Purchase Template:

Business grade DESKTOP for a small office

Budget: up to $1,000

Primary uses:

  • MS Office, email, web browsing, minimal graphics programs, minimal audio, minimal video, up to 3 - 5 programs open at the same time
  • no games, no overclocking

Support for 1 monitor with at least 2560 x 1440 screen resolution

Ethernet port and USB ports for keyboard, mouse, printer, external HDDs, etc. No need for wireless connectivity.


Reason for purchase:

I need a new 'workhorse' and want to take full advantage of the security features of Microsoft's new OS, whatever those may be. I understand that I need Windows 10 Pro with BitLocker and TPM 2.0, but I don't really know much beyond that.


What I need:

  • recommendations on hardware/system specs
  • some explanations on the (hardware) security features that I will be paying for

I've had good luck with Acer Veriton Business grade models.

Thanks for the comment!


I'd like to stimulate discussions on Secure Boot, CPU Virtualization/Intel VT-x on mobo, etc.

In other words, what hardware specs shall I look for in order to fully support Windows 10 security features?
