For discriminating ears and eyes, the XPS 27 (2017) all-in-one offers the best combination of features for the money.
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
The latest in Dell's XPS series is the XPS One, a self-contained, all-in-one desktop PC. Looking just like a monitor without a base unit, it saves space and is almost free of cables. With an integrated hybrid TV tuner and some great design touches, will this PC compete with Apple's iMac?

The 710 H2C is a stunning-looking and blisteringly quick computer -- it makes the vast majority of PCs look like pocket calculators. Buy one if you have the cash. Hell, buy us one too
One of the least-expensive Oculus-ready PCs, the Dell XPS 8900 Special Edition hits the required specs for virtual reality, but just barely.

The basic model, with an ATI Radeon X600 graphics card, is competent but unspectacular, while a more heartily equipped model with a powerful graphics card and a RAID array could make a decent Photoshop machine. Although the 9100 has few tricks up its sleeve, it's a solid machine with plenty of potential
It does exactly what it says on the tastefully white-coloured tin. The 5100 is ready to be dropped into the heart of any house as a general purpose email, Web and office task platform
