    Thank you Tdol. Does 'would' in your response mean 'used to'?

    It does not. It has a conditional idea: "I would say a powerful CPU (if I were to talk about the power of the CPU)."
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
