Asus Essentio with Intel's new CPU

Intel's new CPUs are the most compelling feature in this new Asus Essentio CM6870 desktop. Otherwise, it's just another midtower.

Gateway DX4850-45u

Most will find the Gateway DX4850-45 an awkward mix of performance and Blu-ray playback capability given its clunky chassis, but if you have room for a midtower PC for both productivity and disc-based HD entertainment, this system may have some appeal.

HP's Pavilion p6720f won't turn heads, but its workmanlike performance and expandability make this a respectable budget midtower.

HP Pavilion P6540Y

HP's uncommonly hued Pavilion p6540y offers a competitive set of features for a midtower desktop. The quad-core AMD chip should power you through light-duty multimedia editing faster than competing Intel-based systems. Upgraders should stay away, and there are faster general-productivity PCs available for less, but we can recommend this PC to those in need of its particular quad-core charms.

HP Pavilion p6510y

The HP Pavilion p6510y midtower desktop is a solid computer that makes quick work in a multitasking environment thanks to its quad-core AMD CPU, and the external connections give video editors the upper hand in terms of speed and versatility. The p6510y deserves our recommendation, but if Photoshop and Dreamweaver aren't part of your daily routine, you can trade the HP's multicore speed for extra hard-drive space and save a couple bucks with a competing Asus system.

Gateway DX4840-03e

We have few reservations about this Gateway DX4840-03e. Even if it's not a particularly remarkable system, it's hard to argue that it falls short as a general purpose budget midtower. If that's all you're looking for, we can recommend this PC with little hesitation.

Asus Essentio CM5675-07

As much as we like the new chassis, a sparse feature set limits the Asus Essentio CM5675-07's shelf appeal. It's certainly not a bad computer, and its Intel Core i5 650 CPU is fast enough for most tasks, but we wish Asus had done more to help this lower midrange midtower stand out.
