Desktop PCs have gone through a lot of changes in the last few years.   It seems like only yesterday that we were navigating Granny's Garden on the ol' BBC.  

But in this portable age, many critics are predicting the demise of the Desktop PC; we beg to differ.  We believe the desktop is being reborn, redefined and revolutionised.  You've got the touchscreen,  the all-in-one, the super slim entertainment hub, and leading the way is the  HP ENVY Recline.  HP ENVY ReclineHp Reclines

This slick all-in-one offers you the versatility of a tablet, but packs the punch of a desktop PC.  Perfect for games, entertainment and music, the Recline offers lightning fast speeds with its 4th Gen i5 Processor and brilliant sound from its built-in Beats speakers.  And with its 10 point touchscreen, it's perfect for all your Windows 8 Office needs.


Competition time!

Feeling a little desktop ENVY?  We thought so. 

Thankfully we're offering you the chance to replace your current clunky counterpart with a HP ENVY Recline Beats Edition.  Just send us a photo of your old desktop on either our Facebook Page or via Twitter, and tag it  #DesktopENVY #TBT for a chance to win.
