The Best Desktop PCs As of September 2009

1.Compaq Presario CQ5110F: We have always been a fan on Compaq desktops due to their competitive price tag and great value for money. The Compaq Presario CQ5110F comes with a series of impressive specs. There is a 2.5Ghz processor (AMD Athlon), 3GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive. It also has a NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE Graphics card. It ships with a keyboard and a mouse. Currently, it retails for just around $328. What a bargain!

2.Apple Mac Mini MB463LL/A Desktop:This model has a 2.0Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM and a 120GB hard drive. The specs are not exactly the best that money can buy, but the star features of this model are found in its design and form. The CPU unit is just 2″ tall and measure 6.5″ inches square. Despite its lackluster specs, we are just crazy over its tiny size and stylish design. At the time this article was written, it retails for around $577 each; a small premium for style we say!

3.Gateway SX2800-01 Desktop: Gateway is also another popular brand that is synonymous with great value. This model has a 2.33Ghz Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 processor, 4GB of RAM and a huge 640 GB hard drive. The competent specs of the Gateway SX2800-01 are also complimented by its excellent performance. It did a really good job in running heaving applications such as Photoshop and its multitasking speed is faster than many other desktop models in its class. This is one of our favorite desktop models this year (thus far). It currently retails for around just $439 each. It even comes with a pair of stereo speakers.
