Now is a great time to start looking at all-in-one desktop PCs.  They  have really come in to their own lately, with the newer chips available to give them plenty of power in a compact package. With Microsoft’s Windows 8 now available too, the all-in-one desktop PC scene is really set to explode even more now with a wide range of great touchscreen models now available.

They can be very stylish and minimal looking on your desk, letting you get rid of that bulky PC tower. Everything is self contained. Having a touch-screen means you won’t even need a keyboard and mouse if you don’t want them cluttering up your desk. It will change how you think about your computer. It becomes more of an appliance. As easy to set up as plugging in a toaster, and can be set up nearly anywhere without worrying about too many plugs, wires, and gear all over the place.
