Upgrading Your Computer

A PC isn’t just for Christmas, it’s for life. You’ll want to make sure that your computer lasts for as long as possible because, let’s be honest, these things are expensive and you can’t afford to be buying a new one before the current machine is out of its warranty period.

In this appendix, I’ll talk you through not only the options for upgrading your copy of Windows 8 and its features, but also upgrading your entire PC—and even buying a new one. It’s most likely you’ll get Windows 8 with a new computer because it is the cheapest way to buy a copy of the operating system.
