The already impressive 27-inch 5K iMac gets some welcome spec upgrades for 2017, but rival Windows machines have closed the gap.
The Apple Mac Mini 2018 continues to serve as a satisfying, gets-the-job-done desktop system that delivers surprising value when you want something designed to be seen and not heard.
The iMac Pro is everything we thought it would be -- good and bad.
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.
The lower-cost Mac Mini offers respectable budget performance and Apple's usual compelling design, but a puny hard drive and a lack of HDMI hurt this system's value and overall potential. It's actually more versatile next to its budget-priced Windows competition than the higher-end Mac Mini, but this entry-level Mac is still best left to Apple loyalists.
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.

The Aspire E300 is a massive departure from the Alienware and Dell offerings that dominate the gaming arena. It's nowhere near as expensive and its contemporary styling should appeal to a broader audience. It can't compete with high-end gaming rigs, but Acer has used relatively high-performance components. It'll whiz through most everyday applications, so it's ideal if you're after a cheap desktop that covers all bases
The x27D is, at the time of writing, the fastest nettop-style machine we've ever tested. Its dual-core Atom 330 CPU makes it a far more robust solution than PCs such as the Eee Box. It's a little too noisy for our liking, but it's affordable, attractive and definitely worthy of consideration
The Shuttle XPC mini X 200 is a fantastic example of a small form-factor PC. It's quiet, attractive and offers plenty of flexibility. It's only hindered by its comparatively high price and the fact it's slower than the mini X 100
