Use to get PCs custom built and frankly it was fun to pick and chose. But thats 20 years ago. I still have the carcas of a couple if units upstars gathering dust. One suffered mortal damage when the PS fried. The other needs a new HD. One day.
Now I rely on near off the shelf PCs. Started with Thinkpad Laptops, then had a fling with HP and gone back to Lenovo Z series Ideapads. 3 years ago I3 equipped units were find.
Now I'm up to I7 and kids to I5. I3 is history.
Stuck with Intel, since I have never spent the time to figure out AMD products.
