    Hey Dave. Need some advice. my go gaming is mainly Dota 2 & Overwatch. Would a Surface Pro 6 be sufficient? or if there is a laptop you would recommend that is no overkill. Thank you in advance.

    Updated version? The differences between Intel and AMD, the Nvidia GPUs available and whether or not to bother with Ray Tracing, along with updated numbers.

    hey im a student learning computer programming and i play a bunch of games what laptop do you think i should get with a budget of 900usd

    I think this video still holds true today even for pc building just the numbers went up but the principles are same just with new parts.

    Normal User – 4gb ram is still useable but 8gb is recommended. SSD seems to be a must nowadays.

    Video Editor – 16gb is also good but upgrading 32GB should be help you future proof. SSD is a must now.

    Gamer – 8gb still holds somewhat but 16gb is the new norm. Although with next gen consoles having more powerful CPU and an SSD as a default that could change in this in the near future.

  24. Tuneese

    jesus 2 or 4gb ram nowadays is crippling😱

  25. Tuneese

    use coupons aswell. so many laptop brands like lenovo and asus have them you just have to find them. Honey doesnt have alot of them so search online urself.

    Me: I want to buy a new notebook, mom.

    '2 cores is fine'
    Also me: Oh, its in 2015

  28. Ravi Peiris

    Although several years old, the topic is still relevant.

  29. Tantei Gema

    Watched this again still a good guide even for PC building.

    Just update the ram:

    Normal User: 4 to 8 gb ram
    Video Editor: 16 to 32 gb ram
    Gamer: 8 to 16 GB ram and and small size SSD for OS is a must nowadays.
