I have not bought a computer in six years am looking for some advice. I would like to buy two new laptops, one for myself and one for my wife and I am having some trouble deciding on how much we need. I will be using one of the laptops to do some work at home in MS Office, and to do some basic things online. My wife will use the other laptop for watching videos, reading, and playing games like the Sims. I would like to get some good laptops, but I don't think either of us need anything that is too powerful. How much RAM would I want for a laptop? Would I want a graphics card for my wife's laptop so she can play games like the Sims? What level of AMD or intel processors would I want? Are intel processors better or more reliable than AMD? I have noticed that AMD seems cheaper which is why I am asking.
