If you’re feeling nostalgic (or just want to save a buck), you can still buy a Gateway computer; Acer snapped up the brand a few years back and is still producing PCs under the label. The latest round of Gateways is nigh, and the lineup features both notebooks and desktops, including an AIO. There are two Gateway NE notebooks in the family--a 15.6-inch model and a 17.3-incher. Buyers can configure them accordingly, but the lowest-end model starts at $379.99. A 15.6-inch NE52204u with a quad-core AMD A4-5000 APU, 8GB of DDR3L memory, and a 500GB hard drive (5400 RPM) costs $399.99, while a... Read more...
With just a handful of exceptions, all-in-one (AIO) systems aren't exactly known for being easy to service and/or upgrade. We've seen a few AIOs that buck the unfortunate anti-DIY trend, and it appears Acer's new Veriton Z Series 20-inch class AIOs will fall into the user-friendly category as well. Acer's new AIOs feature a screw-less chassis design and modular components for easy maintenance and upgrades, the OEM says. There are two models, both offering consumers a choice of either Windows 8 Pro or Windows 7 Professional. The Acer Veriton Z2640G-UC1007X sports an Intel Celeron 1007U processor... Read more...
We're starting to see mobile all-in-one (AIO) systems emerge in the marketplace, and in case you missed it, check out evaluation of Dell's XPS 18. Dell isn't the only system builder getting in on the action, however, as HP's Envy Rove 20 is headed to retail this Sunday with a bigger screen than the XPS 18 and Intel's Haswell platform inside starting at $980. Mobile AIOs are full-fledged systems with detachable displays that function a large-size tablet. The idea isn't to tote around a 20-inch display around town, but for tabletop computing or catching up with your Facebook feed from bed, to list... Read more...
Dell has chosen to combine two trending computing design styles into a single system and call it the XPS 18 Portable All-In-One Desktop. It has all the power of a an entry level desktop and some of the portability of a tablet, though let's be clear that Dell isn't pitching you'll want to tote this across town on a train or in other ways that you might use an iPad or Nexus 7. It's portable in the sense that you can snatch up the 18.4-inch Full HD display and lug it from your home office to the living room, plop it on the table, and switch gears from Google Docs to gaming with the kids. Or take it... Read more...
We've hit a turning point in technology, one in which the old ways are, well, old and outdated. Traditional desktops still exist, sure, but bulky towers are fading right before our eyes just like that scene in Back to the Future where the people in Marty's photograph slowly disappear. In place of medium and large-size rectangular boxes are space-saving form factors like Intel's Next Unit of Computing (NUC) and, to a lesser extreme, sleek looking all-in-one (AIO) designs that are winning favor among consumers. At the same time this is happening, increasingly powerful mobile devices are flooding... Read more...
In case you haven't noticed, the line is becoming increasingly blurred between varying types of PCs that used to have a single purpose. Not anymore. Following the introduction of Windows 8, we've seen several hybrid convertibles, including some funky designs, and that flexible approach to computing is being extended wherever OEMs feel there's a market. For HP, that means releasing an all-in-one (AIO) desktop that is anything but stationary. HP's new ENVY Rove 20 is being billed as a mobile AIO -- the company's first, in fact -- that's no longer tied to the desk. It goes from being upright to completely... Read more...
Believe it or not, MSI's AE1941 all-in-one (AIO) PC has less fans than Vanilla Ice at a bluegrass festival to benefit modern musicians and singers. That's to say it's entirely fanless, a design that MSI claims is an industry first in the AIO category, and we'd be weary of that decision if not for the inclusion of an Intel Celeron 874 processor, an Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) chip that shouldn't produce a ton of heat. It also has 4GB of DDR3-1333 memory, which is as much as the single DIMM slot can handle; 320GB hard drive; Intel HD Graphics; 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi; DVD burner; 3-in-1 memory card reader;...

The all-in-one PC form factor is a brilliant, if not obvious, evolution of the desktop computer. AIO systems offer the maximum amount of screen real estate while drastically minimizing the total footprint of the computer by packing all the components inside the monitor (or in the case of this particular AIO, the base of the stand). Even better, now that ten-finger touch input is de rigeur, these machines offer new methods of computer interaction that are alternately ideal for wide-eyed youngsters, old luddites, and seasoned power users. (Give a toddler a touchscreen and she’ll figure out... Read more...

Microsoft likes to point out that Windows 8 represents a re-imagining of the Windows platform, and going along with that theme, Redmond's OEM partners are stepping outside the bounds of what constitutes a typical PC. A good example of this is Lenovo's IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC, or the world's first interpersonal PC, as Lenovo describes it. Based on the same concept as a convertible notebook, the Horizon can lay flat on any surface, but it's far too large to call a tablet. The 27-inch display allows for two or more people to use the screen at the same time and is ideally suited for touchscreen... Read more...
CyberPowerPC 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. The AIOs 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,... Read more...
Lenovo is targeting home entertainment with the introduction of its new IdeaCentre Q190 desktop and new additions to the company's C-Series all-in-one family. The IdeaCentre Q190 desktop is touted as "the world’s smallest full-function desktop PC." It measures just 22 mm (0.86 inches) wide. Looking at the specs, you can tell the IdeaCentre Q190 is configured with entertainment in mind. The IdeaCentre Q190 features full HD graphics, up to 7.1 surround sound, and an optional Blu-ray drive. You can also purchase an optional compact wireless multimedia remote with built-in mini backlit keyboard... Read more...
MSI announced the new 27-inch AE2712 and AE2712G All-in-One PCs. Featuring a 27-inch HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080, the new AE2712 and AE2712G AIOs support up to 10 multi-touch points and feature a frameless design. Thanks to its touch display, the new Wind Top AE2712 and AE2712G AIOs are ideal for use with Windows 8, which comes preloaded on the machines. The frameless design also works well with touch, enabling users to slide freely on the surface and corners without interference. As another benefit of the frameless design, dust doesn't get caught in the nooks and edges of the display. ... Read more...
ViewSonic announced a new touch screen desktop display known as the VSD220 Smart Display. The VSD220 pairs a 22-inch 1920x1080 full-HD resolution monitor with a Texas Instruments dual-core, ARM-based OMAP 4 processor and the Android 4.0 operating system. The VSD220 is designed for surfing the web, using social networks, and running Android apps. To facilitate these uses, the VSD220 offers RJ45 Ethernet and 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity. You'll also find a 1.2 megapixel webcam and integrated microphone on the VSD220 designed for videoconferencing and photo taking. In addition to using the display... Read more...
