As a computer tech I’m often asked what computer someone should buy, especially during the back to school season. It’s been my experience that without that direction they typically go to a store and buy something pretty that an experience an inexperienced commissioned salesperson tells them is right for them. In other words they are buying blind.

This video doesn’t tell you what computer to buy. it tells you the features that you should consider and why those features might be important to you.

We discuss Intel versus AMD, what an Intel performance core is, what an Intel efficient efficiency core is, is a touch screen worth the money, is 12th gen Intel Iris XE video good enough to play games these days, does the speed of the memory make any difference, what should you look for in a hard drive.
