Processor Wars Are Much Over

I can remember shopping for computers over the years and looking at three main things: memory, hard disk space and processor speed. Do you remember?
While memory (2GB or more) and hard disk space (100GB or more) are still important specifications for a computer, the processor speed is no longer relevant.
The processor coming with any computer you buy is going to be more than sufficient for most basic office needs. There’s really no need to analyze it closely. Brand does not even matter very much – Intel or AMD.
If you are doing gaming, running graphic intensive software or other specialized software wherein the processor really matters, of course hte processor type is important.
