Input Devices not included. Which usually means you will have to supply your own Keyboard and Mouse. You might already have a set from your previous computer. Otherwise, you will have to buy new ones. $40-$500

Speakerless. This stationary computer needs external speakers to play sounds. Your options are to hook it up to a TV or a monitor with built-in speakers, use external speakers or a headset.$0-$500

No Camera or Microphone. If your plans include skyping with family members or playing with your friends online, you would need a webcam or, for best results, a headset and microphone.$40-$380

Screenless. If you don't already have a monitor from your last computer, you could connect this stationary computer to a TV or get a new monitor.$115-$1700

No Wi-Fi. This stationary computer cannot connect to a wireless network out-of-the-box. This is a common situation with high-end desktop computers because because wired networks usually perform better than Wi-Fi.
