Last month, Toshiba ended its decade-long absence from the desktop market with the 21.5-inch DX1210 all-in-one (AIO) PC. Now the electronics conglomerate has effectively doubled the size of its AIO lineup by adding another product to it. The new
DX735 features a 23-inch full HD multi-touch display
with a “stylish and space-saving TV-like design.” Specs after the jump.
The DX735, which will be available exclusively from Best Buy beginning October 2, has a base price of $956.99. Toshiba wants you to factor in the
DX735’s utility as a complete “home media hub” and not just as a PC
when looking at the price.
"Our All-in-One systems blend the best of Toshiba's PC and visual product expertise for families and students looking to enjoy TV, watch DVDs and play games," said Carl Pinto, vice president of product development, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division.
Let’s turn our attention to DX735 the PC. It boasts a 2nd Generation Intel i5/i7 processor, 1TB of hard drive storage, 4GB of RAM, four USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, a DVD SuperMulti Drive and one HDMI-in port. On the entertainment front, it features “Onkyo stereo speakers professionally tuned by experts at Waves and feature Waves MaxxAudio sound.” It also packs a technology Toshiba likes to call Sleep & Music, which makes it possible for the user to use the AIO’s Onkyo speakers even when the machine is off. But that’s not all as the DX735 has one more trick up its sleeve in the form of “Resolution+ video upconversion technology that breathes new life into standard-def video and DVDs.”
