On the hardware side, for the normal users, you only should know the CPU and computer RAM.
- 20 GHz: the speed of (CPU) chips.
(4cpus): CPU number.
So we can calculate the actual speed of CPU is 4 x 2. 2 = 8. 8 GHz.
Ram is : 4096 / 1024 = 4gb. (1gb = 1024 mb)
Step 3: Refer to the following table to find the appropriate version

If you want to use your computer to play games or install a lot of software for your studies, we recommend you to use the 64-bit version to get the most out of your hardware and a better experience.
In current versions of Windows, we consider Windows 7 to be the most stable version and it is very compatible with the hardware of the computer.
