    "This is an excellent cheap, desktop computer for only $230. It makes computing easy. It is plug and play. It comes with Windows 8.1 preinstalled, so no need to purchase an OS, and go through the task of installing it. Out of the box, it takes about an hour to setup. If you need a desktop for basic computing, working online, school or a home office, this is an excellent choice for the price. It is a solid machine, and it is very reliable. I would highly recommend it."

    "Often, when the terms 'best' and 'cheap' are in the same topic, the odds of a wide difference of opinion exist and that is certainly the case here. This Lenovo machine does fit the category of best if one's idea of cheap is stretched beyond what my definition of cheap, which is always relative (i.e. dynamic depending on the market). In that regard, I cannot give this machine the highest marks, but because it is good I can't give it bottom of the barrel marks either. How about a B-/C+ 'ish and you determine where your idea of cheap falls ?"

    "I wanted to find a good cheap desktop computer and identified the Skytech Gaming ST-SHADOW-II-001. This computer has a bunch of good specifications and is ready for gaming. The price, however, is significantly higher because you are paying for better components. As such, I don't recommend this computer to people who need a cheap option. "

    "Not only is this a Lenovo, who make pretty decent stuff, but the price range is less than $700, which is usually the low end figure for something like this. There's some decent storage, as well, and the processor looks good too."

    "THis is a great desktop computer for under $200! It's fast and has plenty of space for small projects. IF you are a gamer or have lots of photos and stuff, I would recommend something with a bit more space. "
