To All Newbies & Aspirants: Here's our recommended computer specs for your home-based freelance work.

► For Writing & Research-- A Dualcore with 2gb RAM can do since it consumes minimal computer resources..

► For Graphic Arts & Design-- Look for a processor with high clock speed. Preferably 3.3ghz up. Or look for those with hyper-threading capabilities for turbo processing. Photoshop & other image editing apps are commonly single cored dependent but requires higher core clocks.

You may also need lots of RAM preferably 4GB &up, And a GPU(Graphic Card) for machine assisted rendering.

► For eCommerce, Product Listing & Product Research-- You need a multicored machine. A Quadcore atleast 2.5ghz/core. With atleast 4GB RAM if possible add more to be able to open more tabs without hitting the pagefile..

You may also take advantage of a GPU with multiple monitor outputs so you can view both your source screen and listing screen at the same time.

► For Lead Generation & Data Mining-- You need a multicored machine. A Quadcore atleast 2.5ghz/core. With atleast 4GB RAM if possible add more to be able to open more tabs without hitting the pagefile. You may also take advantage of a GPU with multiple monitor outputs so you can view both your source screen and work screen at the same time.

► For Cold Callers/Appointment Setters, ESL-- Look for a Quadcore atleast 2.5ghz up May require atleast 4GB RAM. Noise cancellation apps & other communication software are resource oriented so if you can add more RAM then do so.

You may also need a dependable headset with noise cancellation. A high resolution webcam and adequate lighting.

► For Transcriptionist-- A dualcore may be able to do the work. But when transcribing videos it may help if there is a GPU in your laptop or install 1 on your desktop to be able to smoothly play the videos.

You may also need a noise reducing headset with no mics. Commonly there are transcription headset readily available. Try to look for one.

► For eMail Handling & eMail Marketing-- A dualcore @3ghz &up would suffice. Best to have atleast 8gb RAM for local desktop management, And atleast 4gb RAM for online based email management. .

Anyway, desktop based email senders may require proxy rotators, account rotators, cache cleaner, cookie deleter and other necessary apps for stealth & scheduling.

► For Social Media Managers & Marketers-- A quadcore laptop is best. With atleast 8gb RAM and built-in GPU with atleast 2GB VRAM for graphics.

Social Media Managers are online almost all the time, So this may require you a second device like a mini-laptop or a windows based netbook.

► For Data Entry, Accountants & Bookeepers-- A Quadcore with atleast 2.5ghz corespeed. If possible 8GB RAM because spreadsheets are resource consuming especially when more tabs are open.

You may also need a GPU that outputs 2 monitors or more.

► For Web Dev's & Programmer-- No need to specify (Not a newbie niche) Alam na nila PC nila. LoL.

► For Video Editors-- Sadly this is the most expensive setup. More cores, more RAMs, more GPU's and more disk space. May require high speed BLACK HDD for Active Data, GREEN HDD for Archived DATA and high speed SSD for Apps & another one for disk cache.

May also require a separate external RENDER BOX with a daughterboard filled with lots of GPU's.
