Tips To Buy a New Computer

Here are our tips to help you get a new computer. Whether you prefer a PC or a Mac, you only need to follow a few points.

Processor: we recommend Intel Core or AMD Ryzen. An Intel Core i5 will do a great job with all the typical applications; an Intel Core i7 is faster and more expensive. If you need to save money, the Intel Core i3 will work fine with most of the applications. Here is a list with more details: CPU Hierarchy 2019 – A Comparison of AMD and Intel Processors

Memory: we strongly recommend at least 8 GB of RAM. All common applications will run smoothly if your computer has 8 GB or more.

Storage: The old HDD do a good job, but for this one too, we also strongly recommend opting for the new SSD technology. The Hard Disk Drive is slow when compared to the Solid State Drive used to save your files. Also, SSD is safer and more reliable. The amount of space you will need depends on how much data you have. At least 128 GB if you have just a few files, but 256 GB if you want to be safe and prepared for the future. A few people have many photos and videos and will need 512 GB.

To sum up: A computer with processor Intel Core i5, 8 GB RAM, and 256 GB SSD storage will work great for everybody running the most common applications.

Gamers and Video Editors: You will need a computer with a powerful GPU. AMD and NVidia have the best graphics processor units.

Chromebooks: The new laptops powered by Google Chrome OS are a great bet for those looking for simplicity, reliability, a secure system, and only need a web browser to get the job done.

Additional tip: Make sure to set up your new computer correctly to keep it safe from hackers, fast, and healthy. Security is the first thing you should employ. And don’t forget to keep your backup updated.
