Laptop or desktop?
My budget for the new computer is:
What are the main uses of this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc.)?
=> Programming and web browsing
What software do you plan to use on the computer?
=> pycharm, android studio, jupyter notebook, machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithm and neural networks running.
Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close each program when you are done using it?
=> Yes. I use at least 20-30 tabs in Google Chrome to learn sth.
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
=> No for that I will buy a hard drive. It is not my priority.
Are you going to overclock?
=> I have no idea. So maybe not.
Location for online shopping / shipping / pricing?
=> I am located in Kathmandu, Nepal
How many monitors do you plan to use?
=> 1. But I have 1 LCD monitor so I may need to use it later in my programming journey. I’m not sure about this tho.
Do you need peripherals? OS?
=> I already have peripherals. I can handle the operating system one way or another.
Any particular reason you’re upgrading?
=> Pycharm keeps restarting on my current laptop. Disk usage frequently reaches 100% on my current laptop. That is why.
