Basic computer for the parents of a friend who only do email/web browsing/pictures/videos/Microsoft Word stuff
They were suggested by their computer tech guy that they buy an i7 37xx or better- “ie. 3900”
Holy crap dude.
Are you nuts?! I suppose you expect them to overclock the thing too right?! Can you even feel the difference between an i3 and an i5 for that kind of basic use, nevermind an i7?!
