All in one computers

Recommended Posts

I have been looking around for a pre built PC based on what is being mentioned in the PCTA mags.

 

But on Facebook they keep promoting this new Asus All in One computer ,but cannot seem to find any hardcore facts on specs.

 

Can you use these for playing games on or are they only built for playing DVD's on and for streaming network movies.

 

They look nice and compact with USB3 ports and the latest of Screens for viewing.

Which one in particular? What games?

 

https://www.asus.com/us/AllinOne_PCs/ has a few

 

And https://www.asus.com/us/AllinOne_PCs/ET2702IGTH/ tells you exactly what CPU and GPU is used.

I play MMO's like Guild Wars 2 ,GW1 ,WoW and maybe some World of Tanks.

 

No mention of whether its a SSD build or size of storage ,just Windows 8 based with cloud storage.

 

Does it have DVD or a Bluray player?

It says it has an integrated bluray player.

That should be plenty of specs. I don't know anything about the GPU chosen, but presumably it may struggle to run at high framerates if you're going to play in native 1440p with details maxed.

I thought so too about frame rates. I think i saw a site about using Radeon Laptop chips ,not quite sure if this is true.

 

Found some review sites but not with game playing and how they perform.

 

I might shoot an email to Asus and ask some questions.

looks like it has a hd 8890m which is a bit slower than r7 260

as far as a gaming build goes it looks like horrible value

I must agree on that too ,for $2600 in most retail stores even with cash discount its not worth it.

 

What caught my eye was the fact it was all built in as one PC.

 

Would really love to see some games running on these PC's to see if they can really perform.

Hmm, I have a cheap one but it is the secondary box so never tried it for gaming, it's used for monitoring the temperatures on my main box mostly.

It's a Lenovo that cost me about $1000 last year. it's been great for the uses I've had it for but the touch interface doesn't match up with the screen. Fine at the top, about 10mm out at the bottom.

Look at the advertising. These aren't designed as gaming beasts. They aren't being advertised as such.

 

They're a compact media machine that can handle some gaming with some settings turned down for anything new. That being said, I'm pretty sure the games you want to play aren't particularly demanding.

 

Which makes the real question: why would you want to spend so much money on a compact large touchscreen PC?
