  • Anyone who bought last year's redesigned iMac doesn't need to upgrade, but for owners of older models or anyone looking to switch, the latest 27-inch Apple iMac offers a wide-ranging set of internal upgrades.


  • Though it's mainly a speed bump, the inclusion of the latest 4th-generation Intel Core i5 quad-core processor and Nvidia GeForce GTX 775M Kepler graphics bump the Apple iMac 27-inch (Intel Core i5-4670) back to the top spot on our high-end all-in-one desktop list.

  • Rating Unavailable

    You'll buy the iMac for its beautiful display and robust performance, not the thickness of the bezel.


  • Vizio's top-of-the-line 27-inch touch all-in-one gets a modest update but stays traditional compared with detachable, convertible alternatives.


  • With its great feature set and lots of performance, the Vizio 27-inch All-in-One Touch PC (CA27T-B1) is a system that can deliver on the promises made by its futuristic design.


  • Vizio's latest all-in-one looks good and performs well, but Vizio needs to up its peripherals game.


  • The Dell XPS 27 Touch All-in-One (2720) all-in-one desktop updates the best Windows 8 PC around with Intel's latest hardware, and comes up a winner.


  • While we have a few minor quibbles with the Dell XPS 27 Touch's design, we think this is the best all-in-one on the market today.


  • With fresh components, a touch layer, and a much-improved stand, Dell's XPS 27 is the best Windows-based AiO we've seen. With a starting price less than Appleâ??s competing offering, it may gain some iMac converts.


  • Tabletop PCs may not be fully ready for the mainstream, but this coffee-table-size version from Lenovo is fun to use, and doubles as a solid all-in-one desktop.


  • The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon is a huge 27-inch all-in-one desktop that you can carry around the house. Aside from the novelty, however, there are few reasons to recommend this system over a traditional all-in-one desktop.


  • This cart is a very handy accessory for Lenovo's IdeaCentre Horizon, but you'll want to be aware of a couple design shortcomings before buying one.


  • The Vizio 24-inch Touch All-in-One (CA24T-B0) PC looks great, and doubles as a pretty good HDTV.


  • Price is the biggest bugaboo with the CA24T. As with most all-in-ones, you pay a lot extra for the style and the space-saving design. But unlike much of the competition, the CA24T actually delivers on both counts. An AIO should have more than looks, though. For this price, Vizio could provide a better keyboard, plus mouse and SSD options. (It should also have a discrete GPU option for its Intel-based model.)
