Depending on where you live, it is just a matter of weeks before school is once again in session. In preparation for the back-to-school shopping season that for many has already begun, HP has gone and revamped its Pavilion all-in-one (AIO) lineup with new digs and upgraded components. And rather than focus on a single task, the retooled systems can be flexibly configured to tackle a variety of subjects, even gaming. "We listened to our customers when redesigning the HP Pavilion All-in-One to ensure we’re bringing features consumers crave, making it the perfect overall family PC," said Kevin Frost,...

Over the past couple of years, Dell has been driving a widespread redesign effort of its consumer and commercial product lines and has been systematically been updating both design signatures and the technology platforms within them. Dell's premium consumer XPS product line, perhaps more so than any, has seen the most significant design reinvention, with features that could be classified as "iconic," as with the company's XPS 13 and XPS 15 laptops that employ Dell's Infinity Edge display technology and premium carbon fiber composite materials.  Today, Dell is taking the redesign of their XPS...

One thing Microsoft is putting a lot of focus on with its next major update for Windows 10 is content creation, hence why it is called the Creators Update. It will introduce several new features designed to bring ideas to life in 3D, but what good is the software without the hardware? To help take advantage of those features, Dell is introducing a new touch input device called Canvas that could help artists and other creative individuals interact with Windows 10 in a more natural way. If oversimplifying things, Canvas is a 27-inch touch-sensitive secondary display with a 2560x1440 (QHD) resolution.... Read more...
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is barely more than a week away, but not every company is waiting for the annual convention in Las Vegas to show off their new product lines. In an effort to beat the rush, Acer today unveiled its new Aspire C Series of incredibly thin all-in-one systems measuring a scant 8mm, which is thinner than some smartphones, and starting at an affordable $450. These are sleek and sexy machines with brushed metal backs, optional gold accents, and a stand made out of metal to ensure a sturdy foundation. They're also ergonomic—Acer says users can adjust the display from... Read more...
Microsoft recently announced its first desktop PC, the Surface Studio, a sleek looking all-in-one with some unique features. As is the trend these days, the Surface Studio is pretty thin. It's also not a system that is easy to repair at home, a teardown analysis reveals. Much of the reason for that is because Microsoft opted to solder several key components to the motherboard. Getting into the 21-pound Surface Studio isn't all that difficult, though finding a pathway isn't all that obvious, either. Flipping the AIO on its base reveals a strip of air vents that border the entire bottom panel. In... Read more...
Get ready folks, Microsoft has some cool new stuff to showcase at the end of October, and we have a pretty good idea at what the folks in Redmond have in store. Over the past week, both a Surface-branded keyboard and mouse have leaked onto the internet. These peripherals lead great credence to the arrival of a Surface all-in-one PC, which has been rumored for months. The all-in-one is reportedly being developed under the codename Surface Cardinal and will be the consumer equivalent of Microsoft’s high-end Surface Hub presentation tools. Based on earlier reports, the Surface all-in-one could be... Read more...
Microsoft took the bull by the horns when it released its Surface tablet, a 2-in-1 device that showed its hardware partners exactly what kind of machine it was picturing for a universal operating system like Windows 8 (and now Windows 10), and now it appears the Redmond outfit will do the same in the all-in-one category. There are multiple reports suggesting a Surface AIO is in the works. This time around, Microsoft doesn't have a point to prove, as the AIO category is pretty well established. However, with its Surface line doing so well in the tablet (Surface Pro 4) and laptop (Surface Book) categories,... Read more...
It wasn't long ago when using "gaming" and "all-in-one" in the same sentence would elicit funny or otherwise puzzled stares. And now? While not ubiquitous, AIO systems with gaming chops are much more common and quickly growing in number. You can add to their ranks MSI's upgraded Gaming 24, a Skylake-H powered AIO with discrete graphics.Customers can choose between an Intel Core i5-6300HQ or Core i7-6700HQ. The former is a quad-core chip clocked at 2.3GHz to 3.2GHz with 6MB of cache, while the latter ups the ante with slightly faster clockspeeds (2.6GHz to 3.5GHz) and Hyper Threading support. It...

It’s been quite some time since we last looked at an all-in-one PC. Although there is clearly a niche market for AiOs, the product segment has always kept a consistent rythm in all facets of computing - consumer, enterprise and SMB. These types of systems appeal to style-conscious users and businesses that need computing utility with good looks, that blends in and stays out of the way. And though many are not powerhouses, a few do catch our enthusiast eye, and one of those few is the Asus Zen AiO Pro Z240IC, which Asus is billing as “The pinnacle of Windows all-in-one PCs.”That may be a stretch...

If you're a believer that "Gold is best!," you're going to love the Midas touch ASUS employed to its newest all-in-one system, the Zen AiO Pro. It's a well designed 23.8-inch AIO sporting an anodized all-aluminum body that will draw inevitable comparisons to Apple's iMac series, but with an "Icicle Gold" color scheme. "The Zen AiO Pro is a masterpiece of craftsmanship and design, with a slim unibody shell and integral stand forged from aluminum," ASUS explains. "The sophisticated appearance is enhanced by a layer of edge-to-edge glass covering the display, while the rear cover has a brushed-metal... Read more...
Samsung teased us with its curvaceous ATIV One 7 Curved All-in-One desktop PC just ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, a rather attractive looking system (from the pictures we've seen) that was scheduled to hit store shelves in the first quarter of this year. In keeping with that promise, the ATIV One 7 is now available to order direct from Samsung for $1,300.The star of the show here is the 27-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) curved display. It's perched on top of a metal stand and features what Samsung calls a metallic deco frame. Admittedly, there's a bit of tech sex appeal... Read more...
Samsung has gone completely gaga for curved screens. Last year, the company introduced the Galaxy Round smartphone, and this year broke out the innovative Galaxy Note Edge, which features a curved display on the right-hand side of the device. And let’s not forget about the company’s growing lineup of curved PC displays and televisions. Now Samsung is branching out even further with the introduction of the ATIV One 7 Curved all-in-one PC. The focal point of the PC is of course the 27” curved display, which features what Samsung calls a “metallic deco frame” and metallic stand. Despite the slight... Read more...
Apple made a splash during its press event earlier in the week by introducing a new 27-inch iMac model with a 5K "Retina" display. That's not a typo -- at a time when PC sales are still trending in the wrong direction, Apple decided the best way to spark renewed interest into its line of all-in-one systems was by skipping over 4K with a more pixelicious 5K panel. Resolution aside, is the refreshed iMac any easier to tear into than previous models? In a word, no. However, there are some upsides to the iMac's overall design that DIY repair folk (and upgraders) will appreciate. The folks at iFixIt... Read more...
Welcome to the era of dual-mode devices, where the mantra "bigger is better" rules the day. Need an example? Take smartphones -- Samsung's been serving up large size handsets for the past several years, some of which are so big that it warranted creating a brand new category. Even Apple jumped on the big device bandwagon with the recent launch of its iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models. Do you know what you end up with if you take that same mantra and apply it to PCs? You get "Dell's XPS 18 Portable All-in-One Desktop with Touch," a hybrid system that turns a giant sized Windows 8.1 tablet into a... Read more...
