Technology isn’t meant to last forever. So, when your trusty computer starts to glitch and eventually break down due to defective hardware, you’ll most likely have two questions running in your head: (1) Do I buy one of those handy and affordable laptops? Or (2) Do I find quality wholesale computer parts and fix my old PC? And since Google’s new Samsung Chromebook is creating quite a buzz, you may be curious if it’s a legitimate replacement solution. Well, to help you decide whether you should buy replacement parts and fix your old PC or invest in say, the new Chromebook; we’ve gone ahead and broken down four factors to consider before choosing one option or the over.

Parts

The Chromebook boasts an 11.6” (1366×768) display, USB 2.0 & 3.0 ports, a fan-free ARM-based processor and 2GB of RAM, which are all you’re ever going to get. Hence, if the Chromebook’s specs are less than what you require, you may want to start working on your old PC. From its CPU components to its power supply, you can choose the parts that you need to make your desktop faster and efficient.

Price

Priced at $249, it’s no wonder that the Chromebook is noted for its value. However, what if all your PC needs to return to life is a new motherboard for $100 or a simple update of drivers for your hardware? Think about your budget, your computer’s problem and determine whether buying a laptop is better or fixing your PC with all your stored files is more practical.

Purpose

If you’re a big fan of social networking, internet surfing and cloud computing in general, the Chromebook is right for you. But, if you need a computer for gaming, video/photo editing, business or office-tasks, it’s a smarter choice to simply replace the damaged component of your PC.

Personalization

To put a little bit of you in your Chromebook, you can buy laptop skins, stickers, or maybe even carry it in a stylish case or sleeve. But for a higher level of customization, sticking with your old PC is a good idea, because you can add equipment that specifically suits your needs.

Now that you know your options, it’s easier for you to decide whether you’ll move on with the sleek, trendy Chromebook or hang on to your loyal desktop computer by reviving it with a new Lucent fan tray or Dell motherboard from a leading supplier like Code Micro. Whatever you decide, make sure that your needs come first, wants second and luxuries last.
