Top rated desktop PCs: February 2012

Our top rated PCs for February 2012

We've seen a couple of gaming powerhouses from Origin and Alienware recently, as well as an all-in-one TouchSmart from HP and a classy little business machine from Lenovo.

The Origin Genesis z68 gaming PC is one of the best built machines on the market, and its performance is certainly nothing to scoff at. The Alienware is also a cool machine, but at close to $6000, who can afford it?

At the other end of the scale, the latest Medion Akoya to hit ALDI supermarkets on 8 February is a $499 PC with a small size and a decent set of features for everyday computing.
