I don't need much computing power to do my trades because I look at fundamentals. Just have an entry level laptop and sometimes I use the app on my iPad just to check certain things. Personally, I would rather take the money and buy more shares than buy an extra laptop.

Very good as long as you go for 32 GB plus as Windows 8.1/10 does not yet allow app storage on the sd card, faster than my laptop.
