Digital Storm Bolt
By sacrificing luxuries, the performance-focused Digital Storm Bolt will satisfy most PC gamers for significantly less than most other small gaming desktops.
Vizio CA24-A1 All-in-One ( 24-inch)
A touch screen and Windows 8 can't defuse the impression that the Vizio CA24T-A4 all-in-one was designed primarily for retail shelf appeal.
Vizio CA27-A2 All-in-One ( 27-inch)
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.
Budget desktops might not be all that exciting, but the Gateway SX2870-UR10P slim tower shows you can still find a worthwhile day-to-day PC for under $500.
Digital Storm Ode V2 Level 4
Most gamers would change very little about Digital Storm's preconfigured Ode V2 Level 4.
Dell XPS One 2710
The pixel-dense Dell XPS One 2710 is one of the best Windows-based all-in-ones available and, barring a new iMac, an easy high-end recommendation.
Falcon Northwest Tiki ( Core i7 3770K)
We don't recommend the Falcon Northwest Tiki for general-purpose high-end gaming, but this system is your best bet if you want a luxury-priced blend of speed and space savings.
Sony VAIO L116FX ( Core 2 Quad Q8400S 2.66GHz, 6GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium)
Sony promises some cutting edge media features on its new Vaio L-Series, but it's tough to recommend when not all of them deliver.
Asus All-in-One PC ET2700INKS
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.
Origin Genesis ( Intel Core i7-3770K)
Despite only a modest chip update from Intel, this fast gaming desktop makes the best of a challenging marketing task. Any gamer would be glad to own the Origin Genesis.
