I can't recommend you a specific computer because I do not know where you are from and do not know what retail outlets are local to you or what your budget is.

When shopping:

1. Look for computers with dedicated graphics cards (typically, these are labelled as Nvidia, Radeon graphics) and avoid Intel Graphics.

2. Make sure the machine in question comes with at least 8GB of RAM or greater.

3. Make sure the PC has a modern processor such as an Intel i5 or i7.

Nerdy stuff

Knowing if a GPU or CPU is fast can be tricky for the uninitiated.

When looking at PC's you are considering buying you can look at 'Benchmarks' for GPU's and CPU's which grade their performance.

Comparing Graphics cards.

Comparing processors.

https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.php

You basically want to find a machine that gives you the best performance both in processing (CPU) and graphics (GPU) for your money.

@cookiepie5 Mahogany: That question is a bit like asking "how long is a piece of string?"

Firstly it depends of what you want from SL.  Hgh quality visuals or just enough to make SL "playable".

My response would be:

Firstly a computer with a reasonably powerful processor from either Intel or AMD(Ryzen).

Secondly a dedicated graphics processor, either from NVidia or AMD(Radeon) (NVidia tends to support the graphics code {OPenGL) better than AMD.  The "on-board" graphics chips from Intel work but are not a good choice if you like good high quality visuals.

Thirdly at least 8GB of dedicated RAM/

There are many properietary PCs on the market and a few quite capable laptops as well, but since SL really need a wired connection a laptop is less favoured.

What I use is...

-ASROCK H87M-ITX
- Intel i5-4670K
- 8GB RAM ; the exact specs/name/etc.. escapes me right now
- Corsair 750W Bronze PSU
- Gigabyte/Nvidia GTX 1050

It lags, sometimes, but, it's an older system too, so, you have to take that into consideration as well.
