Here’s how our tech geniuses operate

Sure, you can go your own way. You can also follow in some experts’ footsteps. We have a few tech mavericks on our team who know modern computers inside and out. They’ve honed down on two gadgets they like more than any others.

If you’re looking for a new system to work on, here’s what our IT guys Jeremy and John recommend. We purchase computers from Dell, a sponsor of Kim’s national radio show and the brand we trust.

Best laptop: Inspiron 15

This powerful laptop has an 11th Generation Intel Core i5 processor and a 512GB solid-state hard drive. Enjoy crisp, colorful images on its 15-inch anti-glare LED-backlit display. You can also do a lot with its 16GB of memory.

This laptop is built for productivity, with a lid sensor that makes the machine power right up when you open it. This 5000 model is also equipped with ExpressCharge. In other words, you can charge up to 80% in just an hour.

Desktop of choice: Optiplex

This powerful computer is a good, solid machine that will hold up well for routine, day-to-day work. It will easily last you four to five years. Tap or click here for all Dell Small Business Solutions.

We go for a model with an i5 processor, 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage space. That works well for most uses. If you have editors on staff or you process video or audio yourself, you may want to bump up the local storage.
