Always for Students or Parents Purchasing for Students - No Charge for a Second Opinion

The major computer suppliers target students in the fall with their advertising and parents of graduating students in the spring. When you are buying for a student (who is not majoring in an engineering field), some simple rules of thumb for running Microsoft Operating Systems. Look for i3,i5,i7 Intel processors. For most students who want to surf and use media, you want i5 or i7 OR you should be sure it lists a graphics processor with separate video memory. Don't confuse video memory with system memory. A basic system memory configuration is 4GB with a bus speed of >1000 (e.g., DDR3 1333). This is usually listed in the title or short description of a computer. i3 or not Intel processor will be o.k. if there is a separate graphics processor and video memory. You (your student) will be happier longer with i5,i7 and/or the separate video memory. You will need to look in the details for this. Most o of the configuration under $600 will list "shared system memory" for the video details. In that case, you want more than basic system memory. You (or your student) will be happier longer with 6GB or 8GB... especially if it list "shared system memory" for the video. More is better up to about 16GB, but that's probably overkill for most student.
