Wall Street might keep saying that the economy is booming and everything is going great, but we all know the real truth, and many people are still having to stay on a very tight budget. Most places that people stop spending when money is tight is on their computers, but for many, this is what you need to earn a living or just for an outlet to the outside world.
One of the biggest questions our readers ask us is how can they get more life out of their desktop or laptop computer. We’ve actually compiled a step by step guide on eBay to answer those questions and save you from having to spend outside of your budget. Even better, we’ve scoured for the best eBay Deals so you can truly do a full upgrade on your system for way less than a new system would cost.
So many times we only think of eBay for auctions, but they also have a great section for deals in whatever you’re looking for. For computer upgrades or anything tech related you can check them all out here. Our tech writers have found the best quality and cheapest deals for you that you are all included in the guide.
Our tech writers have also broken down everything in steps, explaining everything so it doesn’t feel so overwhelming too. You don’t have to do everything; you can try one step and see how that works and go from there. We actually used one of my desktops that I bought in 2009, and just by upping the RAM, putting in an SSD drive and graphics card made such a huge difference. It’s like having a brand new machine and we only spent $79 on the basics! Yup, I was just as shocked that we could get those types of deals on eBay deals too.
So if you’re thinking that you have to buy a new computer or laptop, check out our guide on Breathing New Life Into Your Old Computer and you may be very surprised to find out that you can hold on to it for a few more years. Especially if it has Windows 7 or Windows 8 on it as you get a free upgrade to Windows 10 so your OS software is free already! That’s a great way to start your upgrade!
Between our guide and eBay deals, you’ll have plenty of money left over to buy something you really need or just plain want.
