Microsoft's research shows 72 per cent of PC owners found it hard to choose PCs as there is too much choice, while 27 per cent of us spend just as long searching for one as we would do a new home.

Models featured in The Collection will be sold at PC retailers from PC World and Currys to John Lewis and Comet. Have a look at what is offered in the spring set on the Microsoft webpage. ®
