The Dream Computer for Online Poker Players

If you’re a casual poker player who likes to log on and play a few hands every week, pretty much any laptop, desktop, or even tablet device will more than suffice, especially if you just play one or two tables at a time. For more serious online players, though, you’ll definitely need to pay a little more attention to your setup, as top players can easily log 500,000 or more hands over the course of the year. You’ll need a machine that can handle that sort of volume but also one that lets you <a href="http://www.pokerlistings.com/play-poker">play poker</a> as efficiently as possible, with small improvements here and there adding up over that many hands.
