All-in-one (AIO) PCs aren’t a new concept. The likes of Lenovo have mastered the segment with a plethora of devices which double as a computer as well as a television. But Android based AIOs are now slowly making their way to the markets as well. We saw one from Acer earlier this year, which was pretty interesting as it would bring the versatility of Android to a screen as big as a regular monitor. And now, renowned display maker AOC has joined the AIO PC bandwagon as well. Its two new offerings, the A2272PW4T and A2472PW4T come with 22 and 24 inch displays respectively packing a native resolution of 1920 x 1080.
Other features on these two devices include 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage with a microSDHC card slot, a quad core NVIDIA Tegra T33 chip with a clockspeed of 1.6 GHz and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which is probably a deal breaker for the Android savvy public. But considering that AOC is targeting this more as a complete multimedia package rather than a standalone Android device, we don’t think the Android version on board will make much of a difference for the fans.
Now for the all important question, the pricing. Well AOC has been pretty careful with this as the smaller 22 inch device costs $299.99 while the 24 inch model costs $100 more at $399.99. These could make decent computers for schools and other educational institutions which require larger displays. AOC is yet to specify launch markets, but we think most of its core markets will be covered.
