About

Hardware recommendation posts should discuss how to make hardware decisions for oneself. Direct shopping recommendations are off-topic and will be closed, so be very careful posting hardware recommendations.

A good hardware recommendation post is in the general form of "how can I figure out what hardware will fit my needs" manner. Simply asking for a list of products is a shopping recommendation and will be closed as off-topic.

Be very careful when posting hardware recommendations. Make sure that your question will be helpful to more than just yourself (otherwise it's too localized), and that it can generate useful discussion of how to figure out the right hardware for a given situation.
