We spent 28 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. Touchscreens are an effective way to increase computing productivity, and thanks to today's ever-shrinking components, there's a host of desktops available offering this functionality. Whether you're a student with a limited workspace, a professional who wants to maximize their efficiency, or an administrator looking to equip an entire organization, one or more of these PCs should serve you well. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best touchscreen desktop computer on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

January 28, 2019:

If having a touch display is imperative to your daily workflow, or you just want to up your multimedia game, a desktop all-in-one is definitely worth consideration. The very best of the best touch-enabled computers is almost certainly the second-generation Microsoft Surface Studio, though it will set you back multiple thousands of dollars, which makes it a non-starter for many users. On the other side of the coin is the low-end Dell Inspiron, which really isn't very fast, but boy, is it cheap by comparison. Dell's Optiplex and XPS are, however, quite quick to react, and don't cost a ton themselves. Asus also makes multiple worthwhile models, depending on your overall needs. In the middle of the pack is the HP Pavilion, which, again, is offered in several configurations, most of which are great PCs for the money. If you plan to play games on your all-in-one, keep an eye out for a discrete graphics card, such as the one in the HP Envy, which is an excellent performer, though it is a touch costly. And if you're on a thin budget, with a similarly small workspace, the Acer is hard to beat; in fact, it's barely any larger or heavier than a laptop, though it's considerably faster and brighter than a comparably priced clamshell.
