Advice on a computer's speed

It's difficult to determine how fast a computer feels. One person's sense of speed can be completely different from the other person. It's truly a personal preference. Even so, in order to make things a bit easier for you, we've made a ranking of fast computers. This ranking is divided into the categories fast, faster, fastest. This way, you'll still have a sense of how a fast a certain computer is.

  • A Core i3 processor at best
  • A HDD or a SSD
