Highs and Lows

Desktops

HIGH:

When you shell out $2,500 for a desktop computer, you're paying for the latest technology. It makes sense if you work with high-end graphics or multimedia and need the power. The micron millenia max packs it in with a 750mhz intel pentium III processor, 128mb ram, a dvd-rom drive, a 27gb hard drive, a 19-inch monitor and a 56kbps modem. You won't have to worry about upgrading for awhile. You can customize the configuration to your heart's delight at micronpc.com's web site.

Manufacturer: Micron

Model: Millenia MAX

Street price: $2,494

LOW:

The eMachines eTower 533id2 takes it easy on the specs to clock in at a low, low $599. Instead of a Pentium III, you get a 533MHz Intel Celeron processor. The 64MB RAM, 15GB hard drive, 8x DVD-ROM drive and 56Kbps modem should get you through most business applications. You'll have to think about upgrading sooner than you would if you bought the Micron Millenia MAX, but the eTower won't take much of a toll on your budget. An eView 17-inch monitor can be added for $199. This might be a better buy if you already have a good monitor lying around to use with it.

Manufacturer: eMachines

Model: eTower 533id2
