Best Desktop Computers 2020 (August/September 2020)


desktop ACER

Aug/Sep 2020. Best Desktops For 2020. 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 specs do you need in a desktop computer in 2020?

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 10th gen 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 per core 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 9th and 10th 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 and higher Intel processors and equivalent AMD processors are the most expensive. These will 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. 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.

DDR4 RAM

In 2020 desktops mostly have the newest faster DDR4 RAM which is faster and more power efficient than the older/slower DDR3. When deciding on a new desktop I suggest you definitely buy one with DDR4 RAM.

Separate or integrated GPU?

Desktops for normal household use like the Intel I3 and I5 or the AMD A8 and A10 have integrated Graphics in the CPU. You don’t need a separate graphics-card. But for more graphics demanding 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 or All-in-One?

Desktop computers are available in two varieties: tower desktops (in large, medium and small form) and all-in-one (AiO) desktops. A tower desktop usually does not include a monitor. You will need to buy one separately 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.

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, AMD and gaming desktops and the Best desktops for the money.

Best Desktop To Buy 2020: Acer Aspire Desktop, i5-10400 6-Core Processor, 12GB 2666MHz DDR4, 512GB SSD

The best new desktop at the moment in my opinion is the Acer Aspire Desktop, with 10th Gen Intel Core i5-10400, 12GB of DDR4 and 512GB SSD.

Why? because it has the combination of the newest 10th Generation power efficient Intel i5 10400 processor (with Turbo Boost up to 4.3 GHz) 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 average settings. When you want to play more demanding games or at a higher setting then you probably want to install a separate graphics card or buy a gaming desktop. The RAM is up-gradable to 32 Gb. 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 gives a fast boot and gives you more than enough storage space for all your data. It comes with a keyboard and mouse.

Price/Quality
Price at time of writing this post: around $570 but this could have changed in the meantime. Looking at price-quality and value for money this ACER tower desktop is my choice for ‘best desktop 2020’. It is also one of the best selling desktops on Amazon at the time of writing.

Best All-In-One Desktop for 2020: Acer Aspire AIO Desktop, 23.8 inches Full HD, 9th Gen Intel Core i5-9400T, 12GB DDR4, 512GB SSD Desktop

The best All-in-One desktop today in my opinion is the easy to use Acer Aspire Z24-890-UA91 AIO Desktop. It has a 23.8 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) widescreen Edge to Edge LED Back lit Display, the newest 9th Generation Intel Core i5 9400T Processor (Up to 3.4GHz) and incredibly fast 12GB DDR4 Memory. This new Intel I5 processor combined with the 12 Gb DDR4 RAM makes and the 512 Gb SSD make this a desktop to be reckoned with. It responds very fast and can handle multi tasking and gaming on average settings without breaking a sweat. The 512 Gb SSD Boot is fast and reliable and has plenty of space for your movie/music collection. OS: Windows 10. Because of the high quality specs and the integrated screen this all in one desktop is more expensive than a stand alone desktop.

The 8 GB DDR4 RAM in combination with the 256 GB SSD makes this a desktop that boots and responds very fast. It also includes integrated/built-in stereo speakers tuned with Waves MaxxAudio solution for excellent sound and a wireless keyboard and mouse.

I have chosen this Dell AiO desktop to be the 2nd best AiO desktop mainly because of the price/quality. Dell is a respected manufacturer of quality desktops and for the price a desktop with these specs, including a Dell 23.8 inch Full HD touchscreen monitor is a very very good deal!

Accessories/ Keyboard and Mouse

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


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 can get 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 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>

 

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 2020

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 9th gen Intel i5 processor.

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 Ultrabooks 2020 (September/October 2020)

Sep/Oct 2020. Best Laptops For 2020. 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

Sspeed of a laptop is mainly dependent on the quality of the CPU. The number of cores the CPU has (single core, dual core, quad core) and the available RAM (more internal memory is better, today laptops should have at least 4 GB) makes a big difference. And also the type of harddisk (SSD is much faster than regular HDD) is important for speed. When running programs or games that use a lot of graphic processing the quality of the video-card is the main factor for speed. 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?

– 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.

– Intel 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 most popular laptops, after that a section with Ultrabooks and after that the best laptops from the top laptop brands.
