The already impressive 27-inch 5K iMac gets some welcome spec upgrades for 2017, but rival Windows machines have closed the gap.
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.
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.
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
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
For discriminating ears and eyes, the XPS 27 (2017) all-in-one offers the best combination of features for the money.
A pretty good value wrapped in a classy, well-designed box, the HP Envy AIO 27 will fill your need for a solid everyday PC that you won't need to hide.
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 IQ500 is the best all-in-one PC we've seen to date. It's the epitome of style, has very useful features and is versatile. The jury's still out as to whether a touchscreen is absolutely necessary, but those who want a compact, fun PC that's a little out of the ordinary should definitely consider it
With a nod to the design of Apple's iMac G5, Sony has attempted to conceal a desktop computer behind an LCD screen. The result is significantly bulkier and more cluttered than the iMac. But despite its inelegance, the VAIO has a good screen and lots of video input options
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 Acer AspireRevo R3600 is the most versatile nettop we've tested to date. Aided by its Nvidia ION chipset, it's capable of playing games and running 1080p movies. Ultimately, it's very good value for anyone that requires a cheap second PC
An annoyingly reflective screen hampers enjoyment of the MT22, and we wish it was a little more powerful, but for under £600 this is a good-looking, high-resolution beast with a sprinkling of tempting extras and a winning touch-interface
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
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.
Microsoft's ambitious love letter to creative professionals is the touchscreen iMac of your dreams -- albeit crazy expensive and running Windows.
The tiny Dell Inspiron Zino HD 410 may not be hugely exciting, but it will do a decent job of handling your media, without taking up much space.
