But when it comes to purchasing computers, brands like HP, TOSHIBA, DELL, LENOVO and co as it all.

HDD Memory

Also known as Hard  Disk Drive. This is where all your files will be stored, be it documents, pictures, video, music, etc. If you are purchasing a computer for business purposes, then you must go for a hard disk drive with larger storage. For me, I use 1 Petabyte. Don’t ask me how I got it.đŸ˜„

RAM Memory

Well known as Random Access Memory. It is also a storage device but not as large a the Hard  Disk Drive memory. The main difference between the two memories is that the HDD memory is permanent storage while the latter is temporary storage.

Technology is being improved every day. And the processors being used in the early computers will definitely not suit today’s computers. This is because the processor is the brain of the computer and one should try to get a computer with a good processor. The most popular types of processors are; Intel Core i7-8700K, AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X, Intel Core i5-7600K(Best gaming CPU).


Back then, I thought all computers have the same graphics display but lately, I noticed there was a difference. The graphics of a computer mostly rely on the operating system(OS) installed on the computer, but it is greatly determined by the brand of the computer and VGA card. (VGA – Video Graphic Adapter).


Battery capacity is yet another factor to consider when buying a computer. As the computer is a portable device so should have a good battery life to work anywhere. A computer with a poor battery life will always slow down your work. Most of the low-price computers come with 6-cell batteries. Well, the battery life depends greatly on the usage and how well you maintain it.
