If the thought of buying a new computer overwhelms you, you are not alone. There are so many brands and options to choose from, and all the technical specifications can seem like a foreign language. Deciding between a laptop or desktop is usually the easy part, but then you have to decide on the size of the hard drive, memory, and processor. It’s a lot to take in, especially when it’s such a big purchase and you don’t want to make the wrong decision.
Thankfully, there are resources available to help you decide which computer is best for you. I recently discovered THE IN-CROWD on HSN at INTEL.HSN.COM and I’ve already learned so much. The experts at HSN have created exclusive videos that you can watch to learn more about your devices — everything from processors, to 2-in-1 laptops, to battery life, to Solid State Drive (SSD) vs Hard Disk Drive (HDD).
One of the most important features to look at when buying a computer is how much storage it has. A thinner, lighter PC is generally faster but has less local storage (SSD) and a larger PC has more local storage space (HDD). I take a lot of photos and videos for work and need a lot of storage space, so while a thinner, faster PC seems appealing, a larger PC with more HDD is a better option for me.
Unsure which is better for you? In the latest video on THE IN-CROWD on HSN, you can learn how computer storage works, and about the two most common types, Solid State Drives and Hard Disk Drives. The video provides a side-by-side demonstration, along with pros and cons of each to help you determine which storage option is best for you.
As you shop for a new computer, I highly recommend checking out THE IN-CROWD on HSN. To get started, take the online quiz to “discover your dream device” and then check out the processor comparison chart to see which of the Intel processors best fits your lifestyle. Also, make sure you come back each month for a new educational video focused on Intel-based devices and technologies!
I took the quiz and it recommended the Apple iMac® 21.5″ HD LED, 2.8GHz Intel Core i5, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD All-in-One Desktop Computer with USB Hub for my family. Which computer did it recommend for you?
