A guide PC buying: there are many points to consider before you choose your new PC.
When you start to think about buying a new family computer the best advice to give it to sit down and think about what it is you want. Don't go rushing out to the shops with your credit card ready to buy the first thing you see.
There are many points to consider before you choose your new PC: 1. How much are you willing to spend? 2. Are you willing to spend a little more for what you want or is your budget strict? 3. What do you need the computer for? 4. What packages/specifications do you need? (accompanies answer 3) 5. What size screen do you want/need? 6. Will the PC be used for work? 7. Do you need a new printer also? 8. Find out the best places to get good advice - ask friends and see who they recommend. 9. Make sure that the rep in the shop or showroom knows what they are talking about. Subtly test him/her on questions you know the answers to or make mistakes and see if they correct you. If you are unsure, ask to speak to a trained sales rep. 10. Go thorough slowly exactly what is included in the deal you are considering. Many customers believe that have found a bargain only to find that the monitor wasn't included. 11. Take full details of any helpline numbers or contact addresses incase anything goes wrong with your PC. 12. Shop around. Compare prices with rival shops and try to price match with them (if you see a lower price for the same machine ask if the more expensive shop will price match). 13. If there is a friend also looking for a new PC take him along to the shops. If you both find PC's in the same shop ask for a discount - there's no harm in asking and you could be a few hundred pounds better off. 14. Make sure the company is reputable. If it is a new shop ask around to see if anyone has had any problems with them. 15. If you are buying other items in the shop (i.e. printer, paper, software, cartridges, scanner etc) ask for some sort of discount. If they don't oblige go somewhere else.
What will you use it for?
Think about this and list your answers - this is crucial to know before you buy the right computer. If you want to play good graphic games you will need a good, fast computer with lots of hard disk and a fast processor. If you intend to use the PC for work you again need a good reliable PC.
When buying the machine do ask the salesman what packages come with it. Many throw in children's games and learning tools.
If you intend to use the PC for work and will be using it for long periods it is a good idea getting the biggest size screen you can afford. 17/19 inch is fine. Using a smaller screen will inevitable bring constant eyestrain and perhaps headaches for the user: it is worth paying a few pounds/dollars more.
Haggling with the sales reps
All salespeople make commission on what they sell. They want your sale. Make sure that you get a good deal. If things aren't going as you planned or the rep won't haggle with you start to walk away. Seeing a potential commission walk out the door will soon have the salesman changing his mind. When discussing the free packages that come with it make sure you get a good deal with the rep. If you have one or two of the free software packages, barter a lower price or try and get different packages instead of the ones you already have.
Most companies charge for delivery or set up of your machine. You don't have to pay this. It often works out cheaper if you can hire a bigger car or van and go and collect it yourself (find out where the depot is before you commit yourself to doing this). Unless you are a complete beginner at computers and haven't a clue ask a friend to help you set up the machine. You'll learn more by doing it yourself and your friend won't charge you!
Brides typically worry about every single detail when it comes to their wedding. The cake, the invitations, the dress, and their shoes all have to be perfect. There is so much pressure on a bride today to create the perfect event that often each bride will obsess unnecessarily on the small things as well. When it comes to wedding shoes, there should be no obsessing. Wedding shoes are such a minor part of the entire wedding event that brides should feel no pressure at all when it comes to their shoes. While bridal stores may make it seem like the shoes are part of the dress, the truth is that most people never even see your shoes when you have a long skirted dress with a train. So, don't fret over choosing your shoes and use these tips while shopping.
Comfort Is Important Without argue, the most important factor in choosing wedding shoes is comfort. You want your wedding day to be one where you can focus on your partner, your guests, and the event in general. You certainly don't want to worry about getting a horrible blister from your shoes. Many brides choose the wrong shoes and are miserable throughout the ceremony. They typically take their shoes off at the reception, which is great if your reception is inside. If you have one outside however, you may be stuck in those horrible shoes. Brides today are being smart about their wedding shoes. They are option for ballet shoes or for white tennis shoes instead of heels. Some brides even buy white house slippers for their big day. You can always choose to wear those fancy heels for the ceremony and then change right into your comfortable white shoes for the after party. There is no reason you should not be able to dance the night away on your wedding day so choose a great pair of comfortable shoes, no matter what style they are. Just be sure they are a pastel color so they won't steal your show.
Style Counts - But Not Much Many brides obsess about the style of their bridal shoes. The truth is that unless you are wearing a short dress, most people will have no idea what type of shoes you have on underneath. If you are someone who only feels as fancy as your shoes however, you might want the dressiest pair around. But, be realistic and know that you should not worry as much about style as you should about comfort. When you are planning a wedding there are a million things to focus on at length. Don't let your shoes be one of them!
Inexpensive Doesn't Mean Ugly Today's weddings are costing an average of $6000 to $25,000 each. At these expensive prices, there are some things that you should be thrifty on. While you should never buy cheap wedding shoes that are uncomfortable, you should not run out and buy a pair that costs $500 either. Remember that you will only be wearing these shoes once. Most brides save their wedding shoes after their big day because they never want to wear them again. Besides, there are not many women brave enough to wear white shoes on any other occasion than their own wedding. Just because they are inexpensive does not mean they are not comfortable and appropriate. So, save your father a buck or two and don't spend a bundle on your wedding shoes.
So, as you are choosing your wedding shoes, keep these things in mind. Comfort comes first! You should do whatever it takes to stay comfortable during your wedding day. If you stay comfortable, you will have much more fun. If you force yourself into pretty but uncomfortable shoes, you will likely be miserable. Remember that you can really wear whatever you want under that long dress and no one will likely know any different. So, don't focus too much on style and choose something that feels great. If you want to keep with the style for the garter removal, consider buying a pair of inexpensive heels for that part of the party. Lastly, be sure to keep money in perspective when shopping. It is your wedding, and you are entitled to have a lavish affair, but don't be unrealistic about it all.
