If you think you need one, then go ahead. Your computer specs are not important though. 

 

Reasons to get one:
 

Stay secure and protect your data

Bypass country blocks, such as copyright material on news websites
Can save you money when booking holidays and flights

Change your IP/ location at a moments notice

Reasons not to get one:
 

Slows down internet speed
Inefficient if you don't know how to use it 
A lot of companies are starting to use anti VPN software

Sometimes airlines put different prices for different regions, e.g when you book from a return ticket from London to Tokyo it might be cheaper in UK than in Japan.

Booking from different geolocation will reduce the price of your tickets. There is a lot of videos out there.
