Need a computer for transactional lawyers? We have the best computers for transactional lawyers. The average lawyer spends about 22% of their time on research, and 8% of that is spent doing paperwork such as filing, copying and scanning. This type of work can bog down any computer or mobile device so it’s important to get the most out of what you use every day. We recommend getting a unit with at least 8 GB RAM if you spend this kind of time working on research documents and spreadsheets. Also, we recommend getting either an SSD hard drive to speed up boot times and access times or a hybrid hard drive/SSD to allow faster accessing while keeping data storage fast when it’s not needed.
