With the ever changing technology and ultrabooks stealing the spotlight with their ever-improving performance and portability, AIOs have been quietly getting sleeker and more powerful. Here’s one interesting AiO that you can consider for your living room: the Maingear ALPHA 24 Super Stock. The machine offers desktop-level hardware in an AIO platform courtesy of Intel’s Thin-Mini ITX standard that’s sure to appeal to gamers. It is a AIO with touch screen offering a 95 W Intel Core i7 3770K as the heart of the machine, with a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 to provide gaming prowess that has never before been found in an all-in-one custom computer.
The impressive part is each of these components are upgradeable and user serviceable: no need to worry about obsolescence or falling behind the technology race.
Also MAINGEAR ALPHA 24 takes advantage of the Intel 3rd generation core processor and the desktop version of NVIDIA Optimus: Synergy. Synergy technology works in tandem with Intel’s HD graphics, allowing for conservative power consumption while watching videos or internet browsing but delivering power on demand with any gaming need. An optional CableCARD tuner also turns the ALPHA 24 into a touch-enabled Media Center; a digital cable-enabled HTPC. The ALPHA 24 also has a HDMI in, allowing a cable box, XBOX 360, PS3, or other device to take advantage of its full HD display.
Which comes as its simple and clean design, this 1920 x 1080 glossy touchscreen all-in-one fits everyone’s style and home. Customers can also order the MAINGEAR ALPHA 24 with a custom paint finish that lets the user tailor the all-in-one PC to their aesthetic design.
Other features include 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, 3 USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port, 4-in-1 card reader, optical drive, 16GB DDR3-1333 memory, 3TB hard drive, 256GB SSD, and Windows 7.
Company’s target is gamers who want the sleek look of an AIO as well as customers who want an HTPC.
Maingear is accepting pre-orders now and expects the first batch to ship out on October 10 and starts at $ 1349.
