In weightlifting terms, Power takes into account both Weight and Speed, but I'm not sure exactly what is meant by a "powerful" computer: some combination of speed and capability?
I think even a low-end model would serve my current needs at reasonable speed. I'm a little concerned that within a few years programs and websites will become more and more laden with bells and whistles that will make my system operate more slowly with little gain.
I'd like to be able to play the occasional DVD and view streaming video over the web, but have no need for serious graphics or games. How concerned with power should I be?
One of the best French door fridges we've tested
A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
