The 8 best all-in-one pcs to buy in 2018 gas efficient cars under 5000

With a simple, yet sleek design, Dell’s Dell Inspiron 3464 i3464-3038BLK-PUS series is a superb choice for anyone looking for a wallet-friendly all-in-one. Right off the bat, the front-facing speaker grill offers great sound for media consumption, with all the essential ports tucked away on the back. Outfitted with 802.11ac, a 23.8-inch full HD wide-angle display and Intel Core i3 processor with 8GB of RAM, performance is more than good enough for day-to-day work. This isn’t the computer you’d buy if Photoshop is your main task, but it is a great computer for the whole family to do homework on, balance the checkbook and surf the Web.

Budget-pricing does mean some tradeoffs, but the fortunate news is that overall performance isn’t one of them. There’s just 500GB of hard drive space as opposed to the semi-default standard of 1TB. Additionally, there’s no touchscreen, which may or may not is a deal breaker. At the sub-$650 price point, Dell still includes a wireless mouse and keyboard and that makes it even more attractive.

Asus is a brand more often associated with affordable laptops, but after scouring their offerings, we were able to find a premium all-in-one configuration that’s a strong contender — even when pitted against industry giants like Apple and Dell. The Z240 comes with a Core i7 processor that offers speeds of 2.4 GHz, and turbo boost capabilities up to 4.0 GHz. There’s 32GB of Ultra Performance RAM onboard, plus a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce graphics card with its own 5GB of RAM. Basically, that all amounts to a lightning-fast machine at a respectable price.

There’s plenty of onboard storage with a 2TB standard hard drive and 512GB of solid-state storage, giving you speed, capacity and versatility. Keep in mind that the nearly 24-inch display is also a touchscreen, giving it a major leg up on a couple of the others on the list. Additionally, an HD camera, six-speaker audio, Bluetooth, and plenty of physical inputs and outputs (one USB 3.1 Type-C, four USB 3.0, one USB 2.0 and two HDMI out) round out the machine’s versatility.

While Windows 10 and Apple’s Mac certainly rule the roost, Google’s Chrome OS isn’t lying down and, with the addition of Android apps earlier this year, the platform is ramping up to be a true contender. Released in mid-2016, Acer’s Chromebase offers a change of pace from the software you’ve known for years with something that’s arguably far easier to learn and perfect for both new and older computer users. Based on Google’s Chrome browser, the Chromebase is powered by an Intel Celeron 3215U processor, 4GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD. Unlike Windows and Mac, the Chromebase strength is in the cloud, so the lack of hard drive memory is rarely a concern.

The 1920 x 1080 23.8-inch Full HD edge-to-edge display offers 10-point touch and a variety of ports on the rear, including USB 3.0. The included HD conferencing camera helps Acer position the Chromecase as perfect for the boardroom or the home with video options like Google+ and, ultimately, Skype through the inclusion of Google’s Android apps. The two stereo speakers provide more than enough volume to be heard on a conference call, as well as play movies or YouTube clips without missing a beat, while the four microphones make sure the other side hears you just as clearly. Ultimately, the Chromebase provides an interesting conundrum. Can you do your work or personal stuff in a browser? For some, the lack of dedicated apps like they’ve grown accustomed to on Windows or Apple’s hardware for years will be hard to give up, but for others, the simplistic approach with just a browser to rely on may be enough to do everything they need without spending a fortune.
