Generally users who don't pay close attention in time to buy computers, primarily over the internet, and are surprised when you connect the equipment. When the price is reduced, usually, It is because the preinstalled operating system is Linux, that is free. But not always users are able to migrate officially for this system. In this case, You will spend more money to format the computer, and install another operating system.

When you buy the computer in a physical store in your city, to complain just to get to the counter and ask the seller. But if you bought over the internet will go through a long process of customer service, We will review your contact to the sectors above until you actually receive a response convinced and a positive sign.

To open your computer will require the violation of these seals and stamps. This will result in immediate loss of warranty, automatic. Some companies provide an authorization for the opening of the Cabinet, but are rare exceptions. In addition, There are some companies that remove the guarantee to the computer if it is formatted. Before you ask me, I will soon reply: This happens in Brazil. Therefore, always keep this information up to date with the company that sold you your computer.

7- Not all computer peripherals are good quality as the description can tell.

You can see a beautiful written description of computer, but have a huge disappointment to see it physically. There are wide variations of tags for a given hardware model, and if your computer had a low cost, probably, a weaker mark was used. Pay close attention in this part, because if you repent will still have a few days to go back is to acquire and replace the product or even return it.

8- If your computer comes with factory virus, your license will not last forever.

It's amazing how some people believe that the antivirus will last forever, even more when it comes to one that came from the factory. These softwares, in General, last for 30, 60, 90, 120 or 365 days. After this period, You will be required to renew the original license to continue enjoying the protection. If you are a layman user, pay close attention on that information when purchasing your computer because, for sure, an extra fee has been added to the computer's value to cover the use of anti-virus software.

9- If you threw away the boxes (packaging) where your computer came deposited, have you ever lost your warranty.

It is very common to find people who play out packs. If you've done this, be very careful. When buying a new computer, NEVER throw away packaging. They are your guarantee! When you need to replace your computer or send it to the technical assistance through the security, the company that sold the product prompts the original packaging and proof of purchase. If you do not have the packaging will not be able to prove where it came from the computer. Therefore, It is an important alert to all.

10- If you bought your computer only to enter the “Orkut and MSN”, for sure, threw money away.

Today how many and how many people use the computer only and exclusively for “Orkut and MSN”. Not so much the fact of being social networks, but by the neglect with the micro. A computer is able to perform so many tasks that cannot be used solely for a purpose like this. There are now Netbooks that are cheap and very good for Web surfing. If you are not going to work with your computer and want it just for “play”, Please, look for something cheaper and has fewer features. Not half-hearted paying a lot for a tool that can offer you a lot if you will only use the minimum possible resources. It would be a real loss of investment.
