If you’re a customer of Aio wireless--a no-annual-contract wireless provider--today’s a good day, because the company just pushed out an OTA update giving you 4G LTE service. Aio also announced that it’s expanding its coverage map of Houston, Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville and Gainesville, Fla. to include Ft. Meyers and Naples, Fla. In addition to the new 4G LTE capabilities, Aio announced a new handset, the ZTE Overture, which runs Android Jelly Bean and features a 4-inch display, 5MP rear camera and front-facing webcam-type camera, and up to 32GB of storage. Aio is actually a... 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We've hit a turning point in technology, one in which the old ways are, well, old and outdated.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...
We’ve already mentioned a little something about ASUS’ upcoming Z87-based motherboards, but ASUS has plenty of other products geared for 4th-generation Intel Core processors (Haswell), as well, including a new consumer desktop and a pair of all-in-ones. In addition to a 4th-generation Intel Core processor, the ASUS M51 desktop features NVIDIA or AMD graphics and the ASUS Smart Cooling System equipped with automatic fan speed control and a front-mounted hot-swap drive bay called the ASUS Universal Storage Module (USM). There’s also a removable UPS (uninterrupted power supply) called... Read more...
Sick of wireless contracts? Many people are, and major carriers have been looking for ways to keep those customers happy. AT&T’s solution launched today in the form of Aio (pronounced, improbably, “A-O”), a new wireless service that lets customers pay month-to-month. Right now, the service is only available in a few major cities, including Houston, Orlando, and Tampa, but AT&T has more cities in the works and expects to announce them “over the coming weeks.” All of Aio’s plans have unlimited data, text, and voice, but the rate plans determines how much...

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;...

Gaming PCs can come in all shapes and sizes, but I'm willing to bet that all-in-one isn't one of the first to come to mind. MSI would like to change that, and has built a great-looking model to help. It's called the "Wind Top AG2712", where the 27 represents the 27-inch display. With this machine, MSI claims the first gaming AIO at this size on the market. Let's tackle some specs, shall we? At the forefront, the rig comes equipped with one of Intel's best mobile processors, the Core i7-3630QM. This quad-core model features HyperThreading support and is clocked at 2.4GHz - boostable to 3.4GHz with... Read more...
Just last week, ASUS announced the Transformer AiO, an all-in-one that converts to a (very large) tablet for on-the-go computing; today, Dell is following suit with the release of the Dell XPS 18, which is also a portable AIO PC. The XPS 18 is powered by up to an Intel Core i7 (Ivy Bridge) processor and up to Intel HD 4000-series graphics. The display is 18.4 inches (1080p full HD), and there’s a 720p HD webcam and dual-array microphone on the front for video chatting. Users can opt for up to 8GB of DDR3-1600MHz RAM, and storage options include up to a 512GB mSATA flash module and 500GB SATA... Read more...
As the PC and mobile markets continue to evolve and cross-pollinate, plenty of companies are massaging form factors to better suit users’ varied needs. ASUS has been working on that as much as anyone, and its latest design is an all-in-one PC called the Transformer AiO that doubles as both a decently-appointed desktop and a solid tablet. In desktop mode, the computer features an Intel Core i5-3350P processor, NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M (2GB) graphics, 8GB of DDR3-1600MHz RAM, 1TB HDD, a SuperMulti DVD drive, and a 1MP front-facing webcam. It runs Windows 8 and offers 802.11a/b/g/n dual-band WiFi,... Read more...
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...
