Desktop PCs

Acer Aspire U5-610 all-in-one PC

All-in-one desktop PCs aren't new kids on the block, and they've also never really been all that popular as household computing devices. While the mobile market has shifted to touch devices and mostly flourished, all-in-one desktops with touchscreens are still trying to find their feet (and hands) in the PC market. Acer's Aspire U all-in-one now features a fourth generation Intel Core i5 CPU. But is it worth considering as a replacement for a traditional desktop?

Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK small form factor PC

Intel's Next Unit of Computing, or NUC for short, is now available in a fourth-generation Intel Core model (the D54250WYK), which gives it better performance and efficiency characteristics than the third-generation model that we reviewed two years ago (the DC3217BY).

A walk down memory lane: PC adverts and reviews from the 1980s

We take a nostalgic walk down memory lane with a look at advertisements and more from the computing heydays of the 80s. The following images were featured in Australian PC World issues dated between 1986-1987 and they tell stories of a time when IBM was the big-dog, floppy disks were the preferred method of storage, and the colour monitor was being born.

In Pictures: 30 years of Apple’s Mac computer

Over the last three decades, the Mac has morphed and evolved into a dizzying array of form factors. While some models quickly came and went, others became iconic machines in their own right. So, in honor of the Mac's 30th birthday on 24 January, here is a look back at the more influential, significant, and notable Mac machines released over the last 30 years.

HP Z230 Workstation PC

HP's Z230 workstation is aimed at those of you who need a high-end PC on which to run advanced applications and workloads. In other words, it's a PC that you use to make money. It features an Intel Xeon CPU rather than a consumer-based Intel Core CPU, and graphics are handled by an NVIDIA Quadro adapter, rather than a GeForce.

ASUS Transformer Book Trio hybrid laptop

As far as confusing products go, the ASUS Transformer Book Trio gets high marks. It's an 11.6in device with multiple identities that tries to cover off tablet, notebook, and even desktop PC or media centre needs. We know that ASUS loves to innovate, and that it’s not afraid to deviate from products that are deemed normal, but is the Transformer Book Trio worth considering over traditional devices and Windows 8 hybrids?

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
