What is an entry level desktop PC? A destop PC intended for data entry?
The Intel answer to that question clears the road toward more confusion here they say:
Entry Level Desktop PC What is an Entry Level Desktop PC?
An entry level desktop PC is a versatile, space-saving, and practical desktop device for basic computing and Internet access in more rooms of the house:
Internet browsing where you need it in the home
Streaming videos* or music
As a compact, light-weight internet companion device to your PC, an entry level desktop PC is typically powered by an Intel® Atom™ processor.
Almost any entry level system would be fine for general use. The hardware has finally been updated to support common tasks.
It's use may be things like simple to low resolution games, web tasks, video watching, modest photo editing, any sort of word processing or office tasks. Might even run a virtual machine in decent speeds with ram.
They are simply talking about the price class. You could also say low-cost, low-price or several other words, but I think the marketing people have chosen entry-level to avoid the word low in their terms. May be the opposite helps to explain: The opposite of an entry level PC is simply a high-end PC, between those two you will find the mid-price region.
