8 Top Computer Recommendations for 2022

8 Top Computer Recommendations for 2022


June 12, 2022


Frankly, it's shameful that Best Buy and Amazon are selling computers with only 8 GB of RAM for new Computers. That is the bare minimum to run Windows. 16 GB is a more realistic bare mininum, with 24-32 GB being a more reasonable amount to do email and web surfing. The maximum that Windows 11 can accomodate is 128 GB, however some motherboard manufactures limit a new computer to just 64 GB.


If a Laptop path is chosen, then a hi-res Monitor, Adapter, and Articulated Arm are recommended

If a Desktop path is chosen, then a Monitor, and Articulated Arm are recommended


New Monitors (buy 1 or 2 of these, max)


32" 4K UHD:

LG 32UN500-W Monitor 32" UHD (3840 x 2160) Display, AMD FreeSync, DCI-P3 90% Color Gamut, HDR10, Built-in Speakers, 3-Side Virtually Border-less Design - Silver/White
