Shopping for PCs? — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
If you can’t call a purchasing manager to acquire new computers for your staff, here’s how to take charge. Buy a machine that’s easy to upgrade and offers a range of expansion options. Confirm that the PC has extra slots for RAM, extra slots for add-in cards (such as “ISA” and “PCI” slots) and at least one USB port to add more external devices. Don’t feel you must spend top dollar for the latest processor unless you’ll use the computer for high-level image-editing or design. Otherwise, save money by choosing Intel Pentium II and AMD K6-2.
