CNET's reviews of the best desktop computers include photos, video, and user reviews
The Acer Aspire AU5-620 is a great entertainment PC, pairing an attractive display and strong media-streaming performance with a wallet-friendly price.
Don't expect the world from HP's low-cost Pavilion All-in-One MS2255, but as a basic day-to-day PC for light-duty productivity or Web and media accessibility in the kitchen, it's a very good deal. You'd be wise to look here before considering an Atom-based Nettop.
The one-hand folding kickstand makes it easy to lay this 23-inch screen flat.
HP's Pavilion x360 adds Beats Audio (for now) and rugged construction to the expanding field of 11-inch Yoga-likes, but Lenovo's version feels much more upscale.
The 15.6-inch device packs the appeal of Android, but houses dated specs and a dull screen.
By adding an HDMI input, the low-priced HP Slate 21 Pro aims to be a "PC monitor with benefits" for small business.
Pricing not available
A handful of worthwhile unique features help the Dell Inspiron 23 all-in-one stand out among 23-inch desktops.
It's not the most attractive PC out there, but the Asus ET2300INTI has a broad array of features that will entice those looking for a mainstream Windows 8 all-in-one.
HP has made an aggressive move in the budget PC space with this big-screen all-in-one that will serve as an affordable, generally capable home computer.
With a 23-inch display, easy expandability, and a starting price around $660, this could be your family's next PC.
