Long-time enthusiast will remember the Corsair Hydro H50. It was one of the first closed-loop water coolers on the market and it changed the game. Though the H50 was popular at the time of its release, it was a bit of a head-scratcher, because its performance and installation weren't ideal. Consumers bought it up though, and AIO water coolers were off and running. That was Corsair's first entry into the market, however, and things have gotten considerably better since. It seems as if each new AIO liquid-cooler released by Corsair has improved on their original designs, so much so that closed loop coolers are performing at levels approaching much more expensive custom water cooling loops. In the... Read more...
Anyone who is the minimalist type wanting as little as possible on and around their workspace -- at home or in the office -- will like what ASUS has cooked up with its new all-in-one desktop PC. The machine is called the Zen AiO 27 and as the name suggests, the machine has a 27-inch screen that supports native 4K resolution with HDR. ASUS uses a NanoEdge PANTONE validated touch panel with 100% sRGB color gamut coverage with high color accuracy and a Delta-E value of less than 3.0. ASUS also wraps in some other interesting features, like a computer base that supports 7.5W Qi wireless charging; that means users can toss a device supporting Qi onto the base and charge it up with no extra wires or...

HP has rolled out a newly refreshed line up of notebook computers, convertible machines, all-in-ones, displays, and other devices. There is a wide mixture of machines aimed at consumers and business users. One of the business-focused machines is the HP Elite 1000 series, HP says these machines are among the world's most secure and manageable PCs. The series features the HP Endpoint Security Controller, HP Sure Start Gen4, and HP Sure Run. One of the machines in that series is the EliteBook x360 1030 G3, which HP says it is the first device to feature HP Sure Recover with Embedded Reimaging. That option allows the software system image to be stored in embedded memory so that data recovery can... Read more...
We have been experimenting with AMD’s Ryzen 5 processors here at HotHardware and while they have already proven to be a great value, we wanted to explore some different mainstream cooling options to see what kind of additional goodness we could extract from the processors. All-in-one liquid coolers are not quite as nice looking or as potentially high-performance as a custom built system that can employ hard line tubing and multi-waterblock arrangements, but they are still a step up from many air coolers and don’t require the same hefty investment. This makes all-in-one liquid coolers very appealing for mid-range gaming setups where maximizing performance per dollar is often the goal.... Read more...
Dell has continued to push the recent design innovations of its premium XPS family further down its product stack, in an effort to enhance its mainstream consumer products as well. When we reviewed Dell’s XPS 27 7760 All-in-One desktop PC earlier this year, we were impressed with its performance, features, and design aesthetic, including its impressive sound system. Continuing that effort to marry both form and function, we received the new Dell Inspiron 27 7000 All-in-One desktop for review. It turns out this system was the winner of a 2017 COMPUTEX Design and Innovation Award, but it has been updated since then. In addition, the model we have in for testing happens to be powered by something... Read more...
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, vice president and general manager, Consumer Personal Systems, Displays & Accessories at HP....

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 -5 to +20 degrees (15 degrees titled back or 5 degrees tilted forward), though the AIOs do not support... 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 each of the four corners there is a rubber foot. Each one hides a Torx screw that must be removed in... Read more...
HP woke up this week and decided it was high time it flooded the market with new and updated devices. The company unveiled a flashy gaming laptop under its Pavilion line, an 8-inch tablet that slots into a 10-inch keyboard dock, and several more items. One that really catches our eye, however, is a new all-in-one system with a curved display.It's the HP Envy All-in-One and it boasts a massive 34-inch curved screen with a Quad HD+ resolution, or 3440x1440. That works out to a pixel density of 109 ppi and a 21:9 aspect ratio, the latter of which provides a ton of horizontal screen real estate. According to HP, it's the widest curved AIO on the planet.Forget about integrated graphics on the CPU.... 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 in the design, though there's no mention of whether the display is rocking a high-quality In-Plane... Read more...
All in one systems are all about balance.  Attempting to cram an entire PC’s worth of components into the back of what amounts to a slightly wider-than-normal display can be an iffy proposition. Pare down the specifications too much and you wind up with a limp machine that’s obsolete by the time you get it. Jam in too many high-performance components and the price skyrockets to a point that you wonder if a different form factor might have been a better option, not to mention the additional thermal and acoustic concerns. Lenovo’s B Series all in one systems are decidedly mid-range in both name and performance. You can opt for the low end in the C Series, which come with either a Celeron... 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 got their mitts on the new AIO and gave it the teardown treatment, noting that it's still incredibly... 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 full blown desktop PC, and the result is brilliant...
