The process of determining your personal computer memory needs may seem like a simple task at first: If you have a small business you do not need a lot of memory and if you have a larger business you will probably need more memory than the average joe, right? Well, as it turns out, that is not always the case.
Generally speaking, the amount of memory a small business personal computer may need is dependent on what kind of use the small business owner wants out of the computer. The memory is usually eaten up by the needs of various programs and functions. Sometimes computer speed is a factor: if a business owner realizes the computer is running slow or video playback is inconsistent, then more memory may be the solution.
One of the first things to consider is what will the computers be used for the most in the context of the small business. If a small business uses a lot of streaming video and audio programs, then more memory could possibly help. But, if a small business is just doing run of the mill work on personal computers, then odds are more memory will not be necessary. That is, unless the small business has a larger than average employee base, then more memory may be useful, especially if the business is rapidly expanding. One thing is for sure, as the technological capabilities and complexity of personal computers rises, as will the need for memory.
The easiest way to figure out the memory needs of a small business personal computer is to make a list of what programs the business will use the most, and which programs a small business expects will improve with more memory capacity. When the list is shown to a professional computer expert, they can inform you whether or not more memory will actually help. One thing to keep in mind is how much file management a small business is doing. If the nature of the small business requires massive amounts of record keeping, then more memory is probably a good idea. The key factor is business size: How many personal computers are being used? How much business is the small business actually getting? and Does the current memory size seem to be causing any problems?
The common thought among many computer users is that a person can never have enough memory on their computer. This is especially true when considering how popular memory-eating video games, high-tech imaging and video software and gigantic libraries of movies and music have become. Although most small businesses have no use for such programs, some may, and will therefore need more memory. After all, it may just give people something to do during their lunch breaks and lift morale in the process. Usually about 16 Mega Bytes of memory will work for most personal computers, but in many cases 32 is the most ideal.
