We've compared barebones PCs from Amazon Australia to see how their prices stack up against other Aussie retailers.
If you consider yourself computer savvy, it’s likely you know exactly what you’re after in a home computer. That’s why many opt for a barebones computer. A barebones PC has the bare minimum components it takes to run: a case, motherboard, CPU and a power supply. If you're lucky, it might also come with RAM and a hard drive.
Why would anyone in the world make things so difficult for themselves? Well, purchasing the bare essentials give the owner the freedom to customise everything else, from the mouse, keyboard and monitor without paying for the unwanted pack-in accessories that typically come with a standard desktop computer purchase.
With that said, those who know exactly what they still have different opinions and preference. Different strokes for different folks.
Nonetheless, we’ve rounded up the most popular desktop barebone products in the list below so you can compare side-by-side.
