A typical desktop PC is any PC that resides in a single location and does not have user interface components built within the system, such as a keyboard, mouse, or monitor. This does not include any laptops or all-in-one PCs.

Desktop PCs are commonly enclosed in cases known as "towers," which are generally rectangular boxes that are taller than they are wide. The weight of a desktop PC can range from 5 to 50 lbs depending on the components inside and depending on the material and size of its case.

The core components of a desktop PC include a power supply unit, a motherboard, a central processing unit (CPU), a graphical processing unit (GPU), RAM (Random Access Memory), and a hard drive.
