Top-line PC, shelf life.

Top-line PC, shelf life. Posted on julho 19, 2017

Players aficionados for high quality graphics live arguing whether it’s worth investing in a console or a robust computer for gaming. Of course, PC advocates have favorable arguments due to annual hardware innovations.
However, in this kind of situation there are always questions about the duration of a PC gamer, since the games become more modern and require more performance every year. The parts have limitations and inevitably will not deliver the same performance after a while.
That’s the kind of thing that doesn’t affect the audience that’s betting on video games. Such appliances are designed to rotate the titles without the player having to worry about compatibility or graph adjustments.
Already the staff betting on the computer has some drawbacks: the high price of a top-of-line machine, the fall in overall performance of the equipment over the years and the need for graphical quality adjustments.
These are some of the points that brake many gamers at the time of acquiring a PC for games. The uncertainty of defining the durability of the machine is something that always makes the consumer concerned. But, after all, what is the shelf life of a top-line gamer PC?
It is very difficult to measure the exact time of a computer’s lifetime, since it depends on a number of factors. Firstly, we have the question of usability, which leads us to question what tasks will be carried out on the machine. The greater the diversity of activities, the greater the time of use, which inevitably causes a wear to all components.
Then we have to think of the quality of the pieces. There is no specific definition for a “top-of-line PC”, even more given the quantity of brands and models. However, it is general knowledge that, as well as in any product segment, there are more premium and more modest brands, which develop components with different patterns. Normally, PCs have a better performance than laptops. They last longer, they have capacity for larger and more potent hardware equipment and are not so hard to customize. Any person can, with basic knowledge and some tips, assemble a very potent computer, and go by updating it gradually. It is possible to buy a good video card, swap with the time pass, upgrade to RAM, etc. On laptops, that’s a little more complicated. Soon, for those who seek performance and also long-term performance, they are certainly better traditional computers.
It’s an unfair comparison. Obviously, on laptops you can also connect a monitor and play on a big screen. But this is not the most common. The normal is to use only your display, which in the most traditional models is not the 15.6 inches. On the desktops, on the other hand, you can use screens of various sizes. In terms of quality, they are equivalent, because there are many notebooks with screens with great resolutions. However, it is easier to find a large Full HD monitor and connect it to your desktop. For those who want to play with big screen, like it was a video game on TV, the traditional PC is better.
As analyzed in performance, the PC is much easier to open and modify. And, obviously, it also happens in time to do a maintenance. Fixing a piece, and even possibly replacing it, is much easier (and inexpensive) than doing this on the laptop. Not to mention that the lifetime of the product is usually larger. After all, with the laptop there are more risks than with the desktop – if you go out all the time with it. It’s possible that you hit him somewhere, drop it, etc. Therefore, desktops are safer options, and with more independent and friendly hardware to repair.


Gamers, tell me how long do you have your PC’s and notbooks?
