I was not techie when I first bought my computer but hopefully my folks were already using who were also not techies but knew about configurations. When looking for a computer we have to know which one will be perfect for us and know about the important aspects we're looking for in a computer.
That is exactly why AMD is trying to make it easier for us. All the configurations aren't as important as, "will it do what I want it to do for me?" LOL! I prefer to read whether it will process videos and pictures quickly and play a game at the same time or is it better for just surfing the internet. A slower computer isn't a bad thing if you don't need a fast processor for what you plan to do with the computer. I think sometimes sales people try to over sell us and many people feel like they don't know much about computer language so they trust the salesperson. I think making it easier for everyone to understand will make more people happy. They won't be oversold or undersold!
