New computers

by ITYOU / June 26, 2015 9:57 AM PDT

I am an IT intern. My company is looking to buy a set of new computers. There is a general direction of what we would like the computers to be. We would like at least 2.4 gh, at least 4gb ram, at least 500 gb hard drive capacity, preferable if the operating system came clean because we have a windows installation disc, the laptop screen size would ideally be between 14"-16". It would be ideal if the computer had an optical drive with a camera and bluetooth/wireless function enabled. The price range we can afford is from $499.99-749.99.

Thank you for the help

All the makers have such systems today.

At our office we have many many Dells. 4GB RAM? All our new laptops are 8GB. Why? We pay our folk by the hour and RTOI is too high to ignore to skimp out on RAM.

I agree with Bob. Here's a list of starting points.

I'd go to Amazon, Dell, Frys, Micro Center, NewEgg, etc. web sites and pick out the closest fit and best price. As Bob suggests, you shouldn't have any problem finding what you're looking for. I also agree about the 8 GB. The extra 4 GB will only add about $50 or so, and it's well worth it. You can get by with 4 GB, but there will be times when it'll be slow, so don't skimp on RAM. Re CPU I prefer the Intel I5. My brand preference is Dell and Toshiba. Asus has a good reputation as well.
Good luck.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
