The best desktops and all-in-one computers

A decent desktop PC can make those daily computing tasks a breeze. No more watching that pesky Windows egg timer slowly tick down, or drumming your fingers impatiently on the desk. Our Best Buys suit a range of budgets, but all are quick enough for the average user, so you won't be hanging around.  

Below, we've rounded up complete all-in-one computers, as well as tower desktops. Each type of computer is suited for different purposes, so be sure to read our guide on how to buy the best desktop PC to ensure you're armed with all the information you need to make a good choice.

Top tower desktop PCs


This high-end desktop PC is a fantastic choice if you need something that delivers both power and prestige. It has top-tier components including an eight-core processor, 16GB of Ram and a dedicated graphics card, so it's ripe for everything from basic work right up to video editing and gaming.


This mid-sized desktop is a great option for a reasonable price. It looks great and delivers excellent performance for all the tasks you'd expect a computer to be able to perform, from document editing right up to photo manipulation.


This sleek desktop computer is fairly large, but it packs a decent punch when it comes to speed thanks to its Core i5 processor and 256GB SSD. A good choice for the money


This desktop is simple and basic, but its specifications make it a good choice if you're looking for a home computer that can handle office tasks in a speedy manner. We didn't think much of the keyboard and mouse, but otherwise there is little to complain about.


It just missed out on a Best Buy, but this basic bargain PC is well worth a look. Its Core i3 processor is more than fast enough for the basics and there's oodles of storage, too. Plus, it looks sleek. It loses out because the supplied keyboard and mouse are poor.

Top All-in-One PCs


This 24-inch model is a great pick if you're after a fast all-in-one with a good all-round performance. The screen is decent, the speakers are fine and the bundled keyboard and mouse are acceptable.


This PC just misses out on a Best Buy but is still worth a look thanks to its reasonable price. It's fast and looks great, although the speakers aren't brilliant and the supplied keyboard and mouse should be a bit better.

We test desktop PCs more thoroughly than anyone else

Our tests go further than those carried out by other organisations, and because Which? is independent and does not accept advertising or freebies, you can trust our reviews to give you the full, honest and impartial truth about a product.

When we're testing desktop PCs at the Which? lab, we make sure that the tests we're running represent the sort of things you'll be doing with your new PC. So whilst we do the things you've expect, such as benchmarking tests to check how powerful these machines are, we also record how long it takes to boot up, or transfer data from a USB - tasks that we all do everyday.

To discover the benefits take a sign up to Which? and you'll receive access to all our online content.
