Nice Desktop with a moderately fast processor
I bought this machine for my grandson from Amazon, LLC. So far I like most everything about the computer, it has windows 8 which should be fine when the update comes out the end of this month. There is limited bloatware on this machine which I removed. It has McAfee which I removed and then turned on windows defender much better and free. The thing was that while the box was sealed by Lenovo when I opened the box you could tell it was a re-seal.
Built-in Wi-Fi & optional Blu-ray
Lenovo continues to make strides in the slim desktop PC category with the IdeaCentre H520s. It combines a slim space-saving design with ease of use and a range of entertainment features. It features an Intel Core i5 CPU, 6GB of RAM, built-in wireless connectivity and a 1TB hard drive. The slim design does limit future expansion, but it comes with everything most users will need.
Lenovo IdeaCentre H520
Lenovo IdeaCentre H520 is a high-tier desktop suitable for power-seeking users who don't want to pay too much for their computer. Graphics performance is subpar so gamers would do better with another desktop, but other power users would definitely enjoy this Lenovo.
Great price for a beginner gaming computer!
I've been searching for a computer around the $500 price for a while and I pulled the trigger on this system. I play League of Legends, Path of Exile, SC2, and a few other games that don't require expensive video cards to run. The computer worked right out the box and boots up REALLY fast! The blue LED fan matches the blue trim of the case, which I like a lot. Not much else I can say, except I recommend anyone that is on a $500 budget to get this computer.
1080p HD screen, 15-month McAfee protection
If you have a need for composite AV in and VGA in on a touch screen all-in-one desktop, the Inspiron One 23 should be on the top of the list. If you don't need this admittedly specialized set of inputs, then there are other more attractive AIO PC choices out there for the same amount of money.
Best desktop - ever!
We've been Dell customers for 7+ years and our old laptops were - well - tired. Purchased this All in One and it absolutely rocks! Fast and huge screen with bluetooth keyboard and touchscreen. I purchased a Dell 17" laptop, which I also like, but I wish we bought 2 x All in Ones.
Great for the price you pay
I was looking for a PC I could customize with my own parts but, with it having decent parts at stock and I have to say, you cant get better for the price. Don't be discouraged by the i3 Processor, it is WTFast! At over 3.0 GHZ it can handle almost anything! I did change the 4 GB to 8 and changed the graphics card but, if you are a person looking for a PC you can upgrade that has good parts at the beginning, this is for you!
Has faster integrated graphics
The new Mac mini continues to build on the solid foundation set by the 2011 model. If you prefer a Mac desktop computer to a laptop, and/or you don't want to be confined to the glossy 21.5- or 27-inch displays that come with the iMac, the Mac mini is a capable system for most tasks. The quad-core Core i7 processor and the larger storage capacity make the £679-799 Mac mini more attractive - plus you £200.
More than powerful enough for most tasks
A lovely machine that has so many uses it's almost staggering. It works as a desktop machine, it works as a media centre. It's not hugely cheap, but it is still the cheapest way to get into Apple computers, without buying reconditioned or second-hand. But as a computer, it's very likable and is well-placed to snatch the desktop crown away from those slightly uglier Windows boxes.
Lots Of Space For Internal Upgrades
For anyone who needs a computer system with a dedicated graphics system either for gaming or graphics work, the Cyberpower Gamer Ultra 2073 is a tough deal to beat. For under $500, it comes with an AMD 5450 graphics card with a full 1GB of memory. The system also comes free of bloatware many companies add to the OS.
Clean, tidy looks and a Blu-ray writer
The CyberPower Ultra HTPC is an all-round system with clean, tidy looks and a Blu-ray writer that may prove useful. Sadly it's also far from quiet and only standard-definition TV facilities are included, although its AMD processor gives it a decent boost in 3D graphics performance allowing it to double up as a gaming PC.
Well-built, water-cooled and pre-overclocked
While not as much of a bargain as the previous CyberPower system that came through our labs, the Gamer Ultra Perseus presents good value for a well-built, water-cooled and pre-overclocked AM3 system. However, though the water cooling is quieter than a conventional air cooler it still isn't truly silent, and if you actually want the best bang for your buck when it comes to gaming performance you'd be better off dropping the water cooling for a second graphics card.
Good computer for a good price
This compact computer is powerful and is more than enough for any everyday task you could perform including photo and video editing. It is convenient to place on top of a desk. It comes with Windows 8 for which I had low expectations; but surprisingly I enjoyed it. It is similar in the desktop functionality to Windows 7 but it builds on it by giving the option to switch to metro browsing which is a simple way to open up apps. The startup time is super fast.
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.
Plenty of memory and hard drive space at an affordable price
The HP Pavilion p6-2350 review is a good buy for people that wants a good solid desktop computer that will give them years of service. With a big and reputable company like HP, you know that they have a quality product.
4 GB of RAM with easy expansion to 8 GB
The HP Pavilion p6-2100 desktop is an excellent setup for an entry-level system. It has plenty of power for your daily activities and if you do not wish to invest tons of money into it, it the perfect choice. Be it office or multimedia, the HP Pavilion p6-2100 desktop will handle the task you give it. The fact that it also packs plenty of expansion ports, gives it good upgrade capabilities and components are not expensive at all.
Good performing PC with good value
Overall the HP Pavilion p6-2280ea desktop PC feedback from users points to a good performing PC with good value. The graphics card could be improved but can be upgraded, though from our experience the combination of the i5 CPU and 1GB of graphics RAM has played some high end games ok, so it may be worth a try for gaming and then upgrading in the future.
