desktop ACER

Apr/May 2021. Best Desktops For 2021. On this website we review good, affordable Apple, Windows, family, college, gaming and work/business desktops. When you want to buy a new PC you will look for specs like a quad-core or even a octa-core processor (for example: Intel I5, I7, I9 or AMD A8 or A10 etc), fast hard-drives SSD or HDD with plenty of storage and DDR4 RAM. Also important are 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 )

On this website you will first find my recommendation for the best (tower and All-in-One) desktops and then my choices for the best Intel i3, i5, AMD and gaming PC.


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


Best Desktop For The Money 2021: Acer Aspire Desktop, i5-10400 6-Core Processor, 12GB 2666MHz DDR4, 512GB SSD

The best PC for the money at the moment in my opinion is this Acer Aspire Desktop, with 10th Gen Intel Core i5-10400.

It has the combination of the newest 10th Generation power efficient Intel i5 10400 processor together with the newest very fast 12Gb DDR4 Memory. The processor has a Turbo Boost up to 4.3 GHz and the RAM runs at 2666Mhz. 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 $550 but this could have changed in the meantime. When I look at price-quality and value for money this ACER tower desktop is my choice for ‘best desktop 2021’. It is also one of the best selling desktops on Amazon at the time of writing.

Best All-In-One Desktop: 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. It has plenty of space for your movie/music collection. Because of the high quality specs and the integrated screen this all in one desktop is more expensive than a stand alone desktop.

Newest HP Desktop Bundle with 27″ Monitor, Intel Core i5-7400, 8GB RAM, 2TB + 16GB HD

The best Desktop bundle today is this Newest HP Desktop Bundle with 27 inch Full HD Monitor, Intel Core i5-7400 Processor with 8 GB DDR4 memory. The monitor is a HP 27 inch Full HD Monitor (1920 x 1080), Graphics processor: the integrated Intel HD Graphics. HDD: 2 TB 7200 rpm SATA + 16 GB Intel® Optane™ Memory for storage acceleration.

The 2nd best AiO desktop today is the Newest Flagship Dell Inspiron 23.8″ All-in-One Full HD Touchscreen Anti-glare Desktop. It has the latest Intel Intel i5-10210U processor with Intel Integrated UHD Graphics. This processor can handle multitasking and medium heavy graphics programs/games/movies in Ultra HD running in the Windows 10 OS easily. 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. For this price a desktop with these specs, including a Dell 23.8 inch Full HD touchscreen monitor is a very very good deal! You get the whole package with everything you need to start right away. For that reason this desktop is also one of the best selling All-in-One desktops for family, college and work/business.

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 performs similar. AMD processors benefit from a good amount of fast RAM memory. Therefore you will normally see more GB RAM installed in the AMD 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. 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. This eliminates the performance gain that single Intel processors show in benchmark tests. AMD scores better on graphics processing than Intel. That is why you find AMD processors and gpu’s mostly in gaming desktops.




Best Gaming Desktops 2021 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. This is 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 Desktops – Budget Under $500

When you just want a pc to do some everyday email, internet/ social media, watch an occasional movie or do some text editing then, a cheaper, more affordable budget computer is the best choice. The specs are not as good as the more expensive desktops have. So therefore don`t expect the fastest performance. If speed and specs are not the most important then the following recommendations are everything you need. And all that for a good price. Also check out the refurbished desktops which are good value for money.


What specs do you need in a desktop computer?

Speed is a very important spec. 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). You almost don’t see single core cpu’s anymore these days. 2 or 4 cores is common with 6 to 8 cores for the more expencive and gaming pcs. 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 and 11th gen cpu’s that perform better and use less power.

Intel vs AMD

When choosing a PC 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 advantage 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 10th and 11th generation. AMD processors get more out of a good GPU and RAM running on a high frequency.Therefore you mostly see AMD processors in gaming rigs.

Separate or integrated GPU?

Desktops for normal household use 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. Then the CPU and GPU can do their own task. This is more expensive but greatly improves the frame-rate in gaming and speed in video editing.


The Need For Speed

The i3 Intel series and its equivalent AMD processors are used in low end desktops for usual computer tasks. These are activities like surfing the web, email and administrative tasks. Intel Core i3 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.

DDR4 RAM

In 2021 all new desktops have the new fast 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.


Tower Desktop or All-in-One?

Desktop computers are available in two varieties: tower desktops and all-in-one 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.

Best Laptops 2021 (February/March 2021)

Feb/Mar 2021. Best Laptops For 2021. 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

Speed 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.


Ultrabooks For 2020

Here you find the best Ultrabooks available today.


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.


AMD Laptops

AMD processors have less processing power then Intel processors but they are about half the price. 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. The AMD A10 and i3 processors are similar in performance but AMD processors run better with a good amount of fast RAM memory. Therefore you will normally see more GB RAM installed in the laptop. You will find better/ separate graphic-cards in AMD laptops then in Intel laptops for the same price because the processor is cheaper. This is useful for better graphics in games and video editing.

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

This Asus 15.6 inch laptop is one of the most popular laptop today. This is very logical because the specs are very good when looking at the price: around $350 at the time of writing.  For that price you get: the Intel i3-5010U 2.1 GHz processor, 4 Gb RAM and a 15.6 inch FULL HD screen. 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.

Gadget Gifts For Adults: Drones

Best Budget Drones Under $100

My recommendations 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 Weather Stations around $150

For the best weather station around $150 range I recommend the Oregon Scientific WMR86 Backyard Pro Wireless Weather Station WMR86. Some of the specs include: weather forecast (sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, rainy, snowy), display of Indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, wind speed and direction, barometric reading with bar graph, rainfall reading with bar graph.

It has a integrated wind sensor tower for easy set up and atomic time, so you always have the exact time and never have to adjust for Daylight Saving Time. It also shows the moon phase.

An other very good option for around $170 (at the time of writing) is the AcuRite Pro Wireless color weather station. It has a beautiful color display and integrated rain, wind, temp and humidity meter. This wireless weather station streams real-time data including the moon phase, indoor comfort level, “feels like”” temperature and more. Highly recommended especially when looking at the low price for this much quality!

Best Tablets Tablet Computers 2020 (November/December 2020)

Best Tablets Samsung Galaxy TabOct 2017. Best tablets For 2017! Tablets are the best! If you are going to use your tablet every day, you better buy a good one! When looking for an addition to my main computer, I found that a good tablet computer is easy to take with you and has some serious processing power for browsing the web. Tablets have many advantages over laptops and pc`s. Most of all: they are very portable and lightweight. Tablets today are affordable and have good specs. The tablets and accessories on this site are the best rated for 20157.

The most wished for tablets are the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7, 10 and 12 inch tablets, the iPad and the Kindle (fire) and popular brands are Kindle(fire), Apple, Samsung, Sony, Asus and Microsoft.

Tablets are not suitable to play heavy graphic games like MMORPG`s or work with video-editing programs. You can play many single player games, surf the internet/ email/ Skype on a tablet and there are many apps available for Google`s Android as well as Apple`s iOs. I use a tablet mainly as a addition to my laptop.

New/ Upcomming Smartphones 2020

 


Which Smartphone Is The Best Choice?

That depends on what you want to use your smartphone for

The functions that are most important for myself in a smartphone in 2020 are:internet/ social media, making a phone call and the alarm clock. I use Internet and social media on my phone mostly when I am traveling by train and at home where I have wifi.I have a prepaid phone so I don’t want to use the internet on the 3g/4g network too much. An other choice you have to make is between an android/ Apple/ windows phone and if you want a more expensive high end smartphone or if you are satisfied with a cheaper alternative that covers the basic functions.

#1 Smartphone 2017: Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

The Best Android Smartphone On The Market Today

In my opinion: the new Samsung S7 Edge is despite the iPhone 6 (plus) the best smartphone 2015. This has mostly to do with the price/quality. The Galaxy S7 Edge and the iPhone 6 are both awesome smartphones but the S7 Edge has a display on three sides and specs that Apple will have to match with the iPhone 7 to stay in the competition. It certainly is the best android smartphone with a very beautiful design, fast and reliable. The best smartphone you can buy at the moment.

Specs: DISPLAY: 5.5 inches, 1440 x 2560 pixels Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors, CPU: Dual-core 2.15 GHz Kryo & dual-core 1.6 GHz Kryo – Quad-core 2.3 GHz Cortex-A53 + quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A53

 #1 Used/Contract Smartphone: Samsung Galaxy S5

The Galaxy S5 is a very, very good smartphone for a now ridiculously affordable price. The link goes to the Verizon contract Galaxy S5, but AT&T and Sprint are also available.


#2) Apple iPhone 6 16 GB

The Best Apple (iPhone) Smartphone 2016/2017

The iPhone 6 is an awesome smartphone and will be the best iPhone until the next iPhone is available. Unfortunately the iPhone is quite expensive while the basic model still has only 16GB, which is not much for the money. That is why the iPhone 6 is #2 in this list and not #1.

iPhone 6/ 6 Plus review and Specs

With the iPhone 6 Apple for the first time produced a smartphone with a ‘big’ screen. The 4.7 inch screen is considerably larger than previous iPhones, but thanks to the new design with rounded finished edges it feels comfortable in the hand. The screen is again beautiful, with high contrast and high brightness and thanks to the new Apple A8 chip the iPhone 6 is fast and has a good battery life.

The camera has been improved somewhat , especially in low light conditions. An other positive point is the new version of iOS, which provides Apple users and developers more choices and options.

If you can afford the iPhone 6 and you are an Apple enthusiast, then with the iPhone 6 you get one of the best smartphones currently available.

Specs iPhone 6:

4.7″ LED-backlit IPS LCD Multi-Touchscreen w/ Shatter-Proof Glass and Oleophobic CoatingiOS 8, Dual-Core 1.4 GHz Cyclone (ARM v8-based) Processor, Chipset: Apple A8, PowerVR GX6650 (hexa-core graphics) Graphics8 Megapixel Camera (3264 x 2448 pixels) w/ Autofocus, dual-LED (dual tone) Flash + Front-Facing 1.2 Megapixel Camera, 720p, burst, HDRInternal Memory: 16GB, 1GB RAM

The iPhone 6 Plus has an even bigger screen, too big for my taste, which is difficult to handle with one hand. For people interested in the iPhone 6 Plus: here is the link to Amazon

Best HTC Smartphones

The HTC One M9

HTC is a very strong South Korean brand that is able to give competition with the HTC One M9 to the two big players in the smartphone market, Samsung Galaxy and Apple iPhone. The mobiles that HTC produced are high quality but a little less expensive than the latest Galaxy and iPhone series, making it a much appreciated alternative.
