Confused by all the computer models available today? Ultimately, the right one for you depends on your unique business needs, brand preference and budget.
Some of the latest PCs come with fast processors, 56 Kbps modems, 19-inch monitors, 36X CD-ROM drives and more. You'll pay top dollar for these features, so choose a model that only has the capabilities you require.
Take specialized needs into consideration. For instance, if your home office is cramped, look into buying one of the new space-saving LCD monitors. Likewise, if Internet access and e-mail are crucial to your business, buy the fastest modem you can afford.
It's also a good idea to buy models that come bundled with business software like office suites and financial management programs. Don't go for consumer models with unnecessary video and audio cards, speakers and multimedia software. Finally, pay close attention to the type of warranty and support offered, and consider purchasing extended service.
