If you're looking for a new gaming rig to get the most out of the season's biggest blockbusters (did anyone say Skyrim, Battlefield 3 or Modern Warfare 3?) this is where you need to start. While notebooks may be portable and light, nothing can beat the sheer power of an overclocked desktop. Alternatively, maybe you're after a space saving, compact system? An all-in-one machine might be just what you're looking for.
This gaming rig from Acer hits the sweet spot of just below one and a half grand and it features an Intel Core i5-2500 CPU. With a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 530 2GB card and a bundled 23-inch full HD LED LCD display, this rig is targeted at the casual gamer who is looking for a system that can be upgradable as his gaming demands increase in the future. Styled well and practically, the innards are totally self-upgradeable should you wish to invest in a more powerful graphics card, or any other component in the near future. The machine would also be ideal if you're shopping for an affordable gaming-oriented machine for children without spending too much for really powerful machines.
This is a star-buy offering from Acer and it features a Intel Pentium G620 processor with a clock speed of 2.6GHz. It comes bundled with a 20-inch LED LCD display and it features the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium operating system. Suffice to say, if you need a basic desktop system for family usage, this is both affordable and sufficient.
The machine that brought all-in-one machines back into the limelight, the Apple iMac. It may feature notebook components, but they are well put into a very beautiful package of aluminum and glass. There are also several variations for the iMac. It comes in two different sizes, 21.5-inch display or the huge 27-inch display models. Each size also has 2 variations that differ in terms of processors and graphics cards. For the 27-inch machines, you have the choice of either a quad-core Intel Core i5 2.7GHz. or 3.1GHz processor, and an AMD Radeon HD 6770M or 6970M graphics card. The difference in price between the two is about S$400. It also comes with a wide-array of ports, especially the very fast Thunderbolt port. Its display is a very sharp HD LED glossy screen (1980 x 1080 pixels) that is good for everything you need to do on it.
