If you plan to do business online with one of the many jobs from a home based business available on the internet, then you will want to make sure your computer is in line with its duties.
Although it is possible to survive on the Pentium 1, with today’s prices there is no reason to do so. Pentium 4 computers and equivalent AMD computers have experienced huge price reductions.
I have to admit, I still use an Intel Celeron 766 Mh computer but I upgraded the ram to 384 Mb and the hard drive to 80 Gb. Also a high-speed internet connection is a must. I am connected to the internet from 08.00 to 02.00 Am (18 Hours) continuously every day. This means that my security including the firewall must be set correctly and functioning. But that’s another article for another time.
What we do in this world still needs a capital. But if we talk about working at home, the main capital you need is an internet connection. Why do you need an internet connection? The answer is because the development of a business today has turned to the world of the internet. The world of the internet is no longer an ‘alternative world’ but has become a world that allows you to earn income. Because of the mobility lifestyle, gadget technology also helps expand links (networks) there is. Online business opportunities are very broad to outside the city, outside the island, even abroad.
Why do you need a powerful computer for your work from a home internet business? Before I upgraded from a Pentium MMX 233 Mh computer, I spent more time booting from freezing and cleaning my hard drive than working on the internet from a home based business. Yes, I started more than 5 years ago using the Pentium MMX 233 with only 160 Mb of RAM and a 3 Gb hard drive, proving that it is possible to build a work from an internet business at home on a slow old computer. But why are you. I upgraded to a Celeron 766 Mh computer that was used with 256 Mb of RAM for $ 200 Canada. And here in Canada you can buy Pentium 4 or AMD equivalent for only $ 400- $ 500.
I recommend the following main features when searching for your work from a home business computer.
1. Pentium 4 or AMD Equivalent.
2. 256 Mb minimum RAM. 512 Mb is better.
3. 80 Gb hard drive or better
4. Ethernet for high-speed internet connection.
Your video card is less important unless you plan to play games on your work from a home business computer. Cheaper computers come with onboard videos that are fine for business purposes.
Try to get a monitor at least 17 inches. Get an LCD monitor if you can afford it. This will save all types of desk space giving you more room to work.
This is my recommendation for your work from a home internet business computer based on my past experience with my own work from a home internet business. They are just guidelines. Even you can spend thousands of dollars more than I suggest here. Don’t we all want to have an AMD 64 computer with 2GB RAM Psychology Articles, a dual 200GB that invades the hard drive and a 21-inch LCD monitor!
