The best desktop upgrade scenario!

Reading time: 1 minute
Difficulty: easy, mainly for Windows XP and Vista users


The projected release of the new Windows is on 2013.
The geek community calls it Windows 8.
The current Windows operating system is Windows 7.

Based on P Cube’s service history, 95% of our customers upgrade
because their computers are slow.

Typically, we find the cause of slow computers:
• Degraded hardware.
• More computing power required by newly installed complex programs.


Popular trends in our service records:
• Windows XP users replaced their memory (RAM) and hard drives to
faster versions and upgraded to Windows 7.
• Windows Vista users only added more memory
because their computers are still reasonably fast.

The best desktop upgrade scenario:
• The hard drive has 64M cache.
• The memory is 8GB in total, and it’s clock speed is the highest the
motherboard can support.
• Windows 7 Professional 64-bit for business use to maximize
advance networking features and support for the 8GBs of memory.
Also, newer Windows versions have better and shorter ways of
handling calculations and they can more efficiently use the
advance features of your hardware. Furthermore,
a newly found security hole is actively patch by
Microsoft via updates delivered to your PC.


To buy or upgrade?

This question can be answered by asking yourself the following three questions:
1. What is my budget?
2. How much faster will my computer be after the new hardware
and software is installed?
3. Is the cost of the upgrade much less than buying a totally new computer?

Hopefully, this news brief offers insight into when and how to upgrade your computer.

As always, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to call or email us.
