Thank you so much Sir PhillPower 2, Sir britechguy, Sir hamluis, and Sir MadmanRB for help me.
I'm really behind in technology so I don't know much about new CPUs/processors stuff. As the only computer I have is the window 7 AMD one I got back in 2011/2012.
I never play game, so I really don't need a gaming computer.
I just need a basic computer where I can read world news like CNN, BBC. Browse around forums, listen to music watch DVDs, and that pretty much it.
My windows 7 AMD one I rarely download any software, all I download is the Microsoft window 7 Security updates and monthly Rollup, a CCleaner, a VLC media player, and Norton. That it.
Well, my budget is $400 that counted tax (which you can't barely buy a desktop with these days inflation, and I live in a very HCOL state) but I do see a new 2017 HP Windows 10 computer, that at the regular price of $349.
It this one: HP Slim 270-p043w Desktop, Intel Core i3-7100 Processor, 8GB Memory.
Maybe I should get that? since it brand new unopen box.
oh, and one more question if you can help me. The refurbished AMD A4 5300B run at 3.40 GHz speed.
And the refurbised Intel Core 2 Duo run at 2.93 GHz speed.
Both of that refurbished they sale at about $130 (like couple dollars difference).
Processor wise, I think Intel Core 2 duo released date was like 10 year sago.
And AMD A4 5300B released date was 5 years go.
The Intel Core 2 Duo one is 1TB HDD hard drive.
And the AMD A4 5300B one is 2TB SATA hard drive (AMD one hard drive is double in size).
I always heard that Intel is better than AMD. But then I heard that Hard drive wise SATA is better than HDD.
These two refurbished ones, the price of the Intel Core 2 Duo it more (however it two different sellers, so maybe it just that seller price it higher or lower).
Anyways, if that is the only two options I have, the AMD one clearly is better right? But part of me said isn't it too good to be true for a 2TB at that price? I mean I hope they don't ship me a broken refurbished computer or something.
If you were me which would you buy in that two refurbished choice?
I'm sorry I asked too much questions, I just have anxiety and I'm super confuse when it come to CPUs stuff. I only ever use AMD though, so I do want to try Intel (as I keep heard it better), but with that two refurbished choice and price, the AMD one better right?
