  • Aside from its mostly unnecessary abundance of RAM, the XPS 8700 Special Edition is a well-rounded performance desktop that's a good fit as a family PC or a dorm-room power tower. It's powerful enough to handle pretty much any task that you throw at it, from high-end media creation to high-resolution gaming. And its desktop form factor and upgradability mean it won't have to be replaced as soon as one of the components gets too slow or fails.


  • For a basic work desktop, the Dell OptiPlex 9020 All-in-One is a solid choice, handling day-to-day computing tasks with ease and bringing Windows 8 and touch to the workplace.

    Great price for a great computer, this is an excellent machine fast, beautiful display. It's attractive and very functional. Screen is big and clear and bright. So, this Dell Inspiron I660-3034BK is low priced, but high powered, at least for what I need it to do. I did comparison shopping both online and at places like Best Buy, Office Max, and Office Depot before choosing and buying this desktop. It was at a great price!


  • The Dell Axim X51 series offers a nice combination of features, but we were disappointed by the subpar battery life.


  • The Alienware X51 gaming desktop goes after the console gamer that wants a bit more out of their gaming experience.


  • The Alienware X51 proves that big things can come in small packages, offering excellent gaming performance in a slim chassis.
