For starters, it is one of the few all-in-one PC’s that have opted to use a 1.5GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 CPU rather than the Intel Atom processor. Another improvement is the computer’s super-sized memory and storage capacity. The MS214 comes equipped with 2 gigabytes of DDR2, twice the average amount. The PC’s storage capacity is just as high, with 300 GB of storage.
The HP MS214 also includes integrated wireless-n and gigabit LAN connectivity. Both of these greatly facilitate the transferring of files. Lastly, the PC is complete with the addition of a DVD burner.
The only pitfalls of this all-in-one PC are that it doesn’t offer any kind of touch screen capabilities and has a meager six USB ports, two of which will likely be hogged by a keyboard and mouse. Overall, HP’s all-in-one PC offers a lot of bang for $600 bucks.

Nearly everything but the kitchen sink has been trying to steal the market back from netbooks, and Acer’s no deviant. Nettops and all-in-one PCs seem to be gaining ground on netbooks recently, and Acer is to debut its Veriton all-in-one PC (model number A280G-EA271CP).
This all-in-one will have an 18.5″ LCD display with 1366×768 resolution (1000:1 contrast ratio and 16:9 aspect ratio) and be powered by an Intel Atom ULV processor (that doesn’t need a fan). The OS on this machine will be Windows XP.
The dimensions of the Acer Veriton all-in-one PC are 19″ x 15″ x 2.14, making this device a space saver. Pricing starts at $499 for the base model.
