Screen size and plugins (# of USBs, aux, HDMI, etc) is probably the one you need to pay the most attention to depending on what you'll be using it for. Getting a computer with an i5 or higher processor will be good for speed (not too familiar with other CPUs).

A solid state drive (SSD) will have faster startup than a hard drive (HDD) and you'll want to get 256GB storage or higher. If you're getting something with HDD get 500gb storage or higher.

Some cheap computers come without a disk drive for CDs and such or number key area on the keyboard, so if those are important to you be sure to check for that.

There's my basic understanding. I would wait to see what Plank has to say if you want professional level advice though

Too bad blog piracy isn't what it was or you wouldn't need Soulseek as much.

Do you want a bunch of free apps or the freedom of a computer?

I think that'd be the biggest thing to consider because both can stream netflix/spotify. I have an old refurbed ipad, its slow af and i dont really enjoy it, but it sure is nice to lay down at night with a small screen and watch youtube or a show.
