Desktop Recommendations

Products, prices and specification change constantly. The listed recommendations are for general information only and should not be accepted as accurate at any given time. Always confirm current specifications match your needs.

You may be interested in our Personal Computer Buying Service along with selecting the proper form factor ( Desktop, laptop, All-in-One ) and feature recommendations.


  • Know how much hard drive space you require.
  • Know how large a screen you prefer if looking at an “All-in-One”.

If you don’t have much in the way of pictures and videos saved on your computer, a 256 GB SSD drive is typically more than enough. If you have upwards of 50,000 pictures and videos, chances are a 500GB or 1T drive is in order. These recommendations offer 250 – 1T drives, all SSD. 

Price varies due to features and build quality.

  • Inspiron: Consumer GRade
  • Vostro: Consumer\Business Grade
  • Optiplex: Business Grade
  • XPS: Professional Grade

No matter what model you go with, make sure the desktop comes with the following specifications or greater:

  • i5 Processor
  • 8GB of RAM
  • 250 GB Solid State Drive (SSD)

For some, lesser specifications may be adequate, such as single use computers and few browser tabs open at a time. See our options page outlining specifications you may want to consider.

We receive no compensation from Dell or any other third parties. These recommendations or our personal buying assistance service are meant to replace the custom units we’ve offered for 30 years.
