RAM (Memory) is the key to multi-tasking. The more RAM you have, the more programs you can have open at once without slowing the machine down. Certain programs use more RAM than others, so it is worth checking out the system requirements for the software you will be using.

We offer three different storage types:
HDD (Hard Disk Drive) – HDDs tend to have large capacities so you can store more data.
SSD (Solid State Drive) – SSDs will outperform HDDs due to faster technology. You will see a significant increase in performance and load times. SSDs tend to be less prone to faults due to no moving parts unlike traditional HDDs.
NVMe (Nonvolatile Memory Express) – NVMe is the next generation form of SSD. They are physically smaller in size and offer even faster performance (around 3-4 times faster than standard SSDs).

This will be the Operating System installed on your device.
Windows Home – This is the basic edition of Windows. It provides all the fundamental functions of Windows. If you are using the device for personal use only, Windows Home will be ideal.
Windows Pro – This is the professional version of Windows which includes all features of Windows Home with additional capabilities that are oriented towards professionals and business environments. If you will be using the device for work purposes, you will most likely require Windows Pro so your employer can manage your device under its company policies.
