Bottom Line

A very affordable Windows 8 PC that is good for basic tasks but won't perform well if for anything more advanced.

The Quantum Byte QS-1043-QB is a bestselling 2015 desktop computer that received positive reviews for its compact casing, fanless design, good performance on basic tasks and adequate number of ports. However, a keyboard and mouse aren’t bundled with this system, the integrated graphics is weak and the low amount of memory doesn’t leave much room for multitasking. All in all, the QS-1043-QB is an extremely cheap desktop running the full Windows 8.1 operating system, and it has enough firepower to tackle common tasks like video streaming, document creation and web browsing.
