Computer specs and their function
      #43851 - 12/06/12 04:07 PM


I am having trouble understanding what all the computer specs mean. Can someone explain to me all the specs that people look at before considering to buy it?

Thank you.

I'm sure there are a bunch of guides on the web. The most popular specs are:

- CPU (latest gen?), clock speed and performance
- Screen resolution and type (IPS displays are generally noticeably better)
- SSD? Bonus for that because it's much faster, only drawback is lower storage capacity vs. traditional hard drives
- Touchscreen (handy for Windows 8)
- Dedicated graphics? Important to 3D gamers particularly and sometimes HD video producers
