While smartphones, laptops, and tablets have replaced desktops to an impressive extent, desktop computers have not faded away.

While they used to be huge compared to the competition, today’s desktops are a lot smaller than you will expect. There are many advantages a desktop computer offers compared to their more mobile cousins.

Desktop computers have better CPUs, GPU and graphics processor than tablets and laptops for the same prices. The budget that will get you an Intel Core-i3 processor for a computer will get you an Intel Core-i5 in a desktop.

The desktop computer is the choice for people who require powerful computers with little regard for mobility.

It is difficult to get an excellent desktop computer because of the varying cost/quality, which is why we have written a review of the best desktop computers for 2020.
