Buying A Computer For Your eBay Wholesale DVD Business – What Do I Need?

09 November 2008

If you are serious about starting a brand new web based company out of your own home, you are going to have to make sure you have the proper tools in which to do your job right. You'll need a high speed Internet connection and a basic knowledge of how eBay works. In addition, you might need a new computer to take advantage of some of the latest technologies available on the Internet. Let's take a quick look at a few things you should include in your new computer to make the most out of your web based business.

While most new computers come with an Ethernet card preinstalled, you should make double sure that your computer has one. An Ethernet card is what allows your computer to connect to a high speed connection. Back in the old days, people used dial up modems to connect to the Internet, but today, things are moving much faster and an Ethernet card is mandatory to get on the information super highway. If you recently bought a new computer and it doesn't have an Ethernet card installed, don't worry, a brand new Ethernet card only costs a few dollars and installation only takes a minute.

Since the business you are going to be running is based on the Internet, you are going to be spending a lot of time surfing back and forth between dozens of websites. In most cases, this is a worry free activity, but once in a while, you may come into contact with a computer virus or some adware or malware. To counteract these Internet baddies, you are going to need the latest anti virus software installed on your machine. Depending on how much you pay for your computer, you may have no anti virus software preinstalled or you may have just a trial version of one or two products. The brand doesn't matter really; what matters is that your computer is protected at all times, so be sure you invest in some if you don't already have it.

If you purchase a brand new Mac computer, your speakers come with your new computer, but if you are buying a PC, you will have to buy them separately. Depending on how much you plan to use audio or video in your store, you may only need a basic $15-20 dollar pair; however, if you plan on using a lot of new technology in your store, you might want to splurge and get a good set.

Finally, you want to make sure that your new computer has a video card installed. Since the Internet is moving faster and faster towards more video, it only makes sense that more and more businesses are going to be using video to sell their products. Video runs smoother and faster when you have a good video card installed on your computer.

Getting a new computer can be expensive, but if you are serious about making a living off of your new Internet based business, you should consider this to be a good investment.
