Laptop and tablet computers seem to get all the publicity these days, but desktop computers still give you the best bang for your buck. Whether it’s a traditional tower box or an all-in-one unit, you’ll find desktops have a lot to recommend them. They’re larger capacity and far more expandable than laptops and tablets, so they can also give you a longer working life.
We tested 11 desktop computers, including six all-in-ones (four with touchscreens) to see how they compare for performance, features and value.
