Re: if you were getting a new computer.
We are up to Gen 10 from Intel and they are solid CPU's for the
money. I use I5's myself. I7 or higher CPU's are for high end
gaming and video editing. I also prefer 16GB of RAM but 8 or 12 is
plenty unless you do video or photo editing. An SSD is a must and
256GB is fine for the OS and programs. Of course big as you can
afford is what I would suggest. I store all my media and personal
data on a second drive. 4TB is what I have now in 2 machines and
2TB in the third. Onboard sound and video is more than enough
unless of course you do video or audio editing. Then a dedicated
video and or audio card is recommended. USB 3.1 is a must And a
couple of type C connections should be considered.
