" ..... how it handles various tasks ..... will only limit what your PC can do. "
What's that mean, please? My machines sole task is to get me in here. And let me watch stuff on Netflix. Am I missing something?
You need to buy a car to go from A to B
You have a lot of choice with different specifications such as performance, comfort and ancillaries etc etc.
If you are happy tootling along your journey at max 90 Kph then you have no need to buy a performance car.
If you want performance then something else will suffer .... maybe cost of ownership, or extra space or whatever.
YOU choose the vehicle that suits YOUR purpose.
For instance you want to watch Netflix ..... but at what 'level'?
Do you require 720p video, or 1080p video or maybe 4K video?
You must ensure your PC is capable of producing the results YOU desire.
That is YOUR buying decision.
There is no point in buying a PC with a very low end CPU and low RAM and expecting it to perform like a PC with a high end CPU and lots of RAM.
|As an aside; Just looked up " SSD ". Wow! Scary! I see they reckon an average HDD's likely to fart and die at three years old?! Blimey! I don't think we'd better go there, just yet, though. I'm a numb nut and this is already a helluva lot for me to take in.|
