A Silver Bullet PC is designed to Last a Long Time

Some PC's last years and years, while others seem to go out-of-date way too fast. There are a number of technical reasons explaining this difference. When it comes to value, these technical differences are very important.

A single unified PC standard simplifies issues that affect value. For example, it allows more parts interchangeability. And this makes it harder to monopolize a necessary part. It also makes feature and support issues more transparent, and easier to facilitate.

Also affecting the lifespan of the PC, is the shift in thinking where only essentials are put on the inside, while anything likely to need servicing is placed on the outside. This includes the power supply, archive drives, optical drives, etc. Updating or replacing any of these does not require servicing the main unit. Simply order the new device and plug it in.

To last a long time, a PC must also make use of reliable parts brands. Parts that have longer manufacturer warranties, and the best internal technologies available at a reasonable price. Then on top of all this it should avoid specialized technologies that have little or no value to the general marketplace, or are easily trumped by standard features once clearly assessed.

Our detail pages explain many of the arguments leading to our PC design, that cater to this philosophy.
