HP Omni Pro 110 PC: The All-in-One Business PC

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 02:30 PM

http://www.ubergizmo.com/2011/03/hp...mni-pro-110-pc/

"HP has just announced a new all-in-one, space saving, clutter-free PC designed for small businesses. Called the HP Omni Pro 110 PC, this computer places all the internals of the computer into a 20″ widescreen."

This looks like HP's answer to the likes of Lenovo's M90z; an all-in-one computer design tuned for office use. I used to be fairly negative on the all-in-one concept, but since testing the M90z my stance has changed: unless you specifically have plans to upgrade your computer over time, there's literally almost no reason to go with a desktop computer. They're bigger, usually noisier, and don't offer many advantages beyond being able to upgrade them. That said, in my office I have three desktop PCs that are in near-constant use, and I wouldn't replace any of them with all-in-one designs. I deeply value the ability to upgrade and modify my desktop computers - and also the ability to use whatever monitor(s) I wish.

The Dell Studio XPS 7100 Unboxing & First Impressions

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 07:00 AM

Above is part one of an unboxing and first impressions video of the Dell Studio XPS 7100, a desktop PC from Dell. This particular model I ordered runs Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and is powered by an AMD Phenom II X6 1055T. This is AMD's six-core CPU, running at 2.8 Ghz with a turbo boost up to 3.3 Ghz. This particular configuration of the XPS 7100 also includes an ATI Radeon HD 5450 with 1 GB of RAM. It has a 750 GB 7200 RPM hard drive, a Blu-ray reader/CD/DVD burner, 6 GB of DDR3 RAM, memory card slots, and gigabit Ethernet. Part two after the break. Read more...

Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z All-in-One Desktop Computer Unboxing and First Impressions

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 07:00 AM

Above is part one of an unboxing and first impressions video of the Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z, an all-in-one desktop computer designed for the SOHO market (small office/home office). This is a corporate-looking machine, so it doesn't win any awards in the looks department, but it gets the job done in a compact, power-efficient manner. Read more...

Lenovo Gets Creative Promoting the ThinkCentre A70z

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 03:00 PM

I haven't had much time to spend with the Lenovo A70z I was sent for review yet, but in discussions with Lenovo learning more about this product, they let us know about this video they had made - it put a smile on my face! I think it's great when companies get creative about promoting their products, and it certainly drives home the "no clutter" part of what this product offers.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Look What Showed Up Today...

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 06:00 PM

What's in the box? A Lenovo ThinkCentre A70z - it's an all-in-one PC focused on the SOHO/small business market. While it lacks the slick design of the IdeaCentre A-series all-in-one, it packs a lot of features in a slim chassis. I'll be reviewing it in the upcoming weeks - it's the first all-in-one system I've looked at, since I tend to prefer the flexibility of a stand-alone tower and monitor. It's easier to get best-of-breed components that way, but there's no denying the space and cost-saving factors that are present in a design like this. Watch for more on this product after I open that box.


Featured Product

The Canon PowerShot S100 - The incredibly fun and small camera that offers you 12.1 megapixels with a bright f/2.0 lens and full 1080p video recording . MORE INFO
