Remember how your computer was when you first bought it? Fast, efficient, reliable? Now it’s slow and almost unresponsive? Do you want to know why? There are a few things you can do. Is your processor able to do what you need? Nowadays in the world of I5s and I7s, and all the different terms being tossed about how do you know? For starters, in today’s world of computing, even if you’re the casual surfer who only does Facebook, and simple things, you still want some snap to your computer. In my professional/personal opinion, from seeing so many units in my lifetime, a DUAL CORE processor is the lease you can do for your computer. Let’s see what your computer has. Click the start button on your windows based PC (my apologies mac users) and you’ll see my computer, or computer, or you can right click the computer icon on your desktop and go to properties. You want to get to the system info screen. When you do, you’ll see a screen that says “View Basic Information about Your Computer”. On this screen, you’ll see your Windows version, Manufacturer Info, Rating, Processor, RAM, the system type, and a few other little tidbits of info. Simply type the info from it in google, and learn about your processor. This is the mind of the computer, like mom or dad dealing out commands to kids in the house and them doing the tasks, the parent would be the brain, the instructions would be the data and the kids carrying them out would be the other parts of the computer. Faster brain, faster thoughts, faster reactions.
Check back for Part 2 where we will get into the other components, such as hard drives, that make up your speed, performance, and how to check them out.
