Which home computer is right for you?

The best way to choose a home computer is to consider the benefits of each type of device.

The best desktop computers have great functionality and lots of power. Desktops are easy to upgrade as your needs change. Desktops allow you to choose a monitor separately from the computer, giving you even more options for ways to interact with your device. They are also the most customizable PCs, making it easy to get a machine that suits your needs exactly. With these factors in mind, a desktop is a solid option for households that want more flexibility configuring their home computer set up without compromising processing power.

Mobility is the key benefit of laptops. Devices on the market today are smaller and lighter than ever, while still packing a lot of processing power and the latest graphics cards when necessary. Laptops are a great choice when you need a computer you can take with you or move between rooms at home. For family viewing, you can attach a larger monitor to a smaller laptop. Students and frequent travelers can benefit from the portability of a laptop.

All-in-ones reduce clutter and save space by packing all the computer components into a single, large-screen display. By connecting peripherals via Bluetooth, the best all-in-one computers offer single-cord connectivity that eliminates the usual tangle of cords. All-in-one computers feature large-screen displays that are great for watching movies or viewing multiple documents side-by-side. For those with limited space, all-in-ones offer a compact solution that enables households to tackle a wide range of tasks and activities.
