Windows PC iMac alternatives

If you fancy splashing the cash on a top-of-the line desktop that ticks all the boxes, you may feel like you're constantly being pushed towards an iMac.

The three desktop PCs listed in the table below all rival the iMac for quality and performance - only they run Microsoft Windows instead.
