The question of what computer to buy is a personal one.
First of all, let’s start with the type of computer that you should not get, and that is a Chromebook. Google makes Chromebooks, and like every other product Google makes, these computers are specifically designed to steal your data.
If you are not very computer literate and if you just want to get a system that works well, then I recommend an Apple computer. Macs are better and more secure than Windows based machines.
If you really want to take your computer privacy to the next level, I recommend that you buy a System 76 machine with the POP OS operating system loaded on it. If you don’t know what an operating system is, then stick with a Mac. POP OS is a version of Linux, which is an open sourced operating system that has always been for computer geeks who really know what they are doing, but it has now evolved to the point that it is easy enough to use for the average user…
I will say that System 76 is a really good computer and operating system, but it’s not for everyone. You will still probably have to know more than the average user to get around on it, but if this is you, then I recommend System 76.
