    My wife is in the process of setting up her new business and is looking at buying 5 desktop PCs to replace the old ones.
    Looking on the Dell website, they have what they call their Inspiron Small Desktop with 22" monitor. Specs are low but will only be used to access usual office apps via Office 365 and their cloud-based business packages though the internet.
    Anywhere else that worth looking that provides a reasonable product?

    Have a look at the offerings from HP and Lenovo, they're usually cheaper to buy from a reseller rather than direct.

    Those two along with Dell are the top three market leaders.

    Depending on her requirements she might want to look at PCaaS (PC as a Service), they all offer it, it's not cheap, but it becomes an opex rather than a capex and generally you get fully hardware/software support included.

    I've not much experience with HP, but Dell and Lenovo makes some good ultra small Form Factor PC's that you can mount to the back of monitors using the vesa mount.

    Lenovo
    Also Look at pre-loved stuff too.
    Mate of mine does a top lease deal for Charities & small business on a monthly fee with Helpdesk thrown in - can find out if you're interested. Main Business is running IT in Schools so they've got the support infrastructure in place from that.
