The Question: “Is this computer worth Cleaning?” This is one of the most common questions we get and it’s really not an easy one to answer. The answer lies with the client’s needs. Here are a couple questions you can ask yourself to assist in the decision.

Ask yourself “What computer do I have?”

1) Quad core – Intel i7 or AMD Quad Core Processor with 4-8 GB of Ram
2) Dual Core – Intel i3/i5 or AMDx2 Processor with 2-4 GB of Ram
3) Single Core – Pentium 4 or an AMD with 512 MB-1 GB of Ram

Quad Core Processor computers are the latest mainstream technology and will perform multiple applications, high resolution video and demanding tasks. Like all computers they can become bogged down with Adware, Pop-up’s, Viruses and Trojans. This computer can be an ideal machine for a family with Students.

Tip: Have a rebuild by a Geek4Cheap Technician to return your computer to factory performance. Adding more Ram (when Possible) will show a noticeable difference and give you a boost when the machine has been properly cleaned.

Dual Core Processor computers can still perform great with today’s demanding programs and internet browsers. Keeping programs turned off when not in use such as Skype, Multiple Virus protectors, games, this will increase your performance. A dual core computer has all the tools to provide family and students with the tools they require when running at optimal performance.

Tip: Keep these computers running Lean and Clean and you can perform most tasks in today’s high tech world.

Single Core Processor computers are challenged to compete when running multiple programs and applications. High traffic will bog down your system and lag performance. A single core computer will be challenged and may not be up to the tasks of students.

Tip: However this is still an excellent computer to check email and surf social media.

The Conclusion

Even older computers can allow you to do Homework, Surf the Internet, Check email and Shop Online if you keep them Lean and Clean. Upgrade Ram (when Possible) for a noticeable difference and give you a boost when the computer has been properly cleaned.
