Although the Motorola Moto G with 4G LTE is a bit pricier than its 3G-only sibling, it still has one of the best displays in the budget arena, its processor makes operation enjoyably smooth and its rounded, compact body is both comfortable and attractive. If you're after an affordable all-round entrance into the high speeds of 4G, you've come to the right place.
Budget shoppers take note: the extremely aggressively priced HP Pavilion g4-1215dx is a worthwhile laptop pick for those who want a basic, cheap computer. It's hard to find a decent laptop for less--and we've seen lesser laptops that cost more.

Since the Intel-based models aren't any more expensive and they promise better performance and include more features, such as Front Row and a remote control, there's no reason to choose a G4-based Mac Mini unless you find a great deal as resellers clear out their old inventory. For our most recent coverage, read our review of the Mac Mini Core Duo.
