New HP computor coming shortly

Wanted to get an Apple product but they have Java issues. So we had pretty good luck with the HP we have, and will more than likely buy another one. So my question is: what do we get in this unit to meet everything needed in todays world of computing. I am sure it will accomodate whatever my Gopro needs to assimilate with, but what else? Ram memory, how
much? And what else guys?

You have to make sure the motherboard has the (extra) memory slots
therefore making it expandable as memory has doubled to double wide even triple wide sticks (i think) x 2
So check new egg after you do a specs check on the specifications list
of the new HP to see what the FACTORY installs.

the faster drives are of course the solid state drives for instant delivery
of your gui

Better: i5 or i7 processor, 8-16GB ram, discreet video preferred.

Nice & cheap versions of above: http://www.amazon.com/HP-500-290-Pav...rds=B00HYAL95E
