Choosing the right PC can be overwhelming – there are so many cool designs, PC manufacturers and hardware configurations to choose one. While all of my posts are designed to make that experience a little easier, I’m taking things one step further.
Starting today, you can submit questions to be answered in my monthly “Ask Ben Anything” column. Here’s the deal – if you have any kind of PC buying question, need a recommendation on a specific component (graphics card, processor, etc.), need advice on peripherals or software, send it my way and I’ll use every tool at my disposal to find you an answer.
Each month, I’ll choose three of the best and most relevant questions and answer them in a post, so everyone reading the blog can benefit from the answers, tips and tricks. (NOTE: If you submit a question and you would prefer I not post it on the blog, just say so and the conversation will stay between you and me.)
You can ask your question in three ways:
- Leave a comment on a post.
- Email me at BenThePCGuy@live.com
- Find me on Twitter @BenThePCGuy
I’ll post my first column with user-submitted questions on June 10th (and then monthly after that), so you have plenty of time to get your questions in.
I suppose i'll get things started...
Which is better: Integrated or Dedicated Graphics?
Esp. With regards to Intel/AMD, computer use, RAM amount, etc.
As a programmer, yet also as a silverlight developer...i'm wondering what should be in my next pc. thanks!
Am going to buy a quad core laptop and am confused with 2 i7 processor
Intel i7-720 1.6GHz 2.8GHz Turbo Mode,6MB Cache with 6Gb Ram or
i7-820 1.73GHz 3.06GHz Turbo Mode, 8MB Cache with 3 gb ram?
Of the 2 processor whic one to choose?Shoud i go for little less Ghz and more ram or vice versa?
I don't mean to steal a page out of Ben's book (obviously he'll answer in more detail anyways) but i figured it'd be okay just to say: More RAM and a tad less GHz is egads better... a faster processor can't do anything without enough RAM, anyways, and i've seen PCs with the same processor function much, much faster when RAM was added. ;-)
I'm a power user.i'm looking forward for a laptop with multi-touch capabilities.I dont think there are much devices in market for sale now?Why is it so even though windows 7 supports natively?Any good laptop with touch,3 or 4 GB of RAM and 512-1 GB Graphics card,Intel Core i Series equivalent processor..?
I am running a Windows 7 laptop with the Office 2010 Home Beta. How can I set 2010 to be the default programs for the appropriate file types? I've tried doing it through Defaults, but 2010 doesn't appear on the application list.
I have just obtained a Netbook running Windows 7 Starter edition and would like to know if I can upgrade to Windows 7 Professional using a copy that I already own? I sold a PC recently that I had upgraded to Windows 7 Pro and re-installed Vista prior to selling it. so I have a legal copy already. Surely I do not need to install the Pro version or buy an Anytime version?
