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 Studio Hybrid is definitely worthy of consideration, particularly if you're looking for a tiny Media Center PC. It's more expensive than nettops like the Eee Box or Eee Top, and it's difficult to upgrade yourself, but the fact you can customise it to your specific needs makes it a worthwhile proposition
The already impressive 27-inch 5K iMac gets some welcome spec upgrades for 2017, but rival Windows machines have closed the gap.
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.
The bold Alienware Alpha makes good on many parts of its promise to meld the gaming PC and living room game console, but there are still too many rough edges to make this a true console killer.
It won't run Photoshop or play games, but add a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and the Asus Chromebit turns any HDMI-compatible display or television into a Web-surfing station.
Dell's workmanlike Inspiron One 2330 won't change your life, but it will meet all of your basic mainstream desktop needs while also providing a few useful extras.
The smallest Apple iMac trades up to a 4K display, and jumps to newer, but still not the latest, processors. While the design hasn't changed, newly crafted accessories with rechargeable batteries and Lightning connectors add flair and convenience.
Apple's new Mac Mini includes an elegant new design and some long asked-for features, including HDMI output and user-accessible memory. The system still faces a value challenge for its given specs, but Apple has done enough to improve the Mac Mini's appeal for Apple loyalists and design fans looking for a living room computer.
The Corsair One Pro offers a stunning balance of performance, size and design.
No, this isn't a flux capacitor. It's Maingear's F131, an amazingly engineered PC packed with a custom APEX liquid-cooling block.
The TouchSmart series continues to wither away potential as a viable touch device. Still, the new near-horizontal mode will no doubt grab the attention of those who intend to develop custom apps around it.
You can configure Alienware's midsize gaming desktop with the new 16-core AMD processor as well as other third-generation Ryzens.
With only a choice of two consoles, the Big O you can buy is more of a little O. We handled a prototype ahead of its CES 2020 launch.
Supporting Intel's gaming NUC platform and full-size GPUs, the Razer Tomahawk will be available as a fully built desktop or a DIY chassis.
The Artisan looks and feels like it belongs in the living room. Performance is similar to all Media Center PCs once you've got them up and running, but the joy of the Artisan is the relative simplicity of its setup. We're never sure what to expect when we sacrifice our living room to a Media Center machine, but this one left us pleasantly surprised
We found the port selection and placement a little irksome, but this 21.5-inch Apple iMac, complete with 3.06GHz Core i3 processor, is a beautifully crafted machine. It offers solid performance and a bright, vivid display.
The tiny Dell Inspiron Zino HD 410 may not be hugely exciting, but it will do a decent job of handling your media, without taking up much space.
