Best Desktop Computer Under $500:

The Dell Precision 5520 is one of the most popular budget laptops available today. With its low price tag, it’s a great choice for students or anyone looking for a cheap laptop.

Its Intel Celeron N3050 processor provides enough power to run any program you throw at it without slowing down too much. You get 4GB of RAM, which is plenty for basic tasks like web browsing and emailing. There are no DVD drive or built-in hard disk so you’ll need to purchase one separately if you want to store your files on a separate device. If you’re looking for something with a little more oomph, the Precision 5520 has an AMD A4 dual core processor and 16GB of memory.

Pros: Low Price, Great Performance, Good Screen Quality Cons: No Hard Drive, No DVD Drive

Best All-In-One PC Under $1000:

With the popularity of tablets and smartphones increasing every day, there is a demand for a powerful computer that can handle all your computing needs. While some may argue that the latest tablet doesn’t require a full size desktop anymore (or even a phone), others still prefer to have their own personal computer.

Enter the all-in-one desktop computer. These powerful desktop computers come equipped with a built in screen, allowing you to have everything you need in one neat package. The Lenovo Horizon 2 is the best all-in-one desktop for people who want the best of everything. It comes with a 27 inch touch screen that swivels and folds, allowing it to transform into many different positions.
