    Misleading people into believing any of these will "...play games like Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and Assassin's Creed Odyssey the way they were meant to be played." is just wrong. I'm pretty sure, 720p @ lowest settings and 30 fps (GTX 1050) is not how they're "meant to be played". Also, how do you leave out which GPUs are in some of these?

    How is the article published on Oct. 12th, 2018 with comments from 8 and 9 months ago? I guess that explains why prices are inaccurate.
