Which of these two computers is the best choice for me?

Hello everybody,


I'm looking to replace my laptop on which I run Live 8. There are two types of desktops  in my price range but the have somewhat different specifications when it comes to processor types.


Model 1:


Type of processor: AMD E-series E2-1800

clock speed: 1700 Mhz

internal memory: 4 GB, DDR3 DIMM

maximum internal memory: 8 GB


Model 2:


Type of processor: Intel® Core™ i5-3330 Processor (6M Cache, 3.00 GHz)

internal memory:4GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz


Your input is much appreciated!


Happy holidays,

    Check the minimum specs you need to run the latest version of Live (product info on the website).
    The faster the processor, and the bigger the memory, the better.
    But what is also important when choosing a new computer is:
    - can it be upgraded if necessary.
    - what type of ports does it have, and how many.
    - what audio interface are you going to use, and will that work with the chosen computer

    Most modern laptops can easily handle Live, though.
