How Much Do You Want to Spend?
Before anything else, it’s important to know how much you want to spend.
Desktop PCs can range from a hundred pounds, to thousands of pounds, depending on the model, brand and the PC’s features. If your computer is going to be used for general browsing and streaming, then you don’t want to be spending unnecessary money.
At Stone Refurb, we have a huge range of refurbished desktops for home use from brands such HP, Lenovo, Dell, and more! We’ve even hand-picked a range of refurbished devices below we believe are perfect for home users below.
Where Will the Desktop Be Used?
Home computers can be placed in a number of rooms around a household; a bedroom, living room, kitchen, or maybe you have a home office?
The placement of a computer can determine what size device you may be looking for. If you have a large enough desk space, then you may have room to have a tower, monitor and keyboard. If however, you have limited space, then a micro PC or an all-in-one PC may be the better option. Read more about the different sizes here.
What Features Do Your Home Users Require?
What the computer will be used for will determine what features you will require. Some households may only need the fundamental basics of a desktop PC, while others may have gamers and need to consider extra features such as graphic cards, SSD drive, and multi-core processors.
As a general rule for home users, a good all rounder will have:
- Intel i5 or AMD Ryzen 5 Processor
- 8GB Memory (RAM)
- 240GB SSD Storage
This will give you a good performing PC without breaking the bank.
