  4. PROCESSOR – speed and performance of the computer are determined through its processor. Intel Core 2 duo is advisable and now common in the market.
  5. SCREEN – Again, going back to your No.2 , the purpose, if you will buy a laptop or computer just to be able to watch your favorite movies, then a big screen is to be considered. But do you know that many computers with screens larger than 16 inches may have a few hours of battery life?
  6. MEMORY – They said that if screen is the eyes of the computer, processor is the brain then Memory is the heart.
