How much memory do I need?

Memory or ‘RAM’ is the short-term memory of your computer. Anything currently running on the computer will be using your RAM. Every safari page, word document and mail application uses a small amount. More advanced users who use professional applications will require more RAM.

Here is what we recommend:

How much storage do I need?

The amount of storage you need depends on what you plan on storing on your system. For non-professional users, we recommend 500GB as a healthy amount. Having a good amount of storage allows for plenty of space for photos, videos, documents and other data you will collect over the lifetime of the system. If you’re not an avid user of your computer, then 250-320GB can be all you need.

For professional users, we recommend increasing that amount. Once you start loading your music, samples, photos and videos, you can find that your drive will fill up fairly quickly if you’re not careful. Not to mention when you start creating projects, producing or editing and you add all the data associated. At minimum 500GB is recommend and if budget allows 1TB is ideal. In certain cases more may be necessary, if you’re not sure please contact our team.

What is an SSD?

An SSD or solid state drive is the next generation in storage. They are twice the speed of a conventional HDD (Hard Disk Drive). They also  contain no moving parts and are therefore safer and less likely to fail.

Why you would pick an SSD over a HDD;

  • – Faster load time of the system and files.
  • – High bandwidth (Allows you too load more at once).
  • – More responsive system (Applications will load quicker and perform actions faster).

Why you would pick a HDD over an SSD;

  • – More cost effective (SSDs can be expensive, especially at higher volumes).
  • – Larger sizes (You can get much larger HDDs than you can SSDs).
  • – Speed is not required (If you only use your computer for basic functions such as email or watching films the speed isn’t needed).
