Operating System The operating system manages all software and hardware, including files, memory and connected devices. Most importantly, it lets you interact with your device and your programs in a visual way; otherwise, you'd be typing computer code to get anything done.
Processor Speed The clock speed of the processor, measured in hertz (Hz), is defined as the number of operations the central processing unit (CPU) can carry out in a single second. Working in combination with system memory, the power of the processor determines the complexity of software you can run, how many programs you can have open at the same time, and how fast those programs will run.
Processor Model Your computer's processor is like its brain. Working in combination with system memory, the power of the processor determines the complexity of software you can run, how many programs you can have open at the same time, and how fast those programs will run. Most computers feature an Intel or AMD processor.
Intel 6th Generation Core i7
System Memory (RAM) Random-access memory, or RAM, is important because it helps your processor tackle multiple tasks at once. A minimum of 2GB is required for basic computing, but 6GB or more is recommended if you're into graphics and advanced photo or video editing.

Number Of Ethernet Ports
Wireless Networking This device can connect via Wi-Fi to other devices without using cables or cords.
Graphics Type There are two types of graphics: dedicated/discrete graphics card and integrated graphics. A dedicated graphics card has its own random-access memory (RAM), its own cooling system, and dedicated power regulators, with all components designed specifically for processing video images. Integrated graphics is the video hardware that is integrated into the motherboard or the CPU. In a PC with integrated graphics, the graphics processor shares system resources (like memory) with the CPU.

Port Type(s) USB 2.0 connects external drives, gaming controllers, smartphones, MP3 players and other accessories. USB 3.0 transfers data faster than USB 2.0, but only when used with USB 3.0 devices. USB Type-C provides fast speeds and versatile power, featuring connectors with identical ends that plug in upside down or right side up. Adapters allow for video as well as backward compatibility. Thunderbolt provides ultra-high bandwidth for fast data transfer between devices featuring a Thunderbolt or MiniDisplayPort connection. HDMI allows you to connect a projector or display HD media on your HDTV or monitor. Media card slots allow you to transfer photos from your digital camera or camcorder.
