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 already impressive 27-inch 5K iMac gets some welcome spec upgrades for 2017, but rival Windows machines have closed the gap.
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
A winning design and unusually good sound system highlight HP's first-rate reimagining of the HP Envy Curved AIO 34 for 2017.
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.
For discriminating ears and eyes, the XPS 27 (2017) all-in-one offers the best combination of features for the money.
The iMac is still the best all-in-one desktop on the market. We love the physical design of the system, and the new components on the inside make it very quick. Our only real gripe is the fact it's difficult to upgrade after purchasing, and upgrading at the point of purchase will cost you an arm and a leg
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 360-degree up-firing speaker is similar to the one in Amazon's Echo, but with an entire Windows desktop attached.
The Acer Aspire 5600U packs a vivid high-definition touch-enabled screen into a slim and attractive body, making it a good choice for family computing in the living room. It's sadly let down by only average performance that doesn't help justify the relatively high asking price.
You could say that the Acer Aspire Z5610 has a few flaws, but it might be more accurate to call them sacrifices. After all, we don't expect that Acer could sell a 23-inch all-in-one for less than $1,000 without trimming a few costs. Fortunately, Acer chose its trade-offs wisely. You can find faster, better-looking all-in-ones out there, but none that offer this much screen real estate for such an aggressive price.
The Packard Bell oneTwo L I7526 is a decent option for those who fancy a touchscreen PC with an integrated TV tuner, but don't want to spend a fortune. It offers good performance, inoffensive looks, passable sound quality and a big, 23-inch screen.
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 Sony Vaio XL302 is a hugely impressive Media Center PC. It packs everything you could want into its large frame, including dual TV tuners and a Blu-ray drive. But for £700 less you can get the very similar, Blu-ray-less Sony Vaio VGX-XL301
The Dimension 5150c is one of the first PCs to use the Intel Viiv specification, and it makes a good first impression. Its BTX chassis almost achieves the Holy Grail of silent operation. Useless at running games, its Pentium D processor gives it strong performance elsewhere, and it is surprisingly inexpensive. Some users will be disappointed at the lack of a TV tuner, but if recording television isn't a priority then the 5150c is a winner in almost every respect
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.
The HP TouchSmart 520 doesn't have the sharp looks to match an ultra-stylish living room, but it offers enough power and a screen that's good enough to keep most families happy.
The Sony Vaio VGC-JS2E is a seriously stylish all-in-one PC that also offers solid performance. It's just a shame it lacks a Blu-ray drive, TV tuner and 'Full HD' screen
