If you’re getting started with HTML or want to create a CMS website, you might be wondering how fast of a computer you need. Most people are surprised to learn that building a website does not require an expensive computer.
Unless you plan on using high-power software like Adobe Dreamweaver, the computer you’re using now is probably fine. In my opinion, any computer with a modern CPU and at least 128 MB RAM should be able to handle website construction. You can create and edit HTML files in text editors like NotePad. If you’re using a CMS like WordPress or Joomla for your site, any computer that can run a recently-released web browser will suffice.
An older system might stop you from installing certain software, but it shouldn’t limit your creativity.
