    I have 3 younger sisters, they are all in primary school and one of them is just about to start secondary school. They use the internet for playing kids games and watching you tube videos mostly. A bit of word processing is mostly all the work that will be done on the computer. Videos must be able to play sharply and without stopping or slowing the computer down too much.

    So I saw this computer on ebay? Is it good enough for my requirements? I haven't heard of the processor before so just wanted some clarification?

    :rofl: That advert is hilarious, basically a bunch of lies and misleading advertisement.
    And they seem to know nothing about computers in my opinion :lolwut:

    Do remember that its just the box and no screen, etc
    Processors ok, you need minimum a dual core.......however ram is on the low side, I would try and get 3+gb just in case.

    For all that is good and holy avoid whoever is selling these things. Advertising a computer as 6.8Ghz is completely misleading, you do not advertise clock speed based on the clock multiplied by the number of cores. That is most definitely not the equivalent of having two separate processors either, considering virtually every desktop CPU on the market is dual core at an absolute minimum.

    Everything screams "dodgy". I wouldn't be surprised to see they cut corners wherever they can, especially in things like the power supply.
