  • Processor

    The processor is the main-chip of the computer that is responsible for carrying out all the tasks. It tells all the other components what to do, depending on the instructions from the software on the computer.

    A core i3 processor is adequate for light web browsing and emails. If you intend on opening multiple tabs while browsing, streaming video and using Office, an i5 processor would be preferable. Heavy duty gaming and productivity applications would require atleast an i5, and can be pushed up to an i7 to maximise performance. A 4 core i7 is the best option for heavy multitasking and professional productivity.

  • RAM

    It stands for Random Access Memory. RAM can store small amounts of data at extremely high speeds. RAM does not boost performance directly, but more memory always helps multitasking to work better.

    4GB of RAM is adequate for lightweight users, whereas 8GB is required by most of the users using the device for work. 16GB or more is required only by power users for heavy duty gaming, video gaming, programming and more.

  • Hard Drive

    The Hard Disk is where all the programs and personal files are stored on the computer. In this case, you have a choice between a Standard HDD (Hard Disk Drive) and an SSD (Solid State Disk). The HDD provides you with more storage space for a cheaper price, whereas an SSD compromises on space to provide faster performance at a similar price point.
