Editor Desktop Reviews

When you buy a desktop computer, you're making a statement. You're telling the world (or, at least, the part of the world that sees your desk) that you have serious computing to get done, serious screen real estate to occupy, and serious space to take up. It's a bold move in an increasingly mobile age and it begs a host of very specific questions before you put your money where your desk space used to be. We want to make sure you're not getting a power-sucking vampire machine or one so loud its fan speed goes to 11 while also ensuring the computer you're thinking about meets your needs. Whether you're looking for a behemoth gaming machine or an attractive all-in-one, we'll run the tests and parse the jargon so you know what you're getting and whether or not you should be getting it.
