High end = with ALL the bells and whistles (lots of RAM, high speed processor, etc) and rinky-dinky software (hence expensive!).

Low end = not as much RAM, slower processor, not as much software (hence cheaper end of the market).

Medium end = (surprise, surprise) somewhere in the middle.

High End = Drool drool!

Low End = Wouldn't touch it with a barge pole.

Medium End - This is a myth = Might be able to get one with a wee loan!

It can be tough to define each level as you would normally use price as a rule of thumb - but in reality what defines the various levels is the components used. Machines such as Small Form Factor and Media Center PC's blur these lines, as these often give you little more than Mid Range components in an ultra quiet snazzy looking small case, and charge you High end prices.

Best bet is go to the DELL website and have a look - they cover the entire range of low to high end.

As a very rough guide:

High end is £2000 upwards

Mid range is £750-£1000ish

Low end is £300ish
