Lenovo K450e quad-core desktop PC for $650
On the inside, this model sports a fourth generation quad-core 3.6GHz Intel Core i7-4790 CPU, integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600, 16GB of DDR3 RAM (1600MHz), a 2TB solid-state hybrid drive, a DVD burner, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi support. And if you want to expand it even further, the process is as easy as pie.
In fact, you don’t even need tools to upgrade this cleverly designed machine. Just slip off the cover, and slide in a new drive. Want to be able to play the latest games? Just slap in a discrete GPU. And if you need even morememory, you can easily expand to 32GB. Better yet, it comes with four USB 3.0 ports, so you can simply plug-in external hard drives and peripherals as you see fit. With a few minor upgrades over the next few years, you can easily keep your machine at peak performance. And thanks to Lenovo’s top-notch engineering, the experience is never a hassle.
Now, this model ships with Windows 8.1 (64-bit) installed by default, so you’ll have the latest operating system version available at the time of purchase. However, Microsoft has promised that Windows 7 and Windows 8 users alike will be eligible to upgrade to Windows 10 at no additional cost later in 2015. Alternately, you could wipe your drive, and install your favorite Linux distro instead. Whichever OS you decide works best for you, it’s nice to have so many choices.
If you’re in need of a powerful workhorse PC to get work done on a budget, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better value than this desktop. While a traditional desktop PC doesn’t offer the same portability of a laptop or tablet, you simply can’t beat this kind of price-performance ratio. And with a little care and some occasional upgrades, this could easily last you five years or more.
