In an age of mobility and portability, tablets and laptops have stolen a march over traditional desktops. However, if you are a heavy user or a power user, then desktops are still the only viable option. If you are into gaming or are looking for a powerful machine for work, then you probably want to buy a desktop.

Desktop PCs come with a whole range of configurations. Some of the main metrics to look out for are the processor, the RAM memory, the graphic card, and the memory storage (hard drive capacity). Traditional desktops had a CPU, monitor, and keyboard. Modern desktops now come in an “all-in-one” format. They have the screen and CPU all in one piece.

All-in-one desktop computers are generally more expensive than traditional desktop computers. They can cost around $1000 or significantly more than that threshold. Traditional desktops can easily be bought for less than $500. Either way, you have to be prepared to pay a few hundred or a few thousand dollars. Therefore, getting a discount can prove to be quite significant.

This Black Friday, Best Buy and Walmart have excellent discounts on popular desktop PC models. Check out the deals below for significant savings.
