Whether you are studying, working or gaming, we absolutely have you covered. Today, we venture into the world of computing to provide you with the peak performance products at the most affordable price. We have searched hours and hours, researching what is on the market and have found that technology is going through a standard area of foundation where the technology is incredible but the advancement of the software and hardware has slowed down. This is an excellent opportunity for seeking products at reasonable value.
These opportunities happen every so often, recognised in the stages before the introduction of Telsa Motors where cars were focusing on wizardry in technology but style, models and shapes were relatively similar to the model prior. Likewise, this has been seen on occasion with mobile phones, where the models barely shift and the brand name pushes the sales of the product.
We have looked through and found our favourites by category computers available currently in 2021.

Gaming Computer of the Year so far - HP OMEN 17-cb1002na 17.3 Inch Full HD
We opted for a different route with the gaming computers. We cover a lot of gaming accessories and desktop systems but we have taken a liking to the HP Omen. We previously covered the 15 model recently in our product descriptions and felt this is a hugely underrated product for the quality of hardware and software you are receiving.
This holds a 6-core10th gen Intel Core i7 processor with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 graphics and 1TB hard disk space. This bad boy has HP Dual Speakers with HP Audio Boost for gaming immersion and heat management for long gaming sessions.
