    All-in-One computers. Any suggestions?

    Hi All,
    I have been searching the forums for any positive feedback on All-in-Ones but came up empty.
    Has anyone recently purchased some and been happy with their purchase?

    Thanks

    We use the Dell Optiplex USFF which bolts on to the back of a monitor bracket. We are very happy with these as they are a tidy solution which can easily be screwed to the desk for security and to keep them looking tidy.

    Ergo AS1, had them for a while now and pretty happy with them. My only slight problem with them is that the graphics cannot be upgraded from the onboard graphics provided, intel gma. So any really graphically intensive applications might struggle however we have not had too many problems so far.

    We bought all-ine-one machines from SCL a year or two back - I posted a panaoramic photo of our new media suite at the time, but that seems to have gone missing. The machines are generic all-in-one cases that can take most motherboards and half-height expansion cards, so you can fit (and later upgrade) whatever cheaply-available components you like. They work well in our limited-space media suite. SCL were great when we bought those machines, but have since changed hands so I don't know what their level of expertise is like now.

    We also have some Acer nettop machines in our staff work area, the kind that are small enough to fit behind a monitor. These are very good but won't quite handle video editing or masses of complex Photoshop work - the newer models include dedicated graphics chips, seemingly, and might be more suited to graphics-heavy work.

    We've recently got quotes in for HP Touchsmart 300-1125uk and Pavillion All-in-One PCs. Generally closer to the Atom side of low power PCs, but the CPUs and graphics are far superior. Nice screens, plenty of RAM, just need a Pro licence.

    We've got a bunch of the Omninio III's from Viglen (3 years old this year), and a couple of their Genie Ultra SFF's (the screen attaches to the case via bracket). Both have been excellent. I did a basic review on my blog a while back: Localzuk

    Hi Reg

    HP, Lenovo and Dell have all been very popular with schools we have found. HP offer the HP Elite 8000 USFF which bolts on to the back of the monitor. Dell also offer a similar unit as well as Lenovo. Lenovo also offer a true all-in-one system. Details of which can be found here.

    If you would like a quote on any of the above then please get in touch and I'll help you out with some supported pricing

    Many thanks

    But this is intriguing - it's not quite an all in one, but, well, see for yourself...

    Intriguing isnt the word! I am going to see if I can get a test unit!

    I think they're a generic device of some form, as these guys have been selling them for a few years Cybernet, LCD PC, All-In-One PC, Small PC, Mini PC, All-in-One Computer, Space Saving PC

    We don't have them but I would suggest the Dells, or any that it isn't really an all in one but something that hooks together. Our biggest gripe for the all-in-ones we have is they are tricky to fix as they have been built to stay together & not opened & if the screens go it isn't really cost effective to repair. At least with the Dell & others of that sort you just get a new monitor or if necessary hook it up to a spare you have.
