The ones before I already decided are not good. So what do you think about this one is it better?

Sorry but it's better in almost every aspect. I can't see why I would pick out every component to write more than "it's better."

Idk but thank you anyway. Another question:
Jun 28, 2015 7:48AM PDT

About the creepware stuff, I was told Linux is more prone to protect me from that stuff, is that right? What do you recommend I do in my new PC to make sure I dont get spied on like I have been before? Thank you

Most of the spyware if not all

Was installed by the owner. Also, if you don't want to be spied on at all, you would never connect it to the internet.

Re: Linux

Since FL studio doesn't run in Linux, that question is out of the context of this thread.


PS. You latest PC has more RAM, a larger hard disk and a later OS. So it's better (and probably more expensive?) then your second one.

Please continue at your original post and for new questions such as security, spyware, start a new discussion about that.
