For a price around $535 at the time of writing a 15.6 inch 6th gen Intel i5 laptop with these specs (especially FULL HD) is a very very good deal!

Asus 15.6-Inch Laptop (2.1 GHz Core i3-5010U,4 GB RAM,500 GB)

Best Budget Drones Under $100

My recommendations this Christmas for small budget drones as gift under $100 are the the Hubsan 4 Channel Quadcopter, the UDI 6 Axis Gyro Quadcopter and the Dromida Omnius Quadcopter. For a price under $100 you can expect a small drone which is easy to fly but doesn’t have the power/features/maneuverability that the more expensive drones have. Of the three drones shown below only the UDI Quadcopter has a HD camera for photo and video but this also means the price is higher than the two without a camera. All three are very good affordable drones to start with, to learn how to fly a drone or just to try out drone flying for fun. Never let kids fly a drone without supervision and first check out the regulations for drone flying in your area.

Best Christmas Trees 2019: (Artificial) Small/Mini – Big/Tall

christmas tree12019. Best (Artificial) Christmas Trees for 2019! Christmas is a time to spend with friends and family. A good looking (artificial) Christmas tree near the hearth is the best way to set the Christmas mood. Also very nice is a smaller table top Christmas tree. On this site you will find only artificial trees because real trees are very difficult to keep fresh and they will shed their needles on the floor. It is also much easier to store an artificial tree for the next year and best thing of all: most are pre-lit!

On this site I give you my recommendations for the best small Christmas trees under $25, which will look very good on a table top or in different locations in the house. After that I present the ‘Big/ Full size’ Christmas trees. A full size Christmas tree is the best place to present the Christmas presents for your loved ones!

Best Desktop Computers 2019 (September/October 2019)

desktop apple-imac

Sep/Oct 2019. Best Desktops For 2019. On this website we review good, affordable Apple, Windows, family, college, gaming and work/business desktops. When you want to buy a new desktop you want specs like a quad-core processor (for example: Intel I3, I5 or I7 or AMD A8 or A10), fast hard-drives SSD or HDD with 1 or 2 TB storage and plenty of DDR4 RAM, and reliable sound and graphics cards so that gaming and heavy duty graphic programs can run smoothly, as well as playing HD movies.

The best PC brands today are Apple, HP, Dell, Sony, Acer and Asus.

(Disclosure: all products/ads on this site are made available in association with our partners amazon.com and Google Adsense, see privacy policy )


What performance can you expect from a desktop computer in 2019?

The speed of a desktop is mainly dependent on the quality of the central processing unit (CPU), how many CPU`s (single core, dual core, quad core), the available RAM (more internal memory is better, today desktops should have at least 4 GB) and the harddisk (SSD is much faster than regular HDD). Today you almost don’t see single core cpu’s anymore. 2 or mostly 4 cores is common. When running programs or games that use a lot of graphic processing the quality of the graphics processing unit (GPU) and/or video-card is very important.The newest Intel i3/i5/i7 cpu’s are the 8th gen coffeelake cpu’s that perform better and have better power efficiency.

Intel vs AMD

When choosing a desktop computer the CPU is an important factor to consider. The CPU is the heart of the system. There are two main processor manufacturers namely Intel and AMD. The intel processors tend to perform slightly better but costs about twice as much compared to the AMD processors. The gain in performance can be noticed in high speed gaming frame rate but is hardly noticeable when using the desktop for normal use. The newest Intel CPUs are the 8th generation.

The Need For Speed

The i3 Intel series and its equivalent AMD processors are used in low end desktops for usual computer tasks like surfing the web, email and administrative tasks. These are the cheapest Intel processors with the lowest processing power. The Intel i5 series and equivalent AMD processors have better performance and can be used for light/medium gaming and medium video editing/ graphical programs. The i7 Intel processors and equivalent AMD processors are the most expensive but get you the most processing power, the best gaming experience and the best basis for heavy graphical programs and video editing.

It is difficult to say that the Intel CPU`s are better than the AMD CPU’s because for the same price as one Intel core you can sometimes get more AMD cores which eliminates the performance gain that single Intel processors show in benchmark tests.

DDR3 or DDR4 RAM

In 2019 desktops mostly have the newest faster DDR4 RAM which is faster and more power efficient than the slightly older/slower DDR3. When deciding on a new desktop I suggest you buy one with DDR4 RAM.

Separate or integrated GPU?

Desktops for normal household use like the Intel I3 and I5 or the AMD A6 and A8 have integrated Graphics in the CPU. You don’t need a separate graphics-card. But for more heavy duty video editing and gaming you want to have the CPU and a separate graphics-card doing its own task. This is more expensive but greatly improves the frame-rate in gaming and speed in video editing.

Tower Desktop, All-in-One or Stick-PC?

Desktop computers are available in three varieties: tower desktops, all-in-one (AiO) desktops and mini-desktops/desktops on a stick. A tower desktop usually does not include a monitor, so you will need to buy one, which adds to the total price, or use one that you already have. In an All-in-One desktop the computer components are build in in the monitor. This makes All-in-One desktops generally more expensive than a tower desktop without monitor. An AiO desktop saves space but it is more difficult to build in extra components if you want to do that. Also, you are stuck with the integrated screen and can not replace it with a new monitor later on. There are advantages and disadvantaged for both choices. Then there are the mini desktops/stick desktops.

On this website you will first find my recommendation for the best (tower and All-in-One) desktops and after that you will find my choices for the best Intel i3, i5 and gaming desktops and the Best desktops for the money (under $500)


(Disclaimer: prices mentioned are accurate at the time of writing, but may have changed)


Best Desktop To Buy 2019: Acer Aspire Desktop, 9th Gen Intel Core i5-9400, 12GB DDR4, 512GB SSD

The best new desktop at the moment in my opinion is the Acer Aspire Desktop PC, Intel Core i5 9th Gen Intel Core i5-9400, 12GB DDR4, 512GB SSD with Keyboard and Mouse.

Why? because it has the combination of the newest 9th Generation power efficient Intel i5 9400 processor (up to 4.1Ghz) together with the newest very fast 12GB DDR4 Memory (2666MHz) memory. DDR4 is in today’s new desktops a must and 12 Gb RAM is more than enough for any demanding graphics program or game at high settings. The very reliable i5 processor has integrated Intel 630 UHD graphics which delivers good performance for everyday use. OS: Windows 10. It has a 512 GB SSD which is fast and gives more than enough storage space.

Price/Quality

You can get all this for a very good price around $500 at the time of writing this post.

Looking at price-quality and value for money this new Acer tower desktop is my choice for ‘best desktop 2019’. It is also one of the best selling desktops on Amazon at the time of writing.

Accessories/ Keyboard and Mouse

Here are some recommendations for a good keyboard and mouse that you need for your new desktop.


Best Intel i3 and equivalent AMD Desktops

These are cheaper desktops for basic tasks like text editing, emailing and surfing the web. Intel i3 and AMD equivalent processors are not the fastest on the block but they do their job properly. The price range for the desktops below, depending on the type of processor, amount of RAM, All-in-one or just the desktop without monitor etc, is between $300 and $580. You can click through to see the specs and price.

Best Intel i5 Desktops 2019

The price for these mid-range desktops are around $600 to $800. With the Intel i5 processor and 8 Gb of RAM they are fast and can perform well when doing multiple tasks or when you have several programs running at the same time. You can do video editing or gaming at a reasonable fps with these desktops at medium settings which makes them the best desktops for a family home or small to medium sized businesses. The Acer AiO desktop and the Apple iMac which I choose as the best All in One and the best Apple desktop also use a i5 processor. The newest i5 processor is the Skylake 6th gen Intel i5 processor.

AMD Desktops

AMD processors have less processing power then Intel processors but are about half the price. So, for the same price you can buy a better AMD processor. For example: for the same price as an Intel i3 processor which is a duo core processor you have a quad core AMD A10 processor which is similar in performance. AMD processors benefit from a good amount of fast RAM memory. Therefore you will normally see more GB RAM installed in the desktop. Especially for graphics in games and video editing you will find better/ separate graphic-cards in AMD desktops then in Intel desktops for the same price because the processor is cheaper.


Best Gaming Desktops to buy

(Click on the thumbnails for more info, specs and buy)

Gaming desktops are high-end desktops and are more expensive than normal desktops because they have a better cpu, more/ faster RAM and a much better video card than regular desktops, which are needed for fast game-play, high fps and excellent graphics in high demanding games.

Best Budget Under $500 Desktops

When you just want a pc to do some everyday email, internet/ social media, watch an occasional movie or do some text editing or light gaming (no MMORPG) then, a cheaper, more affordable budget computer is the best choice. The specs are not as good as the more expensive desktops have, so don`t expect the fastest performance. If speed and specs are not the most important then the following recommendations are everything you need for a good price. Also check out the refurbished desktops which are good value for money.p>

 

An interesting choice under $500 is the LG Chromebase. It is based on Google Chrome and it boots in seconds. All Google apps like Gmail/ youtube/ docs etc run in the Chrome environment so you don’t have to worry about updates, virus protection etc. It has a 16 Gb SSD for fast performance despite the 1.4 GHz processor for an appealing price. A good family budget desktop.

Best Laptops 2019 (September/October 2019)

Aug/Sep 2019. Best Laptops For 2019. What is the best Laptop/Chromebook? On this site we review good, affordable Intel i3, Intel i5, Apple, Windows, family, college, gaming and work/business laptops and Chromebooks. Good laptops today have some serious processing power. The best brands like Apple, Asus, Acer, HP, Dell and Samsung have a sleek design and are lightweight. Who needs a desktop any more?

When buying a new laptop or chromebook there are several factors to take into account. You want to look at the best price (under 400, under 500, under 1000), processor, Chromebook/ iMac or Windows and design. Which laptop is best for you depends on your wishes and what you are going to use your new laptop for (family, student, business).

(Disclosure: all product links on this site are amazon.com affiliate links and the ads are Google Adsense, see privacy policy )

Factors that determine the performance of a laptop computer

The speed of a laptop is mainly dependent on the quality of the CPU, how many cores the CPU has (single core, dual core, quad core), the available RAM (more internal memory is better, today laptops should have at least 4 GB) and the harddisk (SSD is much faster than regular HDD). When running programs or games that use a lot of graphic processing the quality of the video-card is very important. Ultrabooks usually have more RAM and a better cpu and video card than regular laptops.

Intel vs AMD

When choosing a laptop the CPU is an important factor to consider. The CPU is the heart of the laptop. Intel and AMD are the two main processor manufacturers. The Intel processors tend to perform better per core but are about twice as expensive as the AMD processors. For example, for the price of a 2 core Intel processor you can get a 4 core AMD processor.

It is difficult to say that the Intel CPU`s are better than the AMD ones because for the same price as one Intel core you can sometimes get more AMD cores which eliminates the performance gain that single Intel processors show in benchmark tests.

The gain in performance with a more expensive processor/graphics card can be noticed in high speed gaming frame rate but is hardly noticeable when using the laptop for normal use.

What Speed Do You Need?

– The i3 Intel series and its equivalent AMD processors are used in low end laptops for usual computer tasks like surfing the web, email and administrative tasks. These are the cheapest Intel processors with the lowest processing power.

– The Intel i5 series and equivalent AMD processors have better performance and can be used for light/medium gaming and medium video editing/ graphical programs.

– The i7 Intel processors and equivalent AMD processors are the most expensive but get you the most processing power, the best gaming experience and the best basis for heavy graphical programs and video editing.

Ultrabook vs Laptop

An Ultrabook is a fast, ultra thin, ultra lightweight laptop that can only be called “Ultrabook” when it meets specific requirements set by Intel. It has a low energy use so the battery will last a long time, it boots up extremely quickly and is automatically updated. These features are reflected in the price. Ultrabooks are usually more expensive than a regular laptop.

Therefore I present and review on this page the 6 most popular laptops, after that a section with Ultrabooks and after that the best laptops from the top laptop brands.

#4 The New Apple MacBook Pro (with touch bar) and MacBook Air

The New Apple MacBook Pro with touch bar is the most popular Apple laptop, closely followed by the Apple MacBook Air.

The MacBook Pro shown below has a 2560 x 1600 IPS screen, up to 512 Gb (very energy efficient) flash drive, 8 GB LPDDR3 RAM and 4 thunderbolt 3 ports. Those specs make this laptop extremely fast.

A very good laptop for everyday use at home, for a student or as a laptop for your work. It does not have the extreme quality of the Apple MacBooks but has a lot to offer for about 1/5 the of the price :) that is why I put this laptop on the #5 place in the ranking.

This is completely natural and therefore It is also very important not to become obsessed with your weight. But keeping you weight at a healthy level is a good thing to do. With the BMI (Body Mass Index) you can easily figure out if you are leaning towards underweight, obesity or not.

There are many good bathroom scales so buying one is mostly up to your taste and budget. Please check out the best selling bathroom scales and my recommendations for affordable bathroom body weight scales for 2016 on this site.

What Is BMI (body Mass Index) and How to Calculate BMI

BMI = Mass(kg)/(height(m))2

BMI = Mass(lb)/(height(inch))2 X 703

underweight: BMI < 18.5

normal: BMI 18.5 – 25

overweight: BMI 25 – 30

obese: BMI > 30

For example: I weigh 90 kg and my height is 1.8 m.

My BMI = 90/1.82 = 27.8 => overweight

For more info on BMI see: Wiki BMI

A higher blood pressure than average can mean a serious health risk and should be examined by a doctor.

When someone is under stress or has just did a physical exercise the systolic value will spike. This is normal and nothing to worry about when it drops to normal levels when the stress has gone away and when the body is in rest.

Food/Lifestyle and Blood Pressure

Food and lifestyle have a big effect on your bloodpressure. for example: being physically fit, having enough exercise (that means:getting your lazy rear-end of the couch) and eating less salt/salty foods will be very good to normalize your bloodpressure and for your overall health.

With a wrist blood pressure monitor this is important to have consistent and accurate readings.
