Re: best way to learn about....
Depends on what your needs are.
In my opinion, the best options atm for price to performance would be an amd APU laptop. If you're wanting a laptop that is.
Be sure to at least have 4-6gb of ram tho.
The cpu's should at least be 2, 4 is great tho.
The speed should always be above 2ghz. I set that as a rule due to certain 32bit applications.
An AMD APU laptop will destroy an intel laptop tho in video gaming, 3d application performance and still have fast hardware for internet browsing and all your other needs for a lot more cheaper. Unless the intel laptop has an nvidia gpu, in that case you have to compare the gpu of the apu and the nvidia gpu.
Tell ya what, vm me or pm me a few laptops you like/want to get and I'll tell you which has the best hardware for the best price if you're looking to buy one. Or you can ask me any question you have through vm's/pm's about hardware. I've been building computers for around 7 years.
