Do You Need A New Computer?
Is your computer obsolete? A few years ago I saw a cartoon of a guy proudly driving home with his brand new state-of-the-art 386 computer in the back seat. In the background was a huge billboard advertising the 486. The message: his computer was obsolete before he even got it home.

Technology is always changing... so how do you know when it really is time to buy a new computer? With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy, "You Might Need To Buy A New Computer If..."

How to Buy a Computer
The good news is that computer prices tend to go down, while the computing power you get for your money goes up. I don't recommend used computers for anyone, because the rate of change of technology will render most systems nearly obsolete within three years.

So if you're wondering what kind of computer, monitor, hard drive, memory, and operating system to get... here are my recommendations for a new computer...

Netbook: Enough Computer For You?
Maybe you've been thinking about a netbook for a student, or for business travel. They are cheaper and easier to carry around, but can they do everything the larger laptops do? Find out if a netbook can replace your standard laptop, and which features are typically lacking on the minis.

Is a netbook the right choice for you. Get the scoop, along with my reviews of netbook computers...

Free Anti-Spam Tools
A few years ago, spam was just a pain to deal with. But as the popularity of the Internet grows spam is becoming more of a threat than a bother. Today, spam is used by cyber criminals to transmit spyware, trojans, worms and viruses to new hosts.

Fortunately, there are many ways you can combat both the annoying and malicious varieties of spam, with free anti-spam tools and techniques...

Which DVR is Best?
The time has come to take over your television. Using a DVR, you can record your favorite shows, pause and rewind during viewing, and even skip the commercials. You want a DVR like your friends, but you're not sure how to go about it.

Should you get a TiVo, a store-bought DVR, or the DVR service offered by your TV provider? Read on for the pros and cons of each...

Solid State Hard Drives
A solid state hard drive, or SSD, is the next revolution in computer hard drive technology. These drives have no moving parts, and will eventually replace the standard hard drive that uses a spindle and platter. There are significant advantages to using an SSD, but two important factors are currently keeping the SSD from taking over the hard drive market for laptop and desktop computers.

Read on to learn the advantages and disadvantages of using a solid state hard drive...
