Is your computer running a little slower than usual? Are you ready for an upgrade?
If so, there’s good news: Upgrading to a faster, sleeker and more personalized desktop computer doesn’t have to be a hassle. It can be quick, safe and affordable — if you know where to look.
To get you started, here’s a quick look at seven of today’s most powerful desktop computers and the features they offer
HP Pavilion Wave
HP’s Pavilion Wave might look different than your average desktop computer, but it outperforms most other models on the market. It’s unique fabric cover masks a low-power quad-core Core i5 processor and a 1TB hard disk that can handle whatever work you throw at it. Plus, the Wave also serves as a stylish speaker you can display proudly anywhere in your home.
Not every desktop needs to be the smallest or flashiest in the display case, and the HP Z220 is a standard example of understated excellence. What this affordable model lacks in modern graphics capabilities, it more than makes up for in reliability and customization options.
Apple iMac 5K
With its famously brilliant retina display and its solid software, Apple’s iMac 5K is a great choice for those who can comfortably afford the price tag. Its retina display is widely considered to be one of the best, but beauty and function aren’t mutually exclusive in this case. Apple upped the power of its flagship desktop with a 3.7GHz 6-core 9th-generation Intel Core i5 processor.
Dell Inspiron Gaming Desktop (5680)
Calling all gamers: This one’s for you. Dell’s Inspiron Gaming Desktop comes with a “9th Gen Intel® Core™ processor, VR-ready graphics and a striking design built for optimal cooling and powerful performance,” according to its website. And with memory capabilities up to 32GB DDR4 2666 MHz, you’ll be able to multitask without any fear of crashing.
Corsair One i160
If aesthetics are your thing, you’re going to love this sleek desktop computer. The Corsair One i160 is beautiful, and it debunks the myth that gaming computers must be bulky and loud. This sleek, quiet option can handle games and productivity tools — all while providing a new, colorful conversation piece to your home office.
Dell OptiPlex 3050
Dell’s OptiPlex 3050 is the ideal option for someone looking to upgrade office desktops. It’s affordable, highly customizable and takes up minimal desk or floor space. It also comes with ample memory storage and plenty of USB ports.

Find The Best Desktop Computer For You
When you’re ready to upgrade your desktop computer, look for a retailer with competitive pricing, speedy delivery, and extended warranty options — and don’t be afraid to look at refurbished options. They come with comparable performance and durability and are often a fraction of the price of new models.
