The fact is that computing needs exist because mobile devices like laptops and tablets can't fulfill them. Desktop-class CPUs and graphics processors are simply more powerful than their mobile counterparts for the same money. You can finish your working in less time by computer which are less expensive in general than laptop.

You can get desktops with screens that are already built in, or they can be connected externally to a monitor. In either case, you're almost guaranteed to have a bigger display than even the largest desktop-replacement laptop, which tops out at about 18 inches in size.

Another plus is that expandable desktops can accommodate multiple graphics cards to support more than two simultaneous displays. All in all, buying a desktop PC is very worth but what is the best choice for you?

1. BEST PC: Dell XPS Tower Special Edition

The latest XPS Tower Special Edition ecially interesting in that it’s more compact than ever. Dell has packed in both 8th-generation Intel’s Coffee Lake processors and Nvidia’s 10-series graphics cards, making it virtual reality-ready and powerful enough to game even when hooked up to a ridiculously sharp monitor. On the top, every XPS Tower Special Edition now comes with 2,666MHz memory that’s a major step up from the previous 2,133MHz RAM onboard previous iterations.

The XPS Tower looks so formal, you might think Dell accidentally shipped one of its Precision enterprise desktops. However, we actually love the look of this clean, minimalistic aesthetic. The front cover of the desktop is made up of one contiguous solid sheet of aluminum, whose only accents are a Dell and XPS logo. Meanwhile, the rest of the body is fashioned from a plastic painted in semi-glossy black with a band of ribbed texture towards the back of the PC case.

2. Best gaming PC: Alienware Aurora R6

The Alienware Aurora R6 is an excellent gaming PC that offers brilliant performance in a conveniently compact body. The affordable price is pretty great as well, considering the power on offer and users itching for upgrades will have room to pick up a second graphics card, plus more RAM and storage.

The Alienware Aurora R6 sits between Alienware’s Alpha range of affordable and compact PCs and the high-end Alienware Area 51 (we just reviewed the Threadripper Edition). While this puts the Aurora R6 in the mid-range of Alienware’s offerings, don't be fooled into thinking this is simply a middle-of-the-road gaming machine.

It combines everything we’ve come to expect from Alienware’s devices, including powerful components and an eye-catching design.

3. Best all-in-one PC: Microsoft Surface Studio

A fantastic, enormous all-in-one that's much more than an iMac wannabe but the price means it’s for professionals only. However, once you lay eyes on the Surface Studio it’s understandable. This is the very definition of a boutique system, and that’s not just down to the decidedly exclusive price tag.

The most impression is an enormous 28in touchscreen that’s even larger than it sounds. The Surface Studio’s unique 4,500 x 3,000 resolution provides room enough to view and edit 4K video at native resolution, and while its 192ppi pixel density is a little coarser than the 218ppi of the 5K iMac, it has the advantage of what Microsoft calls “True Scale”, so at 100% magnification, text and documents should print at exactly the size they appear onscreen.

What’s more, the fully-articulating stand makes it a versatile tool for work and play with Surface Pen support. All in all, the Surface Studio is an exceptional work of, and for, art.

4. Best budget PC: HP Pavilion Wave

The Pavilion Wave is coming with a super fancy Bluetooth speaker. It measures 6.81 x 6.62 x 10.29 inches and is arranged vertically in a rounded, triangular, cylinder orientation. The whole device is wrapped in thick-threaded fabric that you would normally find on a subwoofer or fancy all-in-one speaker.

This compact Windows machine packs in 6th-generation Intel Core processors and optional discrete AMD graphics with a uniquely integrated Bang & Olufsen speaker. Wrapped in a handsome fabric exterior, this is the perfect PC to have on the desk, as it radiates crisp sound while you browse the web or watch movies.


The good desktop PC is impossible to be killed by currently huge development of laptop. Desktop PCs lets you control who sees confidential business data, and the combination of a desktop PC and a large screen means that parents can monitor what their children are doing online via a quick glance across the room.
