Wtih all the recent emphasis on touchscreen computing and space saving designs, all-in-one PCs are suddenly in vogue. AIOs are typically more attractive than traditional desktop PCs and are great for placing in areas where you normally wouldn't have a PC, like in the kitchen or other non home office locations. But one area where AIOs still need to improve is in overall performance. Acer thinks it has it all figured out with its new Aspire Z5761.
HP's new Omni Pro 110 all-in-one (AIO) PC is all business and is "easy to setup, easy to use, and easy to maintain." It's a fairly compact AIO, measuring 20 inches (W) x 8.6 inches (D) x 16 inches (H) and checking in at 16.8 pounds (or more, depending on configuration). Going along with the business theme, the Omni Pro 110 has a 20-inch 1600x900 display that isn't touch compatible.
With all-in-one (AIO) PCs driving most of the growth within the non-mobile computer market, it is no surprise that vendors are increasingly focusing on this lucrative category. Taiwan-based Asus is also constantly trying to raise its all-in-one game. The ET2700 is its latest play for dominance in the burgeoning market for AIOs. Hit the jump to see the ET2700 in action.
MSI added another all-in-one (AIO) PC to its Wind Top lineup today, the AE2050. Boasting a 20-inch high-definition 16:9 display (1600x900 resolution) with optional multi-touch panel, the AE2050 swings AMD's way with a dual-core E-350 processor (1.6GHz), AMD A50M chipset, and Radeon HD 6310 discrete graphics.
Soon after HP acquired Palm last April, then CEO Mark Hurd stated the company’s desire of taking webOS “beyond smartphones.” The company today gave the world a better look into the operating system’s future beyond smartphones at its “Think Beyond” event in San Francisco, lifting the curtain on a 10-inch webOS tablet. But for those who think that tablets are just as far as HP is willing to go with its “beyond smartphones” strategy for webOS, the world’s leading PC vendor is out to surprise you. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s “hit the jump” time once again.
There's a new all-in-one PC on the block. It's the Radius EX by NextComputing, the company's newest portable workstation that's supposed to offer "desktop-class computing performance in a transportable, all-in-one design."
Front and center is a 17-inch 1920-1200 display protected by a durable aluminum alloy chassis with a padded leather handle. The rig can be configured with a single Intel Core i7 processor or dual Xeon 5600 series chips. Other features and options include seven PCI-Express card slots, up to 48GB of RAM, support for up to 15 SATA or 12 SAS 12.5-inch fixed internal hard drives, and in internal DVD writer.
No word on how much the Radius EX runs, though you can request a quote here.
Priced $1,899, the all-in-one is stuffed with some powerful organs, including an Intel Core i7-740QM (1.73Ghz) processor, 8GB DDR3 RAM, and NVidia NV GTX 460M 3D graphics card with 1.5GB VRAM. It features a 23.6" multi-touch 3D display with full HD (1920x1080) resolution.
Other specs include a 1TB 7200RPM spinning drive, a Blu-ray optical drive, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, three USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports and Windows 7 Home Premium.
All-in-one (AIO) desktops are fast becoming all the rage, and Gateway is well aware of their growing popularity. But don't take our word for it, straight from the horse's mouth:
"The demand fo all-in-one desktop PCs took off last year with the introduction of Windows 7 and its touch screen capabilities, and as the technology became more powerful and less expensive," said Steve Smith, senior business manager of consumer desktops, Acer America.
That's not a typo, Acer owns Gateway. But back to the point, Gateway today announced a couple of new additions to its existing ZX One series, the 21.5-inch Gateway One ZX4951 ($900) and 23-inch ZX6951 ($1,000). Both models sport a new look with a curved bottom edge and glossy black bezel with chrome and silver accents.
From a feature standpoint, the ZX4951 comes with an Intel Pentium G6950 processor (2.8GHz), 4GB of DDR3 memory, 500GB hard drive, Blu-ray drive, Intel HD graphics, Wireless-N, and the typical assortment of ports and amenities. For $100 more, the ZX6951 bumps the processor to an Intel Core i3 550 (3.2GHz) and increases the HDD to 640GB.
Hewlett-Packard has announced two new all-in-one (AIO) desktops with an eye on the upcoming holiday season. The world's leading PC maker has embarked on a generational overhaul, or so it claims, with the new TouchSmart 310 PC. According to the company, the TouchSmart 310 is “the fourth generation of the HP TouchSmartPC.” Aesthetically, the multitouch AIO is markedly different from its antecedents. Actually, it is closer to the iMac than its elder cognates as far as looks go.
The 310 features a 20-inch touch screen, AMD Athlon II 240e dual-core processor, 4GB of RAM, a 1-TB hard drive, DVD burner, and ATI Radeon HD 4270 graphics. The basic SKU will be available for $699. Before we move onto the second AIO, it is worth mentioning that HP has also revamped the TouchSmart software interface. Furthermore, there are a bunch of new built-for-touch apps, including Marvel Comics, Facebook and Cartoon Network, to go along with the cosmetic changes. The Marvel Comics app is particularly exciting as it can be used to access more than 8,000 comics (paid).
Finally, let us move onto the second AIO, the Omni 100, which is a non-touch PC built around a dual-core AMD Athlon II 260u CPU. The $499 all-in-one features a 20-inch display, 3GB RAM and a 500GB hard drive. Both the PCs are “planned to be available Sept. 22 at www.hpdirect.com and at select retailers nationwide on Oct. 24.”
MSI today announced it is taking its Wind Top AE2420 3D stateside. According to MSI, this latest Wind Top is the world's first 3D touchscreen all-in-one (AIO) PC, which is also capable of converting 2D content into three dimensions.
"Most people don't realize that MSI has been making the guts of PCs for more than 20 years, and were the first to launch the 10-inch netbook, which is now the most popular form factor on the market," said Andy Tung, vice president of sales, MSI U.S. "By bringing the world's first 3D all-in-one PC to North America, MSI is continuing to introduce people to the future of computing."
The main attraction, of course, is the 23.6-inch LED backlit display where the 3D magic comes to life. In and around the AIO sits some fairly powerful hardware and respectable feature-set, including an Intel Core i7 860 processor clocked at 2.8GHz, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 graphics with 1GB of GDDR3 memory, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 801.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, a 1TB SATA hard drive, Blu-ray/DVD burner combo, 1.3MP webcam, 6-in-1 memory card reader, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, eSATA, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
In addition to the 3D visuals, MSI is making noise over the AE2420's sound system. Two 5W speakers are flanked by a 10W subwoofer and include Creative's THX TruStudio Pro technology.
The Wind Top AE2420 will be available soon starting at $1,800.
