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.
Despite using the same components and cases as many other PC makers, CybertronPC has managed to hit top performance scores in the CLX Ra at slightly lower prices than the competition.
A compact gaming PC with a beautiful liquid-cooling design and blazing performance for its size.
The already impressive 27-inch 5K iMac gets some welcome spec upgrades for 2017, but rival Windows machines have closed the gap.
The MSI MEG Trident X delivers a great balance of performance, design and price.
While it includes some performance and graphics concessions on the lowest priced model, the 21.5-inch iMac brings Apple's iconic design and top-notch bundled accessories and software to a wider audience.
If you're looking to get started in the world of Chrome OS, the Asus Chromebox is a very good starting point--so long as you don't mind bringing your own peripherals.
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.
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.
While its sealed-case limitations will turn off power users, Apple's least expensive Mac delivers a solid OS X experience in a compact box with similar performance to the entry-level MacBook Air and iMac models.
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.
The Corsair One Pro offers a stunning balance of performance, size and design.
While the higher power consumption is a slight concern, the X4 955 proves that AMD is back in the performance game and ready to play hard ball. Bring on the next generation.
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
As a big-screen upscale all-in-one with touch and decent gaming chops, the latest version of Dell's XPS 27 is a great all-around home PC that covers a lot of bases.
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.
