10 Hot All-In-One Computers on the Market Today

If you’ve ever used an all-in-one computer, you probably know how ridiculously convenient they can be. One box, usually the monitor, acts as your “tower,” display and speakers. That means USB and other ports are conveniently located within arms reach. All-In-One PCs have been around since the days of the Atari 800, yet new technology has created a new class of computers.

These new PCs are hardly any thicker than the average LCD monitor, yet they incorporate nearly every part of your computer in a slim and sleek package. Just add a mouse and keyboard to the equation and you’re ready to roll.
