It is very common to hear a customer ask should he buy a new computer or fix the aging slow problematic notebook, desktop, laptop computer.
The simple answer is this really depend on your circumstances. If your Mac or PC is under 3 years old and you are not using it more intensively then when you first bought it then upgrading your RAM memory and some windows or registry tune up is most likely all that is needed.
It is a good computer pc practice to remove some software that might have been installed over time and that is no longer required. Some anti-virus packages do slow down computers because of all the different components that are installed and use a lot of memory. If you have less than 1GB of RAM then it is well worth upgrading to at least 1GB or more for better performance instead of bringing to sim lim, funan or other computer shops for overkill changing of parts.
If you are only using your computer for browsing the Internet and checking emails, a 3-5 year old computer will most likely be fine with at least 1GB of RAM and a tune-up. However, if you are demanding more from your Mac or PC than it would be time to consider a new PC computer system (Allin1, desktop or notebook).
