    PC Specialist Vanquish Eclipse 670 MKII review

    9  

    When you're talking about a balanced PC build, it's tough to look past this machine from PC Specialist. It really has got the lot, and it's difficult to see where any real compromise or sacrifice has been made.

    With the smart choice of using the GTX 670 as graphics card the Diablo GTX has got some impressive gaming chops, and will throw polygons around a 1080p panel with aplomb.

    It's a 20-inch tablet. It's an all-in-one PC. It's everything at once - except brilliant. It's not that.

    The very first thing to catch your eye on this AdvanceTec build is the striking XPredator chassis, all stormtrooper white with black grills getting all up in yours.

    The Chillblast machine is one big, fat beastie. The chunky Zalman chassis gives it a real sense of presence on your desk, and the internal goodies match that sense of scale.

    The cheapest, portable Mac desktop is now better than before, but still misses some features. Is it worth it?

    A 23-inch touchscreen all-in-one multimedia machine, but can a Windows 7 PC cut it in a world of Windows 8 devices?

    8  

    Dell previously had a 27-inch XPS, but this new Windows 8 model brings a couple of new tricks to the party, including a huge 27-inch touchscreen.

    ViBox Boss-X review

    8  

    The Boss-X is certainly an imposing machine on paper, and it's equally impressive in the flesh thanks to the huge Cooler Master HAF X chassis in which it is enclosed.

    There is something rather unnerving about this teeny weeny little machine from Chillblast. It's so quiet you can't even tell if it's on.

    There's no denying that the desktop PC is facing an uncertain future. Its market share is being eroded by tablet PCs, laptops and even smartphones as more of our computing tasks are going mobile.

    Time for a spot of word association. We say workstation, you think big, black monolith. Right? What to make, then, of HP's new Z1 all-in-one workstation?

    While Chromebooks struggle in the mobile market, how will the desktop-based Chromebox Series 3 XE300M22 fare against traditional PCs?

    CyberPower Infinity Achilles review

    CyberPower Infinity Achilles review

    8  

    The CyberPower Infinity Achilles is the most affordable of the Ivy Bridge PCs we've seen, but at just under a grand you'd struggle to actually call it cheap. Though there are most definitely compromises in this sub-£1,000 build.

    It's never going to be any gaming beast, but as a bedroom PC or even a decent little home theatre machine, it's absolutely ideal.
