Why you can trust Windows Central Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out more about how we test.

Whether you're looking for something with a beautiful display like the Acer Aspire AiO, or something beautifully designed like the Dell Inspiron 27, we've got a recommendation for everyone. Even the original Surface Studio is a great pick, if you can find it for a good price.

If you're looking for a Surface Studio 2 alternative because you just can't afford the Surface Studio 2, the Surface Studio 1 is a great idea. The Surface Studio 1 and Surface Studio 2 are very similar on the outside, the only major differences being with what's on the inside. Now, the Surface Studio 1 uses older hardware, with a much less powerful GPU and slower mechanical hard drive, so keep that in mind if you do decide to go with the original Surface Studio.
