is a boutique PC builder known for, among other things, its Zeus line of custom gaming rigs
, and the company is lending the brand name to a new series of all-in-one desktops, as well. The Zeus Touch series is now available and includes the Zeus
Touch 1000, 2000, and 3000.
s were made with a “minimalist tablet-like design” in mind, and all of them feature a 21.5-inch (1920x1080), ten-point touch LED display and Windows 8
. They run 3rd-generation Intel processors (any of the three models can be configured with up to an Intel Core i7-3770S), H77 Express motherboards, 24x DVD+/-R/RW optical drives, and Intel HD 2500 or 4000 graphics. Memory and storage configurations vary widely, although the Zeus Touch 1000 and 2000 models start with 8GB of RAM/1TB (7200RPM) HDD and 8GB RAM/2TB (7200RPM) HDD, respectively, while the Zeus Touch 3000 sports 16GB of RAM and a 2TB (7200RPM) HDD.
Other amenities include USB 3.0, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, built-in media card reader, and 1MP webcam.
A major selling point of these particular AIOs is that CyberPowerPC wisely designed the Zeus Touch PCs to be fully expandable, so you aren’t locked in to all the original hardware. Granted, there’s a limit to that--there’s not exactly room in the slim chassis for a monster graphics card--but it does appear that the processor, memory, HDD/SSD, optical drive, and PCI expansion cards can be swapped out by the end user.
The three Zeus Touch PCs come with a 3-year warranty and start at $899, $1099, and $1199, respectively, and of course those prices will slide up or down depending on what configuration options you choose.
