Budget desktop roundup starting at $229

Budget desktop roundup.

The eMachines T5254 is our favorite recent budget desktop. CNET

We've reviewed a steady stream of low-cost desktops over the past few weeks, and with the posting of our eMachines T3646 review this morning, we finally achieved critical mass. Click on through to our roundup of five budget desktops, which includes systems from Dell, eMachines, HP, and Shuttle. You won't find Wi-Fi or graphics cards on these systems, but you might be surprised at what kind of system you can get for the same price as a game console.
