The Slow, Slow Evolution of All-In-Ones With the C200
Posted by Hooch Tan in "Digital Home News" @ 12:00 PM
"The C200 will be available in a variety of configurations, with up to an Intel Atom Dual Core D510 processor and Nvidia Ion 2 graphics…meaning the system may not be able to keep up with gaming rigs, but it should offer considerably better computing and media performance than a typical Atom-based desktop system."
Well, it looks pretty, but aside from the improved graphics capability, there is nothing that really stands out about the C200 to me, compared to many other all-in-ones. Much like a large portion of the computing industry today, there is little, from a specification view, that differentiates one computer from another. Each category seems to have specific tiers. There are the basic all in ones, that use an Atom CPU or something similarly performing, or something like the high end HP Touchsmart PCs. Even the IdeaPad S10-3s that was also announced shows nothing interesting. Perhaps that is why all the interest is in slates now. Netbooks and all-in-ones have already turned into commodity devices.
