What computer should I get?

Episode 990 (1:38:03)

Sandra from Bellflower, CA

Sandra is ready to get a full size computer after not having one for awhile. Leo wonders why a full computer? Sandra says she likes having a huge screen. Leo says it really depends on what Sandra is going to use it for. An i5 processor is fine for just about anything Sandra will do. Her husband is an artist though, so she's wondering if she should get an i7. Leo says it doesn't really give that much of a performance boost for most of what they will do.

Leo says that a Mac would be a good option for both Sandra and her husband. For someone coming back into the computer world, Windows may be a hassle because of security and other issues. A 27" iMac would be ideal.
