2. Surface Studio
A fantastic all-in-one from Microsoft
CPU: Intel Core i5 – i7 | Graphics: Nvidia GeForce GTX 965M – 980M | RAM: 8GB – 32GB | Storage: 1TB HDD; 64GB SSD – 2TB HDD; 128GB SSD | Display: 28-inch PixelSense (4,500 x 3,000) display
Seamlessly transitions between modesThe best and biggest digital drawing boardAll rearward portsPricey proposition for most
The first thing you should know about the Surface Studio is that it’s probably not for you. Unless you’re an executive at a design firm, the massive starting price is enough to turn most heads in the other direction. That said, we would argue that the Surface Studio is well worth the cost of admission. Versatile and forward-thinking, Microsoft’s all-in-one puts the iMac to shame by introducing an all-in-one that can not only replace your lingering desktop tower, but your Cintiq as well.

4. HP Envy Curved All-in-One
A spectacle in everyway
CPU: Intel Core i5 – Core i7 | Graphics: Nvidia GTX 950M – AMD Radeon RX 460 | RAM: 8GB – 16GB | Storage: 1TB SSHD, 1TB – 2TB HDD; 256GB SSD | Display: 34-inch WQHD (3,440 x 1,440)
Enveloping ultra-wide displayFull-bodied audioPrivacy-minded pop-up web cameraExceptionally bulky
Not to be shown up by the 5K iMac or new Dell XPS AIO, HP has its own unique take on the all-in-one desktop. Though it also has all its components stored in its base like the Surface Studio, the HP Envy Curved All-in-One also adds in a booming speaker bar. Add in the ultra-wide curved screen and this is one of the best and most immersive PC for enjoying movies.
