New Computer Buying Guide
If you are purchasing another Windows Computer please keep these tips in mind for the best, and fastest experience.
Apple computers are easiest as their options are limited to a few models. The information below also applies to Macs.
Memory (RAM): 8GB or 16GB or higher
Hard Drive: At least a 256GB Solid State Drive (SSD) very important that it is an SSD for fastest speed. Do not purchase anything under 256GB SSD as it will run out of space fairly quickly.
Processor: Intel Processor i3, i5, i7 or i9. The higher the number, the more expensive it will be. We prefer Intel instead of AMD processors.
Brand: Dell or Lenovo. Other brands are OK too. These are our preferred brands from experience. Check out the outlet sections as well for Refurbished products that still usually come with 1-3 year warranties and are cheaper.
Dell and Lenovo websites refurbished are just new computers returned for any reason, the company retests but can’t sell as a new product so it sells cheaper.
