If you're buying a new computer

We recommend any reputed Windows PC manufacturers. Lenovo, HP, Dell... etc are all safe bets. If possible, please get a touch screen version. 

The Lenovo Yoga 520 is a good entry level computer for online learning. Please make sure you purchase the TOUCH SCREEN version. 

Optional : Pen Tablets (when you don't have a touchscreen)

If you don't have a touchscreen computer, and you do a lot of handwriting, you can get a tablet. 

The Wacom Intuos is a good entry level pen tablet

Optional : Headsets/Earphones with built in mics (better sound quality)

If your are always in a noisy environment, or your computer's mics are not good enough, it's best to get headsets, or earphones with built in mics, so everyone can hear you clearly.

Logitech sells a range of headsets. Any one of them would work well. If you use your online classroom frequently, you may want to get a wireless headset for maximum comfort. 

Any earphones that are built for smartphones would generally work well too. 

Optional : Webcams (for Windows desktops)

Most laptops already comes with webcams, but desktops sometimes don't.
Logitech sells a good range of webcams. The entry level C310 is good enough. But more expensive webcams perform better if the room is dark, or it's facing the sun.
