The lowdown on PCs under $1000

What is it? A desktop PC that costs under $1,000.

Who needs it? Workers who need to access a limited number of non-resource-intensive applications.

What about add-ons? Maximize your RAM. Get at least 512MB or, even better, 1GB.

What's best to avoid? Overpaying for a fast processor. Midrange CPUs are adequate for most uses.

Must-know information? Be sure to evaluate the manufacturer's support and guarantee provisions to avoid additional costs down the line. Minimize the number of different models you have to support.
