The Nerd Side Of Life

Three Essential Pieces of Technology Every Nerd Needs

Nerds are the type of people whose lives are always intertwined with technology. Whether it’s a television, a stereo system, a gaming console or a computer, they thrive off of tech. If you’re someone who holds a strong affinity for technology, here are the most important ones you should have.

The most obvious piece of technology any nerd needs is a computer. In fact, computers are now considered to be a necessity of life. It is very difficult to live without one. While most people opt to get a basic desktop or laptop, nerds may be more willing to take things to the next level. Rather than going to a store and purchasing a computer outright, building a custom computer may seem more tempting. A computer made in your own image has become a common trend as of late. You have total freedom on the customization aspects. You get to choose how much RAM and storage it will have, the type of graphics card, the casing and even the motherboard.

However, the price of what you’re building will vary based on a few factors. The first factor includes whether or not it is a desktop or laptop. If you decide to go with the latter, be prepared to invest a lot of money into it. Laptops are considerably more expensive to build from scratch than desktops. The internal components usually cost more. Unlike desktops, the hardware for laptops needs to be made more compact. Desktops are usually the better option due to the overall cost being lower, but the choice is yours.
