Default which is better!!????!??

ok i have a question.....im looking into purchasing a computer for a budget of $1500. after searching ive found a few to get, but ive also come across something called a workstation. I have no clue what the difference between a desktop and a workstation is and why i can get a workstation with really good specs for the same price as some desktop with crappy specs. WHats the catch??? ne advice would be great help.
