==> PS: The meeting covered a number of questions. From how to work with One-Drive to retrieve and edit documents in the full version of Word or Excel. We also covered a series of questions about selecting a new computer. Key items covered included: laptop or desktop?; keyboard layout; heat build-up; Disk drives (HDD or SSD – size 250GB-1TB…); Random access memory ( 4GB min for WIN10, to 8GB usable, to 16GB  excellent, to 32GB wow ); Processing units (Intel I3 min, I5 solid OK, I7 excellent, and even an I9 wow). Many of these computers come with multiple processing chips (cores) for doing the calculations (we looked at 2, 4, and even 6 cores… and more). We even touched on graphics cards which frequently come with their own memory and processing chips (graphic cores). The price points and where to buy and service are always a consideration.
