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 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 already impressive 27-inch 5K iMac gets some welcome spec upgrades for 2017, but rival Windows machines have closed the gap.
If you're looking for an all-in-one that's going to last you a few years, the HP Envy 32 AIO hits the mark.
The MSI MEG Trident X delivers a great balance of performance, design and price.
The Corsair One Pro offers a stunning balance of performance, size and design.
One of the most premium-feeling (and premium-priced) of the first generation of VR-ready gaming desktops, the Origin PC Chronos is compact but powerful.
Another entry in the Stick PC field, offering Windows 10 for under $130.
The Toshiba Qosmio DX730 won't win any beauty awards, but it's no dog either. Its bright, Full HD screen, Blu-ray drive and decent performance make it a good option for movie-lovers.
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.
The Asus Tytan CG8890 packs in some of the most powerful components a non-military professional has access to. It can tackle the glossiest games with the sort of cool ease most desktops can only dream of but it does demand £4,000 in return. If you custom built a similar rig elsewhere, you could save yourself a bundle.
We find it difficult to fault the Elite Quad 6600 FX. It has a fast quad-core processor, ample memory and a graphics card that while not particularly fast, doesn't shy away from games. If you have a spare £700 and want a solid all-round PC, you really should consider it
Whichever way you look at it, the HP Pavilion Elite m9000 series (m9065.uk-a) is a good PC. Better value can be had elsewhere, but its quad-core CPU, ample memory and thoughtful design helps it stand out from the crowd
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.
If money is no object, the FX-60 and dual 7800 GTX-equippped Aurora 7500 is probably the fastest PC you can buy off the shelf. It has lethal gaming performance and will outpace other PCs at doing the simple things, too
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.
