Updated: 8 October, 2017 seen 3,056

The year of 2015 is rapidly coming to the end - following last year's trend it means just one it's time to list Best Selling Desktop computers in 2015 - who knows, maybe exactly one of the computers listed here will end under or a top of your desktop during this holiday season.

Update: see: Top 20 Best Selling Desktop Computers 2017 (Office & Gaming)

Just as in 2014, desktop computers looks more like some video projectors than the ones I use to be familiar with - towers. But wait, at the top of this list you will find the regular tower computer from ASUS.

What's the use of desktop computers nowadays when laptops have taken over? As I believe one of the main advantages over laptops still is the performance and price. For a price of budget laptop you can get a super gaming desktop. You don't have to be a gamer (but chances are that you are) to own a desktop computer, if you like post - processing your DSLR photos - a powerful desktop computer might be just the right solution for you.
