As the end of the year approaches we have decided to take a look back at the best Desktop PCs of 2014. We picked the best PC from five different categories so whatever type of computer you are looking for we have you covered.
Best Small Business Desktop
This model from Lenovo provides a very slim form factor. You can hide it away on your desk leaving lots of space for paperclips and coffee cups. But just because it comes in a small box does not mean it is small on power.
3.3GHz of processing with 4GB of RAM gives you all the power you could need. Multiple monitor support provides for flexible workstation solutions. A 500GB hybrid hard drive means speedy storage.
Best Business All-in-one
All-in-ones are growing in popularity for businesses. Their space saving form factor and intuitive interfaces make them a flexible solution. The HP EliteOne 800 is an IT friendly addition to the All-in-one market.
A quad core Intel processor gives users 2.9GHz of computing speed. 4GB of DDR3 RAM contribute to the smooth operation of its 23″ backlit LCD touch-screen surface.
Best Media All-in-one
Apple products are always notable for their aesthetic appeal. The latest generation of iMacs take this to a new level. The breathtakingly elegant sweeps and curves are usually enough to sell the computer simply as an ornament. But Apple manage to fit an incredible amount of technology into a very slim form.
Squeezed in alongside the 3.2GHz quad-core i5 Intel processor you will find a powerful Nvidia GeForce GT 755M graphics card. Everything a designer needs is provided in this inspiring form.
Best Entry Level
The Asus Chromebook is an incredibly small and versatile device. If you are looking for a simple and inexpensive way to turn you television into an online platform then this is the way to go.
Operating on the Chrome OS means you get a smooth and quick booting experience. The streamlined OS also keeps it virus and bloat ware free. Online video streaming is seamless and the 100GB of online storage provided by Google gives you a place to store and work on documents in the cloud.
While you may think you have received a beautiful vase instead of a computer the new Apple Mac Pro is leagues ahead of its competition. The unusual design is unlike any other computer on the market but it is more than a simple aesthetic choice. It is actually the result of an ingenious design that maximises airflow over the components. This allows internal components to operate at maximum efficiency.
So that 3.5GHz 6 core Intel Xeon E5 will run faster in your Mac Pro than it will in a regular PC. With an enormous 16GB of RAM and massive dual AMD FirePro D500 display adapters inside this tiny form, even the most demanding graphics applications will be a breeze.
