  • Beautifully engineered, the Alienware X51 is a quick, small, and surprisingly affordable gaming PC. No competitor can match its killer combo of pint-sized chassis and powerful performance.


  • For those who can afford it as we tested it, the Alienware X51 R2 delivers a premium gaming experience in a compact design that's both stylish and well-suited for the living room. You can also of course configure a less expensive build-out on the Dell Alienware site. Job well done, team AW.


  • 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 Acer Predator AG3-605-UR20 is a solid choice for anyone shopping for an off-the-shelf gaming desktop.


  • Acer has finally delivered a gaming desktop with an advantage over the market's veterans. While a sense of awe or occasion might be missing from this bare-bones rig, it's hard to argue with a legitimately capable gaming desktop that is sold for less than $1,500 and offers respectable upgradability. Acer's Predator G3 offers outstanding bang-for-the-buck. Gamers on a budget should absolutely consider the G3.


  • High-end, high-price gaming desktops are an even rarer beast than ever, but with the latest Intel and Nvidia parts inside, at least the significant money you'll put into a Falcon Northwest FragBox will be well-spent.


  • The latest Falcon Northwest Fragbox gives users a high-powered fourth-generation Intel Core i7 plus a pair of Nvidia's latest GTX 780 graphics card. It's smooth as butter on the gaming benchmark tests.


  • Although the combination of new processor and new graphics card makes this system a performer, it's not without flaw. Upgradability is limited and difficult, and the price tag just north of $2,600 is nothing to sneeze at, though Falcon NW's pricing seems fair given the system's spectacular hardware.

    Small gaming systems remain a niche product, but this one is a must-have for the few LAN warriors who remain.


  • 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.
