Unfortunately, old computers are more prone to viruses; as new technology develops, companies begin to focus on blocking virus on the most current software. This leaves older devices prone to attack from malware and viruses which can become costly if you don’t know how to fix them.

Sometimes a computer can’t keep up with your needs anymore or the functions of new programs. If you find your Computer is struggling to use programs like PhotoShop; it may be worth looking for something more powerful.
