• Review: HP TouchSmart 600

    Short version: HP’s TouchSmart 600 isn’t the perfect solution for a touchscreen based home computer, but it comes pretty damn close. The TouchSmart system works well as an internet home appliance, but the thing that makes it special is also where it starts to show some problems. Read More

  • Lenovo brings new touch-enabled all-in-one to market

    How many roads must a man walk down
    Before you call him a man?
    And how many seas must a white dove sail
    Before she sleeps in the sand?
    How many touchscreen all-in-ones will they announce
    before they see there is no demand?
    The answer, my friend, is I don’t know
    I really have no freaking idea Read More

  • Gateway One ZX series gets Windows 7 and touchscreen features

    My gut reaction to seeing these all-in-one computers is that they might make a nice addition to a dorm room or an aging couple’s den. But then Gateway goes and says something like this: “The powerful One ZC6800 Series is a no-compromise, high-performance configuration entirely suitable for serious gaming.” I roll my eyes and then look for the actual specs, to find… Read More

  • MSI's Wind Top AE: sexy, compact, touchscreen and affordable all-in-one?

    I have to say, this is a — excuse me — a damn fine looking all-in-one PC. Why, if it weren’t for the somewhat out-of-place strip of leather, I might just nab one of these Wind Top AE2010 things right now. Actually, I have no use for all-in-ones, but for the budget-and-design-conscious PC user, this thing looks like the holy grail. Even the specs are nice. Read More

  • Review: Averatec D1133 18.4-inch All-In-One PC

    In a move to offer inexpensive all-in-one computers to consumers, many companies are fitting Intel’s Atom processors into small form factor PCs and selling them for around $500 to $600. Averatec has adopted a similar approach with the D1133 but has instead bumped the CPU up to a dual-core 1.5GHz AMD chip along with ATI Radeon 3200 graphics and then priced the system to move at… Read More

  • Eee all-in-one touchscreen PC: a good first step

    Remember that Eee Monitor from a while back? Well! It’s all growns up and it’s sporting a touchscreen and Windows XP. I have to say, though, as nice as it would be to have a little XP touchscreen around the house, the specs are a little lacking: 1GB of RAM, a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 160GB HDD, and 128GBMB (heh) of shared graphics. The 15.6-inch screen would be nice to run your… Read More
