The Dell Inspiron 27 7000 is a great looking update to the previous 2017 model. It's still a reasonable price for a student on a budget.
It's something of a miracle that Apple can continue to cram newer (and hotter) components into the tiny space behind the iMac's screen, but we're already ready for a bigger redesign.
The already impressive 27-inch 5K iMac gets some welcome spec upgrades for 2017, but rival Windows machines have closed the gap.

With a small screen for its price, we can't justify the TouchSmart 300 as a home entertainment all-in-one PC. It's also slower than more affordable midtowers, so you can spend less for more productivity. This leaves HP's touch-based software as the TouchSmart 300's primary selling point. We'd recommend this PC in the kitchen, but it's less appealing elsewhere.

The Packard Bell oneTwo may not offer the best touchscreen experience, but its built-in Freeview TV tuner and ability to link games consoles via the HDMI-in port makes it a good choice for a student flat or as a second family computer.
The all-in-one Acer Aspire Z5771 desktop PC offers good performance for an affordable price, making it a wise choice for family computing. The absence of a Blu-ray drive and the lacklustre screen means it won't appeal to movie lovers.
