    all in one pc 18th May 19 at 9:26 AM
    Any recommendations please for above.. want to use it to stream my yoga programmes from the net so good angles and screen size, watch films etc. Will run on wi fi and internet as want to be able to move this between kitchen and a couple of other rooms. Just confused too as to what to look for. Don't want to end up with cheap and nasty with a short life. Thanks for help.

    I'd say get a laptop - moving between rooms pretty much rules out a desktop.


    Take a look at an Apple Mac and then see if anything else floats your boat.


    If it really is only for that one task, an iPad (or similar) might be a good fit.

    Any large tablet will do what you want. Or stream to your phone and 'cast' that to a TV screen.

    2018 model Ipads are available for under 250 (new).
    No reliance should be placed on the above! Absolutely none, do you hear?

    Consider getting an HDMI PC stick and plug it into the back of whichever TV you want to watch your content on. Very easy to move the stick between rooms.

    Far cheaper than a full PC.
