What are all in one computers?
All-in-one computers are pretty much exactly as they sound – they offer something for everyone:

All-in-ones are the size of a desktop but are designed to be easy packed away and carried. They are flexible, with monitors that can be used on every angle, and touchscreens can do anything a tablet can. The flexibility of computers such as these mean they are great value, whatever you need them for.
Which brand of computer is best?
JB is the home of big brands, and they don’t come any bigger than the brands in our range of computers, laptops and tablets. Brands across our entire range of computers include:
There are a few very big brands that stretch across our range of computers, such as Apple that has tablets and laptops (MacBooks), as well as a range of popular iMac desktops. Samsung is another big brand that has both laptops and tablets. If you’re thinking of getting multiple devices, having them from the same big brand can mean easier synching.
