Product information and further reviews for Complete PC Systems

Dell Studio One 19 PC Pro 5/2009 - Hugely popular at PC Pro, Dell's all-in-ones return with the Studio One 19 series. Without the large 24" Full HD screen in the XPS One 24, these models boast a 19" capacitative touchscreen with integrated software to make the most of it.

Sony Vaio VGC-RT1SU PC Pro 12/2008 - Sony's latest all-in-one PC seeks to go one better than the iMac by offering a 25.5-in LCD screen and built-in Blu-ray support. So is this finally an all-in-one to compete with the traditional desktop?

HP TouchSmart IQ506 PC Advisor 7/2008 - While Apple was unleashing its coloured, cuboid and numerous other non-traditionally-designed computers, PC makers were still insisting consumers shell out for boring, beige blocks with as much style as a larper at a christian disco. However, most manufacturers have finally caught up with the public's appetite for design and in the TouchSmart range from HP, people no longer have to rely on Apple for a well thought out all-in-one.

Cyberpower Infinity GTX Extreme PC Advisor 6/2008 - Featuring Nvidia's latest and most powerful graphics card, the Cyberpower Infinity GTX Extreme is advertised as a gaming PC for good reason.

PC Specialist Apollo R600 675 PC Pro 11/2007 - When PC Specialist was putting this system together, it's clear it had one thing on its mind: expandability.

Apple iMac 24in desktop computer Personal Computer World 8/2007 - Many Apple fans have been complaining that the company seemed to be losing interest in its Mac computers recently. At the beginning of this year, it changed its name from Apple Computer to Apple Inc, then spent the next six months hyping the new iPhone to death. Meanwhile, traditional Mac models, such as the iMac, seemed to have been ignored, with no significant upgrades in the past year. Well, Mac fans will have something to look forward to this Christmas as Apple has finally given the iMac an overhaul - and the new model is a bit of a cracker.

24in Apple iMac desktop PC PC Advisor 8/2007 - Despite tweaks to the design and specifications, this is a modest, nonradical Apple iMac update. Even so, the striking system will make you look twice.

Although the P35 can support newer DDR3 memory, the Infinity's motherboard only supports older DDR2 RAM. However, it is still impressively fast, as the results of our application benchmarks show. It managed an excellent score of 329 in our tough video-encoding test.

Information about the category


A complete PC system is the easiest way to get everything you need in a new PC, secure in the knowledge that everything has been preconfigured and selected to work together flawlessly as a whole.

Systems come with a motherboard, graphics and sound card, hard drive, RAM, optical drive and usually a keyboard and mouse. Be careful though as even though a monitor is usually always shown in pictures, a few systems do not include one as standard. Also have a good look at the specifications and names of manufacturers, the quality of supplied hardware will have a big impact on the speed of the PC.

The amount of RAM should be no less than 512 MB but 1GB or even 2 GB are considered the minimum for running Microsoft's new Vista Operating system. The speed of a processor is also an important factor but can be quite deceptive, look for higher cache values or for a dual core or 64 bit processor as these offer the best processing power but often seem to have the same or lower clock speeds than older processors. Integrated graphics or sound cards will also nullify any gain from choosing a higher processor speed over discrete variants with their own memory and processing chips.

A pre installed operating will save money and time and will have often been checked over to iron out any little problems that occur in new installations.

If you are working with large files or planning on writing DVDs go for a hard drive that is not less than 100 GB, future versions of Windows will need a lot of space and a collection of films and songs can grow faster than you'd expect.

Complete PC systems are currently going for a song and further savings can be made by picknig up systems with only Windows XP as opposed to Vista while stocks last.
