  • Hands-on with Lenovo's cavalcade of laptops and PCs

    Lenovo’s new line-up is heavy on the all-in-ones but has a few surprises up its sleeve. I got a chance to look at most of the new line last week and came away extremely enthused by the twee Q150. From the press release: If your idea of fun is tricking out your living room entertainment center, then the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q150 is the perfect solution. At just 0.82 inches wide and 6.7… Read More

  • HP launches updated business, new consumer desktop systems

    HP announced their latest desktop systems today, including a new consumer level all-in-one system, and a new business desktop. They also released the latest specs on their TouchSmart line, which will now be available with the Intel Core i3 and i5 CPUs. All of HP’s new systems are made without BFR/PVC products in the plastic, and the All-in-One is the first desktop to be made this way. Read More

  • TouchSmart Web packs a touch interface PC into your printer

    Convergence. That’s the word that comes to mind when I watch the fancy demonstration of the HP Photosmart Premium TouchSmart web printer. We’ve all seen the all-in-one PC design, a la the iMac, but how often do we see a printer and a computer in one package? HP is bundling a teeny little touch-interface computer with their latest set of printers, allowing you to access stuff from… Read More

  • Averatec's new all-in-one is the choice for the discerning evil genius

    Take a look at that computer. I understand it’s not going to look quite that jet-black in real life, but come on. If you were an evil genius and you were outfitting headquarters, you can streamline both your hideout and your purchasing process by getting a bunch of these. Black and imposing, yet fast enough to crunch those evil numbers your henchmen are always dealing with. Read More

  • Quick Look: 18.4-inch Averatec D1100 All-In-One PC

    The 18.4-inch D1100 from Averatec showed up at my house recently and I thought, hey, lazy Saturday — let’s set it up. I had forgotten the specs, the price, and all the relevant details but when I had gotten everything together (a process which took less than ten minutes) I can tell you that I’m impressed by how nice the computer looks. Especially since — surprise! Read More

  • Sony launches the new all-in-one JS1 PC

    Sony is giving the all-in-one PC concept the ‘ol college try with yet another series: the JS1. The 20.1-inch widescreen LCD should show off Vista’s eye candy or a Blu-ray disc nicely, while a Core 2 Duo, 3GB of memory and a 500GB hard drive provides the backbone for the PC. Sony really wants this all-in-one to provide entertainment while chilling on your Pottery Barn-style digs… Read More

  • Sony BRAVIA Theater: BDV-IT1000 Blu-ray all-in-one

    It’s just a matter of time before Blu-ray all-in-one systems hit the street. Sony’s BDV-IT1000 seems like a killer system even though AV guys will scoff due to the all-in-one moniker. I believe the two HDMI inputs, wireless rear channels, 1080p24 along with Dolby Digital Plus, TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio support rounds out this system nicely. We all know… Read More

  • Averatec back from the dead with new all-in-one PC

    Remember Averatec? T’was once Sotec and appears to now be TriGem Computer peddling PCs and notebooks under the Averatec brand name? Whatever the case may be, there’s a new all-in-one on the market for $1,199 for those of you still interested in skinny-but-sorta-powerful computers. The Averatec All-in-One PC (as it’s called) consists of a 22-inch screen at 1680×1050… Read More

  • All-in-one Eee PC or just a monitor?

    Our buds over at Laptop have some interesting photos of an Eee monitor that might be a 19- or 20-incher with a built-in Webcam. A total of four USB ports, two Ethernet ports, and three audio ports are visible on the monitor/all-in-one. Denon logos suggest the unit has built-in speakers and an amplifier. The Eee monitor is rumored to be priced at $500 with a built-in TV tuner and more than… Read More
