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 AVADirect Avatar is a VR-ready desktop with a striking design that puts the ports front and center -- just make sure you have enough room for it.
The already impressive 27-inch 5K iMac gets some welcome spec upgrades for 2017, but rival Windows machines have closed the gap.
Anyone who bought last year's redesigned iMac doesn't need to upgrade, but for owners of older models or anyone looking to switch, the latest 27-inch Apple iMac offers a wide-ranging set of internal upgrades.
The Falcon Northwest Tiki is the most powerful, and most expensive, VR-ready PC we've tested to date.
For work-at-home folks who spend a lot of time on calls, can hook up to wired internet and use mostly official Microsoft/Windows 10 communication tools, this compact enterprise system offers some useful features.
No, this isn't a flux capacitor. It's Maingear's F131, an amazingly engineered PC packed with a custom APEX liquid-cooling block.
This is a great-looking gaming PC with outstanding performance and good customisation options. Our only reservations include the fact that it's a tad noisy, more than a bit pricey, and it'll probably give you a hernia when getting it out of the box
Asus has made a game attempt to crack the American retail desktop market over the last year or so, but the low-cost Essentio CM5571-BR003 can't overcome tough competition in the $500 to $600 price range. Gateway offers a better midtower for just $40 more, so for all but the most price-conscious shoppers, we can't recommend this desktop.
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.
Lenovo's IdeaCentre B520 is an amazingly well-equipped all-in-one for its price. You'll come for the 3D feature, but you should stay for the sheer value.
Dell's Dimension E521 doesn't have many bells and whistles, but a powerful dual-core AMD processor lends it unexpected performance and strong bang for the buck. Its speed, Vista Home Premium's Media Center functions, and multiple storage options make this a strong PC for archiving and showing off your digital media.
With poor system performance and a severe drought in features, we recommend leaving this clunker on the shelf and picking up the Gateway SX2840-01, a highly capable budget desktop with a faster processor chip, a bigger hard drive, and a larger variety of connectivity options inside and out.
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.
Tabletop PCs may not be fully ready for the mainstream, but this coffee-table-size version from Lenovo is fun to use, and doubles as a solid all-in-one desktop.
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.
