for the end user. When a business asks for a machine it is almost always better for have a prebuilt Dell or HP, when a home user who just wants to read email, watch Netflix, and browse the internet, a prebuilt is probably better for you. Why you may ask? Warranty. The warranties that come with Dell and HP make it worth it, when you have a hardware issue they will take care of it, sometimes they will even take care of software issues. Now, if you want to play games hardcore…. You might be better having a customer built machine.
