Home PC


A Home PC is a PC that is used by everyone living in a home for various tasks. For the most part a Home PC does not need to be extremely powerful, as the tasks it will be performing are not particularly resource hungry.

Each of the examples here will be capable of running the tasks on the left. The more you spend on a home PC the faster it will run those tasks and the further into the future you will be able to use it to run new programs.

The one area you would see significant differences between these machines would be when playing 3D gaming, so if this is a priority make sure you go with the separate graphics card, or if you intend to play the very latest games, consider a Gaming PC instead.
