If you’re a fan of the minimal look, a sleek all-in-one desktop computer is for you.
As many of us are now working from home, we need to accommodate space for a computer, and the best all-in-one desktop computers will offer a clean-lined look and work well for anyone who’s short on room, too.
An all-in-one computer combines all the components in one unit rather than having a separate computer tower from the monitor. They offer a more modern look, and are visually more aesthetically pleasing. They are also often quieter and more energy efficient too.
Naeem Adam, AO.com ’s computing expert, said: “All-in-one desktop computers have an array of benefits, however the biggest plus is how much space you’ll save, as you get a monitor and a computer in one. All-in-one machines also offer a more sleek, slimline look than a tower PC and screen set up, so they’re ideal if you’re looking for a stylish desk setup.
“To make your all in one set up even more efficient, we’d also recommend opting for a wireless keyboard and mouse to give a minimalist finish.”
