Going back several years ago the only computer device that you had in your home was the desktop PC, but things have changed since then and the desktop PC has seen a sales decline. The first reason for this was because laptops became more powerful, but it wasn’t until the release of the tablet that things changed massively.
While some of us still need powerful computers in our homes, this is not the case with all of us. Computer manufactures knew that if they were ever to help revive the desktop PC then they needed to think out of the box. Their answer was an all-in-one PC with a difference, and while they will never help the desktop get back to where it once was, it’s nice to see that sales have slowly begun to pick up.
The iMac is considered one of the best all-in-one computers, but what if you are not into Apple? With some digging around we have come up with the best Windows 8 all-in-one PCs, and have found some visual reviews to help you decide out of this quartet.
First up is the Sony Vaio Tap 20, and you will notice that the moment you begin to use the computer it’s a little slower than a standard desktop. However sacrifices have to be made, but the 1.7GHz Core i7 CPU and a price of below $1000 makes this very appealing.
Next we have the Dell XPS One 27 and while this may not be as cheap as the model above, you can see right away why that is, and that’s because of how user friendly and easy it is to take advantage of the Windows 8 touchscreen features.
The Sony VAIO L (Late 2012 model) is an all-in-one desktop that goes a little further than some of the other models, even the entry-level model has monster specs to keep most home users happy.
Finally we have the Lenovo IdeaCentre A720, which was first launched with Windows 7, but has been given a new lease of life with Windows 8. Not only is this model feature rich, but also has the best looking design as well — maybe this is why the McLaren F1 team has them as a sponsor.
These are four of the best Windows 8 all-in-on PCs around, and you can view a detailed review for each of these below. If these are not to your liking, then what model would you choose and why?
