  • The HP Pavilion p6-2100 is certainly not going to be winning any speed contests among budget desktop systems but with its street price near $400 it does provide a decent experience for anyone that is looking to get a basic desktop PC. Just be warned that a number of features such as peripheral connectors are dropped to help keep the prices down. This makes it more difficult to upgrade the system either internally or externally than competing desktops that cost just a bit more.

    The Gateway SX2865-UR11P is a simple, no-frills all-in-one desktop which comes equipped with an Intel Pentium 2.70GHz Dual-Core Processor G630, 4GB of installed DDR3 memory, a 500GB hard drive, a range of connectivity options and more.

    Saying that this desktop is no-frills may put some people off; however, this is a good thing, as it means that it plays to its strengths.
