If you’re trying to get the most out of a particularly cramped workspace, a good place to start is with your PC. Many of us need the expandability of a desktop PC, but towers can be extremely bulky. Thankfully, one of the PCMag Shop deals of the week balances customizability and space-saving in one affordable package.
• HP ProDesk 400 G4 Microtower PC Desktop for $449.99 (List price: $679)
Measuring 6.69 inches by 13.3 inches by 10.79 inches, this miniature tower PC enjoys a 27 percent smaller chassis than HP’s previous model. Inside, you’ll enjoy a powerful seventh generation quad-core 3.4GHz Intel Core i5-7500 CPU, integrated Intel HD Graphics 630, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive, a DVD burner, and a bevy of display outputs.
Despite the small footprint, there’s still room for expansion inside and out. With four USB 3.0 ports and two USB 2.0 ports, adding extra storage is a snap. And perhaps best of all, this tower comes with a three-year warranty from HP. If you run into a hardware failure, the manufacturer can help you out.
A license for Windows 10 Pro (64-bit) also comes with your purchase, so business features like Bitlocker encryption and Remote Desktop are baked right in. If you’re running a small business, having all the features of Windows 10 at your fingertips can make a big difference.
