Net Books are a Huge Problem in 2020! One of the things I’ve run into frequently is problems with netbooks because the customer didn’t know that’s what they bought.
Netbooks have SD cards with 32GB or 64GB’s but no hard drive. Many of the customers buying a netbook have no idea it’s not a PC.
When they think it’s a computer they put stuff on it and then boom they are out of space and it crashes. Now if they knew what they were buying then they would buy an SD Card for additional storage but they don’t know.
Sale Associates Don’t Always Know What Their Selling
Netbooks are a disaster, I’m a professional tech and I can tell you the majority of people think they can do more than just go online. The combination of marketing, deceptive sales people and people wanting to get the best deal for the money causes a lot of headaches for folks depending on having a computer that works.
Netbooks are designed for one purpose and they don’t even do that
well, and that’s to go online. The reason they don’t do that well is
because they don’t have much memory so they are slow out of the box but
that’s just the beginning.
Since they are designed to use online the memory gets filled with cookies and then they get slower and slower.
No matter what somebody thinks it’s important to have additional storage such as a hard drive or SD card. Sooner or later you need storage because who knows what the future holds.
Netbooks Can Be A Good Choice
Net Books are a Huge Problem but not If Set Up and Used for their Intended Purpose. Set up right means purchasing an SD Card at the time of purchase of the netbook. But here’s the problem the consumer thinks it’s a computer they start comparing pricing against a real computer and of course the the real one costs more.
More of society is computer illiterate than we like to believe and that’s what the marketers are counting on. They know that an average person doesn’t know specs or understand them. But that’s what matters most, when making a purchase of a computer.
Get More Value for The Same Money
Computers Depreciate more Than Anything! Seriously computers depreciate about 50 to 75 percent in the first 45 days. I know it sounds crazy but just go on Amazon and compare exact models new against used and you will see extreme price differences. Now I’m not talking about a new model release, the exact same computer models can be on the market for years unlike a car with a new model every year.
Go to Amazon or Ebay and buy a late model computer from a reputable seller and you will get more for your money.
How Do I Know What To Buy
In 2020 I recommend the minimum specs be as follows: 8GB of RAM with a Minimum 250GB Hard Drive, with an Intel Processor. If your a gamer you need an upgraded video card but that can get costly.
