Question: What kind of computer should I buy for my home?
Answer: What computer you buy depends on what you intend to use it for.Most computer software has a section on the box that specifies the minimum and preferred configuration for running that software. If you check out all of the software that you want to run and make a note of the prefferred configuration you can then look for a computer that has at least the preferred configuration of the highest requirement of the software you want to run on it. If you are planning on having several programs running at the same time then you may want extra memory and a higher processor speed than you just worked out. Once you have your specification check out what computers are available that meet or exceed that specification and look at how much they cost. If a computer that exceeds your requirements is within your price range then it will give you more flexibility for the future than one that just meets your requirement.
