There is a notion that home computers are only good for surfing the web and a bit of homework. However, these computers can do more.
You can use them to stream media, edit audio and video, download HD movies and play video games among other tasks. Nevertheless, these computers offer optimal functionality with the above mentioned tasks. Below are three notable home computers to look out for in 2016.
The Acer Predator is one of the best home computers for sale in terms of performance, processor power and affordability. The computer is offered with dedicated graphics and 5 USB ports. It has excellent components and its speed is impressive making it a top choice for 2016.
The base model Predator operates on top-tier Intel i5-4590 processor. On its own, the CPU can perform any task that you throw at it at home but the Predator adds you a mid-grade graphics card for those who do graphical processing at home.
Like many other modern models found at your quality computer store, the Predator comes ready for upgrades. The Predator is offered with a SATA 1TB hard disk and 8GB installed RAM. You can expand the RAM up to 32GB. However, you do not need more than 8GB to run a 64-bit home computer.
The Acer Predator comes with an SD card slot and a VGA monitor port. With all new desktop PCs, you are offered 1 year warranty.
The XPS offers you a great home computer for homework, watching HD movies and playing video games without taking thousands of dollars from your bankroll. It is a versatile computer that gives you the option of upgrading components rather than buying a new machine.
The Dell XPS is a strong computer though not the best for gaming. It uses Intel i5-4460 coupled with 19th-tiered Nvidia GeForce GT 720 Graphics card to up video streaming capabilities. You can also upgrade the computer by adding high quality components to make it better for gaming.
The XPS comes with 1TB hard drive and 8GB installed RAM. Though this computer can run on this RAM perfectly, you can add more by installing new RAM sticks when needed. The hard drive spins the internal disk at 7200 rpm. Ensure the monitor you buy has a DVI port. Unlike the Predator (reviewed above), the XPS comes with 10 USB ports (6 USB 3.0 and 4 USB 2.0 ports). New computers come with 1 year warranty.
The Lenovo K450e offers style and functionality; it is a computer for all your home needs. Though it is less powerful than the Predator and the XPS, it still remains one of the best home computers to look for in 2016.
The base model uses Intel i5 processor which is upgradable to Intel i7. This means that the computer can run any task you throw to it without slowing. It utilizes integrated graphics. When playing video games, you need to adjust the settings to average to get a smooth experience.
Like other computers in its class, the K450e comes with 1TB hard drive and 8GB installed RAM. You can, however, install more RAM if needed. It is offered with 6 USB ports; 4 USB 3.0 ports and 2 USB 2.0 ports.
