Weekend Discussion: How Do You Prep a New Computer

It seems absurd that someone should have to do anything at all to a new computer in order to get the “promised” performance, but it is true. Fortunately, many of us who read GBM and other tech blogs are savvy enough to figure it out. However, most folks are not.

What do you do after freshly unwrapping a new computer? What do you install, wipe, uninstall, update, set up on a schedule, etc?


By the way, on Monday I’ll be porting this post, along with all the comments, over to our forum so all the great advice is available there for searching and adding additional comments to.
