Pros

  • Compact, attractive design
  • Easy-to-use, touch-friendly interface

Cons

  • Some utilities are clunky
  • No optical drive
 Compare

Pros

  • Good speed boost over previous analogous model
  • Excellent general performance
  • Compact, all-in-one design

Top-performing all-in-one runs Windows and OS X, but lacks extras such as a touchscreen, Blu-ray drive, and a card reader.

Price when rated: $21,99

Pros

  • Fastest all-in-one PC we've tested
  • Compact, all-in-one design
  • Big, beautiful screen

At a Glance

Despite its upgradable RAM, it's hard to recommend the X50 when cheaper rivals offer larger screens and built-in DVD drives.

Pros

  • Slick design

Cons

  • Poor power button placement
 Compare

At a Glance

A vibrant multitouch display and excellent general performance make the IQ500t a competitive all-in-one option.

Pros

  • Beautiful touchscreen
  • Great general performance

Cons

  • Glossy screen can be overly reflective
  • Upgradability limited to two areas
 Compare

At a Glance

This all-in-one's 18.4-inch display may lack touch, but its 1680 by 945 resolution is sharper than that of its MSI rival.

Pros

  • Big screen for the price
  • Comparable to peers in performance

Cons

  • No 802.11n wireless
  • Superthin keyboard is difficult to use
 Compare

At a Glance

The AE1900 all-in-one desktop provides netbook-like performance, but sweetens the deal with a large touchscreen.

Pros

  • Big touchscreen for the price
  • Matches closest rivals in performance

Cons

  • Lower resolution makes images less crisp
  • No upgrades
 Compare

At a Glance

A lush display, unmatched upgradability, and extras such as an HDTV tuner, and a 4-in-1 remote make the A600 hard to resist.

Pros

  • Excellent display
  • Superior upgradability

Cons

  • No touchscreen
 Compare

At a Glance

Better than a budget all-in-one, but not quite high-end either, this is a good option if your needs are somewhere in between.

Pros

  • Excellent performance
  • Eye-catching dual-touch display

Cons

  • No 802.11n wireless
  • Slight lag in touchscreen response
