www.pcworld.com
The Dell Inspiron 17R-1316MRB is a budget desktop replacement, which sounds like it might be an oxymoron. After all, how can a laptop that's meant to replace a desktop be, well, cheap (listed at $650, to be exact)? The answer is simple: It can be inexpensive if it's really...

However, it's also got a mobile processor, which means it's less powerful than its desktop-processor-sporting counterparts. Our review model, which costs $1899.99 as configured, sports a third-generation Intel Core...

Acer Aspire V5 review: beauty and no brains

www.pcworld.com
The Acer Aspire V5 isn't a bad-looking machine, considering its price point. It's heavier than it looks, but that heaviness translates into denseness, which translates into the machine feeling sturdy and stable. It almost looks like an Ultrabook - it's relatively slim, it has a simple, sleek overall design,...

Toshiba Satellite LX835-D3380 review: below average display, underperforming

www.pcworld.com
The Toshiba Satellite LX835 starts at $1399.99, which doesn't exactly put it in the budget all-in-one category (if such a category even exists). But you'd never know that by looking at it--thanks to its be-stickered bezel, unimpressive touchscreen, and cheap peripherals, it doesn't exactly look like a top-of-the-line machine...
