Question by philasophos01: Computer geek question: What specs & features should a new laptop have if I want it to work well for 3+ years?
Background: My laptop is on its last legs (to the point that fixing the keyboard & DVD drive would cost more than a new laptop) & it’s CPU & RAM are too low to support many things, like hulu & iTunes videos. It’s a Sony Vaio ultra-portable from 2004. So….
So I am going to buy a new computer. I know that basically any computer I buy today will be sufficient for the next year or so, but I don’t know what resource demands will be in a few years.
Also, I wonder if there are certain features I should wait for, like USB 3.0 or 4G service & reception being standard? (There’s probably lots of other features too, but I haven’t been keeping up lately! – I need to go hang out at CES 2011!)
Answer by Zelkathz
Any computers will work fine for 3 years long (mine is 4 years now) you also have the warranty from your computer store. So don’t be too worried about what you’re getting. Just try to do some research and you could ask questions on cnet.com too.
Hope this helps.
