Best desktop PCs
By Michael Passingham
We round-up our best scoring Desktop PCs and all-in-one PCs, from wallet-pleasing entry level models, to more expensive options busting with the latest tech.
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 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.

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.
