What to look for when buying new computers for the office so you can claim a green rewards and some savings? Think just enough power and memory.

Three business desktops have recently been anointed as green bargains by PC Magazine. The bargain winners offer a mix of good value with energy saving features to help promote a green office.

They’re green because they conserve energy. They’re good values because of recent price cuts by manufacturers. Some prices have dropped nearly 40%.

The keys to a “green” computer are a mix of fast processing power, which reduces power demand and heat, plenty of hard drive space and compact size. Winning choices this summer include units by HP Compaq’s dc7900 Ultra-slim and two from Lenovo, the ThinkCentre M57p and the ThinkCentre A62.

Bargains range from $553 to $1,373.

PC Magazine sees these bargain units working well in office environments where workers don’t need extra power and space for music and videos.
