Windows installed new updatesPosted: December 27, 2014
My computer is over five years old, and runs on Windows 7. Over time the speed at which it does things has slowed to such an extent that I sometimes have to wait several minutes for it to fulfil a request, and its ability to do more than one thing at a time has become seriously impaired. I have tried to speed things up by deleting programs that I no longer use and by transferring old files to a removable, back-up hard drive … but this does not seem to have had much impact at all.
I am coming to the conclusion that I am going to have to buy a new computer … which is a great pity as there is basically nothing wrong with the one that I have. Its only failing seems to be that its processing chip can no longer cope with the increasing complexity and size of the programs that I have installed … and the recent ‘new upgrades’ seem to have been the final straw.
Luckily the post-Christmas/New Year sales will soon be upon us, and it might be a good time to think about buying a replacement computer … but therein lies another dilemma. Do I stick with a computer that runs on a Windows operating system, or do I go with Apple?
Now that is a difficult conundrum to sort out … and one that I need to seriously think about before making a purchase.
