Rick's son is about to start school and wants a laptop. He wants a 15" screen, running Windows 10. Leo says that almost all laptops have a touchscreen. But Leo recommends the Lenovo Thinkpad T-series. They have no-touch screen options. He will want a mini 8GB RAM. Another option is the Dell XPS 15. Microsoft's Surface Pro Laptop 3 business model is also good.

Chris wants to buy a laptop and he needs processor power, but what else should he consider? Leo says that for what Chris wants, he should have an i7 with 16 GB of RAM with a solid state drive. Chris says he can get an i5 with 12GB. Is that good enough? Leo says sure. the i7 has Hyperthreading, which is good for multitasking. For raw speed, however, the i5 works just as well. If he wants a pro machine, it's going to set him back between $1000 and $1500. Chris hates touch screens though. Should he bite the bullet and just get one?
