Clarification Request
Depends on what you expect to be doing

In reply to: new computer

It seems to be decent enough for basic use. The processor looks to be decent being quad core but it will have Intel 2000 graphics which will only be adequate. The only thing that puzzles me is the 16 gb of memory and 2 TB hard drive. I'd expect those to be outfitted in somewhat more capable PCs. If I had my "druthers", I'd save a few bucks and get one with 1/2 that memory and a smaller drive. I'd put that money into an external drive.

Yes, Is it good.
bcz in new laptop we check:

Weight and Size: It is the most important factor for selecting a laptop. As the main advantage of using laptop is its portable feature.

Input Devices: Laptops are provided with a different type of input system for navigation. Unlike the hand-driven mouse in PCs, laptops have a touchpad, which acts as a mouse.

Battery:The major part of a laptop is its battery, which makes it possible for a laptop to be carried along to different places.

Your sound chipset is very good.

In reply to: new computer

But, try to find if your graphics/video chipset from Intel is capable to handle a minimum of 512Mb of graphics/video processing.

And, if it does, make sure its device driver is of late 2011/early 2012 for optimum status of web and gaming's flashy new colored + real life like graphics/videos.

The Bios is totally new. So, no problems at updating/upgrading the mainboard's graphics/video chipset to a dedicated graphics/video card within the PCI-E x16 expansion slot. The only problem I can see is the lack of power supply(350W) for such an upgrade(later on). You will have to get yourself a 500W/600W one when you decide to install a 1 to 2Gb graphics/video card into that expansion slot.

Only the PCs with a 1,200$ and up will provide you with decent PSU and a 1 to 2Gb graphics/video card already installed that new PC model. It is the manufacturers ways of cashing in with the inthusiasts of IT technologies.
