Computer Recommendations

At Jester’s Computers we will provide you our professional recommendation based on what we have experienced with PC’s over the years! If you aren’t sure you are welcome to call us during business hours (717) 642-6611 (Mon, Wed, Fri 9am -5pm & Tue / Thurs 9am-7pm)

  • We do not recommend ALL-IN-ONE computers because the ability to perform repairs are minimal!
  • We recommend Desktops over laptops because the parts and repair costs are substantially lower on desktops and some repairs are not possible on laptops!

To consider:

  • Toshiba
  • Lenovo
  • Acer (higher end models)

To avoid:

  • Dell
  • HP


To consider:

  • Highly recommend an extended warranty
  • Memory – 4GB and up
  • Hard drives – any is ok Solid State is better!
  • CD Drive – some laptops don’t come with Disc drives
  • Number of USB ports

To avoid:

  • CD/DVD DRIVE – Some don’t have disc drives
  • CPU – Celeron or Atom processors are VERY slow
  • Memory – less than 4 GB is not enough
  • Hard drive – Make sure you have enough storage space. TB is bigger than GB
  • Video – If your a gamer you will want something better than on-board video
