Desktop Computers for Speed, Productivity, and Fun
The desktop computer is one of the best ways to get the most computing bang for your buck.

Sometimes considered the older brother of the laptop, today’s desktop computer offers, bar none, the most powerful computing experience possible. Future Shop carries a varied selection of PCs to choose from, from all the top brands like HP, Apple (iMac and Mac mini), ASUS, Acer, and Gateway . So whether you’re looking for a central machine that the whole family can use at home, or a more powerful machine that can take on tough tasks in your office or home business, we have a huge selection of desktops that can get the job done. But, what do you look for?
All-in-One Desktop Computers
The all-in-one computer form factor has been growing in popularity in recent years. These computers pack all of the main hardware, including the processor, memory, and display, into a single sleek and attractive design – no more bulky CPU box sitting under your desk. Many all-in-one computers incorporate touchscreen displays so you can intuitively tap and swipe through your files. Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system was optimized for these touchscreen computers, making it easy to use for any member of the family.
Apple iMac and Mac mini Desktop Computers
Apple helped drive the popularity of all-in-one computers with their iconic iMac desktops. These slim, gorgeous, and powerful computers are well designed, filled with innovative technologies, and enhance the décor of any room. For those people looking for a smaller form factor the Mac mini desktop computer is a great solution. It features a compact design that connects to the monitor, keyboard, and mouse you already have.
Since desktop computers are easily able to handle most regular computing tasks, like browsing Internet web pages, checking email, watching movies, browsing photos, and listening to music, they’re often used as the main computer in many homes.
Performance and Gaming Computers
If you want to do a little more than play music and surf the web with your desktop, a more powerful machine is what you’re looking for. Today’s top-tier desktop computer comes with more power than most people can use, including Intel and AMD’s new top-of-the-line processor offerings, more GBs of RAM than you have limbs, and graphics cards that render with the precision, clarity, and colour of the human eye. They’re also available with tons of great features like Blu-ray players, built-in WiFi, as well as USB 3.0 and HDMI connectivity, making them the ultimate multimedia workhorse. These PCs tend to handle everything from HD video editing and gaming like a knife cutting through butter. Since desktop computers are generally easier to modify than laptops, it’s easy to upgrade PC capabilities with new hardware and features.
