Build Your Own PC for 20,000 Pesos the Lazy and Easy Way

Although I've been acquainted with the World Wide Web through Internet shop desktop computers more than a decade ago and initially used a desktop when I started working online around 2010, I have been a notebook person then eventually a laptop fan ever since I got a hold of these below. I don't think I'll ever go back to a desktop computer soon.






I personally find it easier to type through keys on a laptop than on a desktop. Plus, laptops are handy. I can bring them anywhere I go and work even when in the province, while travelling, and anywhere else, provided there is Internet connection.


But when we needed an extra hand (in terms of computer device), more like for le husband and child, we searched for information online and dropped by numerous computer stores for an estimate. Most shops were very welcoming. Some of the popular places to scour information include PC Express, Villman, and PC Gilmore. We settled with one of the branches of the former due to an installment options available for the card we use.


So these are the raw materials:

The specs are also more expensive when you opt to choose a more updated version such as i7 instead of an i3 for the Intel processor or a more spacious hard disk space and memory. The options are endless if you're not lazy as I am (unless there are budget limits of course).  



And here are the parts when assembled:








A desktop can offer more than what a laptop can do in terms of memory, disk space, processor speed, etc. but I'd stick with my laptop for now. My little daughter loves the PC though and can spend hours watching YouTube or playing Minecraft.
