The Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX covers the basics, and that's really all you can ask for from a $349 laptop.
Saddled with a processor that's bottom-tier, the CQ60-417DX is a budget laptop with the chassis of a superior machine but the guts of an inferior one.

A few other all-in-ones make this 20-inch iMac look expensive on a dollars-per-screen-inch basis, but none are as attractive or as capable juggling multiple programs. With a fast dual-core CPU and a strong array of features, Apple's updated all-in-one will slide seamlessly into a variety of roles at home or at work.
The Panasonic CQ-C8305U performs the basic functions of a digital-age car stereo well with great audio-tweaking options, intuitive file and folder navigation, and a worthwhile iPod interface. The stereo's full-motion color display adds little to its usability or attractiveness and its Bluetooth is disappointing.

The 29-inch monitor features a panoramic 21:9 aspect ratio for $699.
The HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One boasts quick output speeds, multiple connectivity options, cloud printing, and a growing number of apps in the HP Web store, earning our recommendation to those hunting for a flexible imaging machine.
The HP Photosmart 5510 all-in-one printer demonstrates reliable performance with excellent scores in both speed and quality tests, but falters in its feature offering. For people who need more than just speeds and feeds, I prefer the Epson Stylus NX430 instead.
For all the cool points the HP Photosmart eStation C510 earns for Web-connectivity features like ePrint and the detachable Android-powered Zeen, we're holding off on our recommendation until HP drops the price and fixes the user interface bugs and network errors that marred our testing.
The ViewSonic VG2427wm has a good assortment of ergonomic options and great performance, but its asking price is just a bit too high to recommend.
Even if you don't care that ViewSonic's VG2030wm lacks HD DVD or Blu-ray support, we can't give this LCD monitor a strong recommendation simply because there are too many better, more capable displays on the market for the same price. Its image quality is fine, but that's not enough.
