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.

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.

Battery Life Battery life will vary depending on the product configuration, product model, applications loaded on the product, power management setting of the product and the product features used by the customer. As with all batteries, the maximum capacity of this battery will decrease with time and usage.
Touch Screen Touch-screen devices make navigating more intuitive. Using a touch-screen display, you can do things such as tap to select, hold and drag to move items, swipe to scroll, and pinch to zoom.
Cache Memory Cache memory, also called CPU memory, is random-access memory (RAM) that a computer microprocessor can access more quickly than it can access regular RAM. This memory is typically integrated directly with the CPU chip or placed on a separate chip that has a separate bus interconnect with the CPU.
Type of Memory (RAM) Different types of RAM are available; some of the most common are DDR4, DDR3 and DDR2. Each type of RAM delivers a different level of speed, bandwidth, energy efficiency and performance.

Number Of USB Port(s)
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.

Bluetooth Enabled This device will connect to other Bluetooth-enabled devices without the need for cables or cords. Many wireless printers, wireless speakers, wireless keyboards, wireless mice, wireless headphones, desktops, laptops, tablets, and cell phones are Bluetooth enabled.
NFC Enabled Near-field communication (NFC) enables two electronic devices, one of which is usually a portable device such as a smartphone, to establish communication when the devices are no more than 2" apart. This wireless data transfer method detects and enables technology in close proximity to communicate without the need for an Internet connection.
Wireless Networking This device can connect via Wi-Fi to other devices without using cables or cords.
