How To Choose Your PC

Mini-PCs, all-in-ones, and even a PC the size of a USB key. Well, you can see that Intel-based desktops come in a vast range of shapes and sizes, catering for just about any need.

So how do you even begin to choose between these different options? First, consider what you’re using your desktop PC for. Do you need a lot grunt for content creation, or do you need it to power digital signage for your shopfront? If you’re after speed, power, and graphics, and something that can manage intensive applications and workloads, consider a desktop tower. An all-in-one device, on the other hand, is a sleek option combining the tower and monitor into one streamlined system. Some designs can even convert into a large touchscreen tablet so you can move it from room to room. Media and gaming desktops will give you extreme performance, so you can take advantage of over-clocking and Intel turbo-boost technology.

There are many PCs which use less power than a desktop tower so you can free up budget for other priorities, without compromising on computing performance. Workstations are another desktop with a lot of grunt. These are customizable so you can figure a processor, memory, integrated graphics, and storage for your needs. Intel-based models are optimised for over 15 of the most-used workstation and CAD-based apps. So aside from the incredible range of styles available, from small designs, such as an Intel NUC powering your PC or digital signage, to a sleek, portable all-in-one device, there are significant performance enhancements, versus a five-year-old desktop, including 31 percent better office productivity, 51 percent better web performance, and 66 percent better media editing.

With more options than ever before, there’s never been a better time to upgrade.
