Some people simply see their computer as something they own, while for others, their computer is an investment - a way for them to make money and stay connected to information - but regardless of which of these two categories you fall into yourself, one thing remains constant between the two sides: It is beneficial to know how to take good care of your computer! Even though it is relatively easy to take good care of a computer, and despite the fact that most people realize taking care of their computer is important, many people lack the proper knowledge in order to know exactly what they should do to take good care of their own computer.
Internal: One of the biggest mistakes people make is downloading software and other things to their computer that do not actually belong there; unless you know for certain that something is safe for your computer, you should never download it, as some things you download will end up causing your computer to slow down, and may even end up causing your computer to crash! External: When it comes to the care of your computer, the external care will be just as important as the internal care, as you want to make sure your computer does not get dropped or bumped around; if you have a desktop computer, keep it stored so that wires are not hanging down and putting its life in jeopardy, and if you have a laptop, make sure you store it in a safe place and transport it in a safe manner. Life: The internal and external safety of your computer will be more important than your computer's battery life (after all, you can still use your computer even if the battery is shot), but it will be nice if your battery life lasts for a long time - and the best way to achieve this is by keeping your laptop on electricity (instead of on battery) whenever you can! By making sure you do these things, you will be able to protect the life and livelihood of your computer - regardless of whether it is an investment or is simply another item you own!
