Honey, I Shrunk the PC

Gone are the days of your computer taking half the space in your room; Welcome the ‘all in one PC’. Although nothing new for anyone who has ever used a Mac, these computers are something to be happy for people who are tired of cleaning up the cluttered ‘desktop’ in their home and office. Almost all PC manufacturers have come up with their range of all in one PC’s and there is one for everyone. The budget models are powered with Intel Atom Dual core processors or AMD Athlon II X2 and runs on either Windows 7 Basic or Linux distros while the top of the line models are powered by Intel Core i5/i7 processors and runs on Window 7.


Besides the wired keyboard and mice on budget models, everything seems to be pretty ‘wireless’. Some top end models features touch enabled screens, inbuilt TV tuners and some even have 3D enabled displays but no such frills for the low end models. The downside of the ‘all in ones’ seems to be the lack of upgrade options like laptops since everything is built into one single frame. These are a perfect choice movie junkies and designers thanks to the large screen size offered by all of them, from the low to high end models. But if you have serious moolah and is open to Mac OSX, then consider buying an iMac instead.

If you are in for an upgrade soon and is short on ‘desk’ space consider buying an 'all in one PC. You can check out some of the models here. If you don't have the money to get one, but love the 'all in one',  you can build yourself one from an old laptop. Here is how:
