Apple iMac 27in All-In-One
Review of Apple iMac - Core i5 3.2 GHz - 8 GB - 1 TB - LED 27" by DamionMcCollum

Advantages: Good image quality, fast and reliable
Disadvantages: Pricey, no DVD drive and no touchscreen

Costing £1500 when reviewed, this Apple 27in iMac is both stylish and pretty powerful. It's pricy but the style alone almost makes it worth it. It's an all-in-one machine so there's no bulky casing, just what looks like a big monitor. It's equipped with a ... Read review

Welcome to Ciao! This review would be more helpful with more information. What are the graphics like, what software does it come with, what are the specs and so on. Also, you can buy an external disk drive if you wish which solves the problem of no disk drive. If you update this let me know and I will re-rate it. by sn0zb0z

Performs just as well as an iMac
Review of Apple Mac Mini - Core i7 2.3 GHz by jamieisafish

Advantages: Excellent Value for money
Disadvantages: No screen, mouse or keyboard provided.

The obvious reason for choosing a mac mini over any other mac is the price. It comes in at around a third of the price of a macbook or iMac of the same spec level. I have the 2.3GHz i7 with 16Gb of RAM. It only cost me around £800, and has all the externa ... Read review

A Life Of (Raspberry) Pi
Review of Raspberry Pi Miniature Computer by BNibbles

Advantages: Cheap, tiny, useful
Disadvantages: Limited processing power

A QUANTUM LEAP BACKWARDS In the early days of ‘home computing’, the hardware around at the time, e.g. Sinclair Spectrum, BBC B, Acorn and such-like served a dual purpose. You could run other people’s software on them, or, heaven forbid that you shoul ... Read review

Great trip down memory lane, Chris. Took me back to my old ZX81 days when I thought I was clever, learning BASIC - until I discovered that schoolkids were using machine code. I'd forgotten about RISC-OS - all our Archimedes computers at school were RISC-OS-based. Thanks for the memories. I'll stick to my PC and Nexus 7, though!...Les by Floon

Pi - simple, but not easy
Review of Raspberry Pi Miniature Computer by dobieg

Advantages: £35 gets you a basic unit
Disadvantages: Additional equipment required

You gets what you pays for – or so they say. I’ve worked in IT since 1982, although it was eight years before I eventually shelled out for a home computer, I did learn my trade, however, at the same time as the ZX80, ZX81 and Sinclair Spectrum were still ... Read review

Advantages: Fast, reliable, a superb design, lots of storage space, quiet

I and my brother are great fans of technology. At the time of purchasing this desktop a few months ago we decided that our old computer was not up to the job of even playing some PC games from 2007 and onwards. We decided then to buy a high speed gaming c ... Read review
