    Why did they use installing, not tried to install? You could use 'to install'.
    2)Prices for desktop PCs start as low as $300 and range all the way up to $5,000.
    I don't understand "all the way up to". It means 'to as much as'. In other words, the prices are not less than $300 and not more than $5,000.
    thank you
