The all-in-one PC may have taken the mantel from the humble desktop PC these days as the home computer of choice. However, while an all-in-one PC might be convenient, it won't be as flexible as a desktop PC - you're unlikely to be able to adapt it or make changes, and of course you can choose your own monitor. Picking a desktop PC makes for a much more flexible experience, and can be cheaper, too.

We've picked a great desktop PC from our recent testing, a great all-rounder that is powerful, and has plenty of ports to accommodate your peripherals.

Which? Top Desktop PCs of the month


This Best Buy model was already a great deal, but some retailers have now slashed a further £50 off the price. This machine is perfect for video and photo editing if you already have your own monitor, mouse and keyboard.


This model just went through our labs and we were impressed by its processor and graphics performance. It’s one of the most powerful machines we’ve tested this year and while it isn’t perfect – the screen is merely mediocre – it’s a great choice for someone who wants to edit videos or play games.
