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 Corsair One Pro offers a stunning balance of performance, size and design.
The already impressive 27-inch 5K iMac gets some welcome spec upgrades for 2017, but rival Windows machines have closed the gap.
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.
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.
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.
No, this isn't a flux capacitor. It's Maingear's F131, an amazingly engineered PC packed with a custom APEX liquid-cooling block.
Despite the quad-core processor and 4GB RAM, the M3200 is still a budget PC. If you're a bit strapped for cash and looking for a general purpose desktop, this might be the one for you.
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
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
While we fervently await the day when physics allows Alienware to cram in a more powerful GPU, the X51 stands tall as a great, space conscious gaming rig that would work well at either your desk or in the lounge room.
Thanks to 1080p output, TV tuner, Blu-ray player and wall mount, the new TouchSmart blurs the distinction between television and computer even further.
