Buying a computer – buy what you need.

If you are in the market for a new computer make sure you buy want you need. That means a) if you see a PC advertised at $399, don’t spend an extra $500 on extras that you don’t need, as the NY Times points out.
The NY Times article reads in part, Buying the right amount of technology can take resourcefulness, said Rich Jacobs, the owner of CompuDoc Computer Services in Millburn, N.J., who works with consumers and small businesses in the suburbs. “Everybody reads the Dell ads at $399 and $499, thinking it’s real,” he said. “It’s not.” Buying monitors, warranties, network equipment and other extras that make computers useful raises the price significantly. Careful shopping can keep costs down.
However, make sure you do not have so little technology that your business can not grow.
