All-in-One [AIO] PCs are a combination of power and style in a single convenient design. If you’ve started finding your laptop screen cramped, and you mostly work in one location, you should consider an AIO desktop. Yes, you have the option to attach an additional display to your notebook, or opt for a tower PC with separate monitor, but AIO desktop systems deserve your attention due to their unique aspects of the integrated monitor and a sleek design with all the features of a tower PC.
If you’re already convinced about going for an AIO system, you must take several things into consideration. In this article, we want to walk you through the ins and outs of choosing the right AIO desktop PC.
Most AIO systems have displays ranging in size from 20 inches on the small end to 32-inch displays on premium systems. We recommend to avoid anything smaller than 23 inches, unless you’re trying to fit the AIO into a cramped cubicle or tiny apartment. High-end 30 to 32 inch systems are nice if you can afford them, but are often cost prohibitive. You may find the sweet spot and good value for your money if you opt for 27 to 28 inches. While most displays come in only two resolutions, full HD (1920 x 1080) or 4K (3840 x 2160), a few all-in-one systems offer displays that exceed 4K resolution. If you want to use the PC to view and edit 4K media, then a monitor with 4K (or better) resolution is a must-have. In general, 4K resolution is what we recommend; as 4K streaming through services like Netflix and YouTube becomes more common, you’ll definitely want a display that can handle the best picture available. However, if you’re looking for an opportunity to get an all-in-one PC for less, opting for a lower resolution display is one of the easiest ways to save money without sacrificing overall performance.
Touch Screen: Yes, or No
If you’ve grown accustomed to the tapping and swiping you do on your phone or tablet, and want that same intuitive interaction with your PC, an all-in-one with touch support is a great way to go. On the other hand, if you know you don’t want a touch screen or are unlikely to use it, then there’s no sense paying for a feature you won’t benefit from.
But there’s more to the equation than touch or no touch. Some touch-enabled PCs may rely on different touch-input technologies. While capacitive touch is most common, and the technology we recommend, you may still find AIO desktops on the market that use other methods of touch sensing, from infrared light or sound to resistive touch sensors. If you’re considering an option other than capacitive touch, take the time to find the system in a local store to try it yourself before purchase.
Finally, some all-in-one systems go beyond fingertip input and offer a stylus or pen. If you want to use your all-in-one for digital sketching and other media creation, then pen support might be a feature to look for.
Next, What’s Inside
An all-in-one PC is, first and foremost, a computer, and the components inside determine what sort of performance the system will give you. There are four main specifications to pay attention to when buying any computer -- all-in-one or otherwise.
While you can find all-in-one systems that use Intel Core i3 or Pentium CPUs, these are much less capable processors, and you’ll feel the limits of that performance much sooner. For most people, we recommend a current Intel Core i5 processor, which will offer plenty of performance for all your everyday uses and will continue to offer good support over the life of the computer. If you want more horsepower, stepping up to a Core i7 will offer plenty of power.
Also called memory, RAM serves as the computer’s short-term storage for applications that are currently in use. A smaller allotment of RAM will limit your ability to multitask, even with a powerful processor. We recommend getting as much RAM as you can, but 8GB of RAM is enough to support most users in all of their computing needs. The good news is that RAM is relatively inexpensive, and it’s often one of the only parts of an all-in-one that can be upgraded by the user.
All the pretty visuals you see in games and videos require graphics processing. Most users can get by with integrated graphics, the graphics processing hardware that comes with your computer’s processor. It’s sufficient for the web browsing, office work and media streaming that make up the bulk of general computer use. However, if you want to play games or do more demanding, graphics-intensive work, you’ll want a system with a discrete graphics card.
Finally, you’ll want something with a good size storage drive for all of your programs, files and family photos. The two big concerns with storage are capacity and speed. A 500GB hard drive will offer plenty of room for documents and photos, but a 1TB drive offers more room to accommodate video files and larger programs. A solid-state drive (SSD) will be faster than any hard drive, and you’ll feel the difference in your day to day use of the machine, but SSDs are more expensive for the same sort of capacity. Many PC manufacturers offer dual-drive configurations that give you the performance benefits of an SSD with the affordable capacity of a spindle-based hard drive. But if not, more storage is better.
Design: Form and Function
Unlike many other categories of PC, all-in-ones are defined by their form. The design of an all-in-one PC places all the components of a regular desktop computer into the same chassis as the monitor, hence the all-in-one name. This design reduces clutter on the desktop, since there’s only one power cable to connect, and no need to snake an extra cable around to connect a monitor. These systems usually come with wireless keyboards and mice, keeping the number of plugged in devices to a minimum. Whether you’re embracing the minimalist look or just trying to keep your desk organized, an all-in-one should help tame the tangle of cables that often accompanies a desktop PC.
That simplicity also means that all-in-one designs are nice for people who may be intimidated by a more complex desktop. Setup is usually as simple as plugging it in and pressing the power button, with very little assembly required, and no confusion about plugging the right cable into the right socket. This no-fuss approach makes the all-in-one a great choice as a family PC that may be used by parents and kids alike.
Since all-in-one PCs are both computer and monitor, there are ergonomic concerns to consider as well. All AIO desktops come with a built-in stand, but some are more adjustable than others. Some AIOs use a single pedestal-style stand. While these stands look very nice, they generally offer some angle adjustment, but no way to adjust the height of the system. Raising up the display requires stacking it on top of something, like a book, and lowering the display requires a lower table or desk entirely.
Other systems offer more flexible options, which have two points of articulation for raising and lowering the display and adjusting the position to your exact needs.
It’s not uncommon to see midrange AIOs skimp on the number and selection of ports, so look for a variety of ports, including USB-C, Thunderbolt, USB 3.0 and HDMI. One or two USB 2.0 ports are often meant for connecting keyboard and mouse, and memory card readers are useful but not ubiquitous.
Port placement is also important, with many all-in-one designs putting all the ports in difficult-to-reach spots, like behind the stand on the back of the display. Ports that are difficult to access are almost as bad as no ports, and you want to be able to reach ports to plug and unplug peripherals without having to reposition your entire system.
Finally, one useful feature found on many all-in-one PCs is an HDMI input, which lets you use the system as a standalone monitor. Whether you use it as a monitor for a gaming console or just as a monitor for a newer PC, this one feature can add years of use to an all-in-one that might be your main PC for only two or three years.
Do check if the AIO PC allows for upgrading of components such as the RAM and storage drive in the future. This might help improve the longevity of your investment. Some more RAM and a larger drive will allow you to use the PC for a lot longer.
