Brothers in Tech: Computers – Deep Dive #2: Computer Specs
Megabytes? Gigabytes? Terabytes? The numbers can be daunting. In this deep dive into the world of computers, the Brothers try to make sense of the specifications that you should know if you are looking to purchase a new machine, including:
· Hard Drive
In addition, the “BiTS” (Brothers in Tech Suggestions):
- Alan’s Pick = MacTracker: An app (Mac only, free) that will provide you all sorts of cool information about older macs. Pics, specs, and OS capability…pretty cool.
- Brian’s Pick = DaisyDisk: An app (Mac only, $9.99) that can visually map your hard drive to show you what files are taking up a lot of space, and easily allow you to delete them. **WinDirStat is a good Windows version (free).
