Top 5 Best 27-inch All-In-One (AIO) Desktop PCs with Core i7 Processors

Share Our Post

Big 27-inch All-In-One PCs are as big as the iMac 27-inch but not nearly as high resolution as 5K on the iMac. Some displays are Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) while others are UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels). Naturally, our choice will be to go for ones with UHD display but this will push the price up significantly.

There are also two Intel Core i7 processors in use. The Intel® Core™ i7-8700T hexa-core and the Intel Core i7-8550U quad-core. Both are fully capable and powerful CPUs offering fast and responsive experience on any computer. The speed of the processors are show below:

  • Intel® Core™ i7-8700T Hexa-core (2.4 GHz base frequency, up to 4 GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, 12 MB cache, 6 cores)
  • Intel® Core™ i7-8550U Processor Quad-core (1.8 GHz base frequency, up to 4.0 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology, 8 MB cache, 4 cores)

The trick is to overcome the memory and storage limitations. Pick a machine with more memory 8GB or more, for better multitasking and faster app switching. For storage, pick a machine that uses the fast solid state drive. Most high-end machines come with a combination of SSD and HDD so you get the best of both worlds, fast and bountiful storage. Using faster storage lets you load applications and move files quickly.

Top 5 Best 27-inch All-In-One PC

1. DELL Inspiron 7000 All-in-One PC 27-inch (Intel Core i7)

The Dell Inspiron 7000 all-in-one PC that features a big expansive display measuring 27-inch diagonally. As with Dell, the Inspiron 7000 is customisable and available with any configuration that your heart desires. TheUHD graphics 630 gives you a thrilling experience in the world of both real and virtual. But as we are compiling a list of AIOs with Core i7 CPU, the Inspiron 7000 we chose comes with the 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-8700T processor (12MB Cache, up to 4.0 GHz), nothing less.

As the system uses a combination of SSD and HDD for storage, a tweak in the Windows settings is required to change the default location for where documents and files are saved. This is typically on the same drive as the operating system, the C drive. Change this to the spacious D drive.

Performance is just amazing, it blazes through all the tasks we had to do including browsing the Internet, using desktop applications and playing games. Thanks to its processor and graphics card everything you do is fast and responsive. The Infinity display makes every look great too.

Like the small Inspiron 5000 that top our list for the 24-inch variety, the Dell Inspiron 7000 also features InfinityEdge display and pop-up web cam. It also comes with built-in speakers but what we are most excited about is the Ultra HD display. And, for the gamers out there, you will be glad to know that not only will you get a super sharp and big display but a powerful graphics card to boot.

2. HP Pavilion 27 All-In-One PC 270-inch (Intel Core i7)

The HP Pavilion brings style and performance right to your doorstep. HP has done it again, the all silver finish, matching keyboard and mouse does let it stand out from the boring black panels we have seen. What is more, the 27-inch display is a Quad HD panel making everything super sharp and crisp. It even comes with DVD writer and 3-in-1 memory card reader.

If you have seen the HP Pavilion 27-inch monitor, the HP Pavilion 27 All-In-One PC is not very different safe for the bigger bezel to house the camera. The 27-inch display is bright and sharp. Some of the USB ports are located at the bottom of the display which makes it difficult to access.

With an industry-leading 8th generation Intel Core i7-8700T hexa-core processor, 8GB RAM and a combination of 128GB super fast SSD storage plus 2TB hard disk drive will chew and spit out everything you throw at it at break neck speed. You will have the power and storage to do it all. We would have liked it if there is more memory but 8GB is plenty for most things. Then there is the discrete AMD Radeon 530 graphics with 2GB dedicated graphics memory to open up doors to the gaming world for anybody.

The HP Pavilion 27 is not only fast but runs silent too. The touchscreen is a great addition especially on a large screen like this.

Another entry from HP, this time the HP Envy All-In-One PC also with 27-inch Ultra HD monitor but with integrated touchscreen. It also takes on a whole new design language, one that is darker and more rectangular with sharp edges while maintaining a mysterious and sleek outlook. It differentiate itself from the rest where instead of jamming all the components behind the display, HP has opted instead to use a set-top box styled base. This is the machine that will make iMac users green with envy especially when it supports touch.

If you wish to stand out or make a statement, this is the machine to do it with. It combines a modern design with cutting-edge power. It also has the biggest SSD and HDD storage combo and a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics processor. Plus, don’t forget the all powerful Intel® Core™ i7-8700T hexa-core CPU.

One thing we like about the display besides it being UHD and touch enabled is that it is attached on a hinge that allows it to tilt up to back up to 35° back. It may not be 45° back to make it flat like MS Surface Studio but at that angle and with touch support, it feels a lot like a Studio.
