  6. Wesley Otero on December 29, 2019 at 9:32 pm

    Great video. I did hoped you focused on best computers for programmers while in school or business. Also, maybe a comparison between AMD and Intel, but good info for most people.

  24. PorkusPie on December 29, 2019 at 9:57 pm

    You must be an Apple user because you skipped over AMD processors.

  25. Marian Pelmus on December 29, 2019 at 9:57 pm

    good to see you again after hackerRank tutorials :)) 🤗

  26. maryhull1000 on December 29, 2019 at 9:57 pm

    Thank you so much for explaining this in plain English for someone like me that doesn’t understand technology very well. Would love to see you do videos on computer trouble shooting or basic things the average home computer owner should know about the operation of their PC or technology in general. It’s your teaching style and delivery of your content that I know would appeal to an entire audience of people that grew up before technology was prevalent in our lives, who struggle with it and would likely embrace it more if the understood it better. Thanks again!

  27. kaustav pakira on December 29, 2019 at 9:59 pm

    Man she is so cute with lots of eye expressions that i could barely follow her explanations

  28. Kayla Carroll on December 29, 2019 at 10:06 pm

  30. Aria Maze on December 29, 2019 at 10:09 pm

    This was really helpful and it pupped just after seing a laptop review. I´m looking for a new computer for my editing projects and UX/UI desings.
    Now I have a better reference for what im looking for in a laptop, it gotta be 8 ram, i5, +3.0 Gz, +7 generation. This works for me just fine. I can´t effort a mac
    with thoses characteristic attributtes you recommend :,(

    Thank for the advice and be on time!

  35. Teal Kerberus on December 29, 2019 at 10:18 pm

    Nice shirt. Even before watching the vid, I reckon anyone who owns that shirt is probably going to know what they’re talking about. 😎

  36. Indian भारतीय on December 29, 2019 at 10:19 pm

    You are so beautiful. Love you

  37. Will Ganness on December 29, 2019 at 10:20 pm

    Its 2019 No one uses i3, 5 7 anymore and from the looks of it they might be on the way out, Smart folks are buying Ryzen. Today its more important for most applications to focus on RAM and a fast SSD, M.2 because as you said 1.5 GHz is plenty for most applications while speeds over 3 GHz is normal. Integrated graphics can run even a 4K monitor pretty decently (esp the AMD chipsets), even more than one these days. Why do you remind me of Laci Green?

  38. Arshia Kohanteb on December 29, 2019 at 10:21 pm

    Great Video!
