Why you should buy a desktop computer
A powerful argument in their favour is that you certainly get much more ‘bang for your buck’, as they give you better performance for your money. Creating documents, working with photo-editing software, gaming and more is so much easier with the extra processing power, not to mention the larger monitor, keyboard and mouse.
No matter what you use the machine for, it is much less arduous working for extended periods with a desktop computer than it is with a laptop.
Finding the right desktop PC for you
We have a huge range of desktop PCs and all at great prices, but how do you narrow down the options and find the ideal machine? The first thing you need to do is to determine exactly what you will be using the computer for.
You don’t need the most expensive and sophisticated machine if you will simply be using it for the internet and word processing. On the other hand, if you want to play the latest best-selling games or download HD movies, then a budget machine will be inadequate. So what kind of computer do you need?
Routine use, word processing and surfing the internet for example, only requires a basic, low-cost machine. Trusted manufacturers such as Zoostorm and Acer create machines that are perfectly suited to your needs.
Best PCs for the home
Stretching your budget just a little will enable you to buy a higher-specification desktop PC that can better cope with the demands of a family.
HP, Acer and Zoostorm all make great-value desktop computers that are ideal for the home. As well as the internet, a home PC can be used for studying, photo and video editing, watching movies, and basic gaming.
Best desktop PCs for offices
Most small businesses will be well served by a mid-range PC. However, when superior performance is required, Dell desktop PCs and the higher-specification HP computers will be ideal.
Best desktop PCs for gaming
If you want to play 3D games or the latest blockbuster FPS, then you will require a fast, high-specification machine that can handle complex graphics. We have a range of PCs designed especially for hardcore gamers.
Compact desktop PCs
Although desktop PCs do take up more space than a laptop, there are now lots of different design options. While the traditional tower is still the most common, small and mini form factors are available. You can also save space with a compact LCD monitor.
