CNET's reviews of the best desktop computers include photos, video, and user reviews
Anyone who bought last year's redesigned iMac doesn't need to upgrade, but for owners of older models or anyone looking to switch, the latest 27-inch Apple iMac offers a wide-ranging set of internal upgrades.
The HP 2709m's lack of features makes it less desirable than HP's own similarly priced w2558hc.
The Acer K272HUL starts at $450 and boasts a 27-inch WQHD screen.
The Vizio S5451W-C2's extra-large sound bar and surround speakers deliver standout surround sound, if you can live with the size.
We liked the picture quality-to-performance propositions of Vizio's 1080p resolution M-Series and E-Series TVs last year, which bodes well for the new 4K-resolution P-Series.
Pricing not available
Forgive its quirks, and people looking for a big-screen all-in-one to serve as a small-room entertainment hub will find the Vizio CA27-A1 a price-competitive possibility.
The HP Envy 27-inch IPS monitor with Beats Audio goes long on sound while still giving image quality its due.
The Asus ET2700INKS will meet the needs of anyone searching for a fast, large-screen all-in-one for mainstream home entertainment and general-purpose productivity.
At only 4mm (0.15 inch) at the edge of its Quad HD display and packed with high-end components, the A740 looks like it could be a great desktop -- if you can afford it.
