Top 5 Desktop PCs you can Choose From in 2017

HP ENVY Curved All-in-One Desktop PCs

Desktop PCs are used by a lot of people these days because of the variety and options it has to offer in comparison to a laptop. Desktop PCs are widely used for gaming, designing, or simply for entertainment purposes. Here are some latest desktop PCs that you can buy in 2017.

1) HP ENVY Curved All-in-one

HP ENVY is designed for a mesmerizing entertainment experience. It is the world’s widest curved All-in-One with integrated privacy camera which practically floats above a sculpted aluminum stand and sound bar. From the craftsmanship of its ultra-thin, curved micro-edge display to every one of its almost five million pixels which transcend the realm of home entertainment with an immersive experience like no other. The HD IR camera and mic enable Windows Hello and are designed to pop up only when in use, this way it safeguards your privacy. The micro-edge display maximizes your desk space by packing more screen area into a smaller footprint. With up to 16GB DDR4 memory, your PC can keep up with your multitasking life. With multiple storage options, you have the space to save everything without sacrificing speed. You have optional discrete graphics from NVIDIA and AMD which give you superior performance when multitasking.

2) Apple iMac

The iMac remains one of the best-looking computers you can have on your desk. A metal stand holds up the screen and slim body, which manages to fit in a plethora of high-end components – including a discrete graphics card. There is a decent amount of connectivity, with all of it located on the rear of the iMac. You’ll find an Ethernet, four USB 3 and two Thunderbolt 2 ports. An HD FaceTime 1.2-megapixel camera can be found at the top for video calling. The iMac 2015 is available in three iterations, each with differing processors (all Intel), hard drives and GPUs (all AMD). All come with 8GB of RAM as standard. The iMac can also be ordered with up to 32GB of storage if required. A single, full charge of a couple of hours will allow the mouse last a few months, plus you can get a full day from only a two-minute power-up. The keyboard has been built from the ground up and is rechargeable.

The Acer Revo One RL85 is a stylish PC intended to be your go-to home entertainment hub. Acer comes with 4TB of storage, HDMI support for 4K video, and a vast array of physical and cloud-based connectivity options. The Revo’s chassis is built entirely from white, glossy plastic. The body is cubic and curved on all sides, although grippy feet on the bottom stop it from rocking over. There’s also a mini-DisplayPort, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a Gigabit Ethernet port and an HDMI port capable of handling dual 4K displays. A single SD card can be slotted into the top of the Revo, too. The Revo comes with Acer’s ‘ab’ range of apps; those letters stand for ‘Acer’ and ‘Build Your Own Cloud’. This gels well with the Revo because apart from storing all your files on the substantial physical memory, you can also utilize four ‘ab’ apps.

4) Dell XPS 27

The Dell PremierColor software is quite good, allowing you to control all of the important parameters and offering presets for all the essentials. At the top of the display sit an array of four microphones and vents for heat dissipation. In total, the system has four USB 3.0 ports- one on the side and the other three inset behind the display. But you lose one to the Bluetooth mouse and keyboard dongle — plus two Thunderbolt 3/USB-C, one DisplayPort, an HDMI and an Ethernet jack. An SD card slot sits on the left side of the display. The XPS 27 has a terrific audio system, especially for an all-in-one, and a display with excellent color reproduction.
