MSI is bringing a great big bag full of new products to CES this year, and the lineup includes new gaming notebooks including one with a 3K display, quadro workstations, motherboards, tablets, touchscreen notebooks, and an intriguing all-in-one gaming PC called the MSI AG2712A. We’ve actually heard about several of these products already, so hit up the following links for all of the juicy details. The MSI 3K GT60 gaming laptop offers an unbelievable screen res, and we’re deeply intrigued by what the AG2712A all-in-one gaming PC can (or can’t) do. It’s also impressive that MSI has a 17-inch gaming notebook in the GS70 that’s so thin, as usually those mobile gaming... Read more...
One has to wonder how much longer the tried-and-true all-in-one PC will stick around, as the world continues to shift to more mobile form factors and desktops become a thing of the past. That said, there's still a lot of life left in certain markets (storefronts, education, healthcare, etc.), and Acer's new Aspire Z3-600 hopes to hit as many of those sectors as possible. The new machine offers up a 21.5" Full HD display, a built-in carry handle, Harman Kardon speakers, and a 10-point capacitive touchscreen. Crazier still, this AIO actually boasts a built-in battery, which can last for up to 2.5 hours off of the AC outlet. Why? Well, it's the perfect party machine, that's why. It can also lay...

It's hard to believe there's a full fledged system packed inside Apple's slim and sexy iMac chassis. It was roughly a year ago when Apple revamped its all-in-one line, tasking the company's engineers to flatten the design as much as possible without sacrificing performance. What emerged was a sleek display measuring just 5mm at its edge with up to 40 percent less volume than the previous generation. It was such a radical design change that Apple had to abandon traditional welding methods in favor of a process called friction-stir welding, which combines friction-generated heat and pressure to force molecules from two separate aluminum surfaces to mingle with one another. Apple's late 2013 edition... Read more...

This isn't your average all-in-one PC. Launching this week at IFA in Berlin, Germany is the DA241HL: the first Android-based all-in-one PC that's capable of multi-tasking, web browsing, gaming, and video playback. It's a new unit from Acer, and it's powered by NVIDIA's quad-core Tegra 3 processor. It's boasting a 24-inch Full HD (1080p) display, as well as the latest and greatest rendition of Android -- version 4.2 (Jelly Bean). Thanks to MHL connectivity, the DA241HL can easily transmit smartphone content to a larger display for more comfortable viewing. It can also connect to any PC with Windows 8 via an HDMI port or USB cable becoming a 2-point Touch Display -- a nice extra that makes this... Read more...
In a development that’s sure to turn the T-Mobile CEO's face that contested shade of magenta, AT&T announced that it’s Aio Wireless no-contract service will soon be available nationwide. Currently, Aio is available in certain markets in Florida, Texas, and Atlanta, Georgia through brick-and-mortar stores; in Chicago, customers can sign up through the Aio website. By September 29th, everyone in the country will get to take advantage of the service. It’s unclear if and when Aio (which is a subsidiary of AT&T) will build actual stores, but in any case, in a month you’ll be able to sign up with Aio online. Aio Wireless offers three plans, each with unlimited talk,... Read more...
Unless you're a gamer or a content-creation professional that requires a lot of computing horsepower, the latest crop of All In One PCs probably seem very attractive. AIOs tend to be quite the lookers, with sleek lines, large and crisp displays, touch capabilities--and of course, a small footprint. We're starting to see AIOs with better and better specifications too, and although they won't be your choice of machine for pwning n00bs just yet, products like the Dell XPS 27 Touch offer very solid specifications in addition to a premium user experience and lots of ports for connecting peripherals, media cards, and more. The Dell XPS 27 Touch is one of the first generational updates to an all-in-one... Read more...

Intel and Lenovo are co-sponsoring an app contest called the Intel App Innovation Content (AIC) 2013 in an attempt to foster development for Windows 8 tablet and all-in-one platforms. The contest is open to developers in 20 countries, although submissions will only be accepted via certain developer communities, which consist of: Code Project (U.S.), Habrahabr (Russia), ThinkDigit (India), and CSDN (PRC). Intel is looking for tablet apps in the areas of education, finance, healthcare, and retail, and all-in-one apps in the areas of entertainment and education. 200 finalists will get a Lenovo AIO development system (an Ideacentre Horizon), and 300 finalists will receive a Lenovo tablet (Thinkpad...

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 17.3-inch NE72206u packing a quad-core AMD A6-5000 APU, 8GB of memory, and a 5400 RPM HDD is $499.99....

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 (1.5GHz, dual-core, 2MB cache) and 2GB of DDR3 memory (expandable to 16GB), while the Veriton Z2640G-UP2117X... Read more...
The sting of HP’s Palm acquisition and subsequent inglorious failure to do anything with it may be subsiding enough so that the company can revisit the idea of entering the smartphone market. Yam Su Yin, HP’s Senior Director Consumer PC and Media Tablets Asia Pacific (holy job title, Batman) told Indian Express that HP would indeed be getting back into the smartphone hardware game. When asked if HP was working on a smartphone, she answered, “The answer is yes but I cannot give a timetable. It would be silly if we say no. HP has to be in the game.” That’s about as unequivocal an answer as you can get. Ill-fated Palm Pre 2 Yin also stated that HP was focusing hard... Read more...
There are plenty of AiOs around, and they pretty much all run Windows 8. Now, however, HP has unveiled a 21.5-inch model called the HP Slate 21 that runs Android Jelly Bean. There aren’t too many details out yet regarding the actual hardware inside the Slate 21, but we do know that its touch display is a full HD IPS affair and that it will run on a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor with Android 4.2 and 8GB of onboard storage, and it will have DTS sound, HP TrueVision HD webcam, WiFi Direct, and Bluetooth 3.0. There’s also plenty of support for external storage with three USB 3.0 ports. If it sounds as though the Slate 21 is on the weak end of the desktop spectrum, that’s because... Read more...
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 wholly-owned subsidiary of AT&T and offers three plans ranging from $35 to $70 per month, which... 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 bed for some late night surfing before drifting off to sleep. You can dock the display on your desk... 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 the market, forcing OEM PC makers to respond. There are some who believe tablets are little more than...

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 the ASUS Power Pack, which is great feature on its own, but it can also double as a portable battery... 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 of that data you can consume at high speed. Generally, the plans look like they’ll vary from... 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; a pair of 3W speakers; I/O connectivity that consists of a mic-in port, earphone-out port, RJ45, and...

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 Turbo. For graphics, we have NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 670MX 3GB. While that card is nowhere near as fast... 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 hard drive. Dell XPS 18 There’s also an 8-in-1 card reader, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, a USB... 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, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0, a quartet of USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, headphone and mic... Read more...
