    Maybe Forex itself isn't for public consumption.
    I couldn't have said it any better.

    Depends on what kind of software you pplan on running, most charting programs are CPU light but Memory intensive

    probably something like 2gb, 4gb ddr3 ram, no less than triple processor 2.3ghz, and decent graphics card if you're doing more than 1 monitor. when all the charts are up, it'll eat your GPU and RAM

    processor will be more for calculations and tasks , so you can have multiple programs open at the same time, etc.

    Perfect, why would you need anything more than a dual core to trade? You don't need the computer of death to run some simple programs, what you described is like a low-end gaming machine. lol

    well, dual core are on their way out, but if you dont plan on playing a single game, then you can get away with a dual core duo 2 that is 3.0ghz, anything less is just not smart imo. really, the processor will allow for faster calculations, this could mean mere seconds compared to a minute , and could translate into losing $$$$

    I use a Matrox Dual2Go.
    You can add 2 independent monitors to a laptop, cost about 100 quid.
    In all honesty, i only use it when i've taken a lady out for dinner, leave the computer on, 3 screens of charts usually impresses the hell out of em

    shallow i know, i'm embarrased to be me at this point

    Well played, sir. Well played indeed. The ladies love the dual monitors. I hope you get a good return on that investment

    I just bought the new laptop some time ago (about two months) and I still don't like trading on it. The laptop is fine, but internet connection is too slow... I'm thinking about the router in my flat so I can use WiFi, but that will be probably even worse...

    obviously it can be a slippery slope buying new equipment but i just dont understand the mindset of krappy ttrading computers. I also want to puke when i read the words 'my laptop. Laptop=only trade EURUSD. Laptop=destined 2 FAIL.

    People spend 4000chf on custom wheels for theyre range Rovers but wont spend more than 900 on their tools. over 2.5 years its only about 400 a year.

    I seems that your computer is infected by viruses,,
    You do not need to buy new one, dual core is very enough for trade in forex. You should Instal fresh windows..
    Perhaps, you just bought something that make your internet connection more fast...

    I think that using router for wifi is not the main cause of slow internet connection. the main cause is from your providers...
    Let's bought for best providers in your country..
