Manufacturer’s Description

We set the price low, then we set the bar high.

Our Essential line of budget-conscious laptops and desktops impresses with clever design on the outside and useful features on the inside. These PCs are just as comfortable in the kitchen or bedroom as they are in the home office or small business setting.

MILES OF STYLE

Whether you use them in a small business/home office setting or in your everyday life, our sleek laptops will bring a dynamic appeal with brushed metal finishes and ample viewing angles. Select models even offer ergonomic, breathable AccuType keyboards and multitouch touchpads. Also bringing a cool factor to the design: fans that are less noticable when your PC is turned on.
