    All-in-One Computers Recommendations

    I've been looking into getting an AIO (All In One) computer to replace my aging laptop which never moves from the desk anyway. but we don't have lads of space so I ruled out a proper desktop.

    I've spent a great deal of time on the net today but being an idiot a lot of the numbers being thrown at me don't mean much.

    I'm leaning towards a Lenovo or an Asus, as I've got an Asus phone and had a Lenovo laptop before. Other than that I'm not sure if they're good or not?

    I only use it for internet browsing, playing movies and playing some old games.

    The problem that I'm seeing is that not many of them come with Windows, so I'd have to get someone to install it and it'd most probably be dodgy for the amount I want to pay.

    Do you own one? Can you recommended one for under 20k?


    invadeIT - Computer Online Thailand, Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more! was recommended to me so I've been using them and Lazada as a price/availability guide.
    I'd like to see what morning looks like
    Don't wanna drink pint after pint
    I wanna wake up without feeling sick
    But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic

    I'm typing this on a 20" HP AIO Windows 7 from Pantip. It works is a few years old and at the low end of the price range.
    It could do with more memory but I have to find the energy to go to Fortune and buy another module
    Mine doesn't have a connection for an external monitor which would useful as the main TV is just below the floor. So I'm still using sneaker net to watch movies.
    A friend just bought an Asus AIO at Pantip he paid I think around 13,000 with Window installed.
    Better to think inside the pub, than outside the box?
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all

    I've got the 27" Lenovo Ideacentre.

    It's the testicular sac of the canine.

    Upgraded to Windows 10 and even Insider Preview and all works fine (I am on the latest Fast Ring build).

    I'd forget the all-in-one.

    Aren't they generally lower spec for the price, and more hassle to upgrade different parts later on?

    I've bought a few PC's off this guy.

    3. แรม : 8 GB Kingston Hyper-X DDR3 1600
    4. การ์ดจอแยก : 2 Gb (GDDR5) 128bit AMD HD7730 'MSI'
    5. ฮาร์ดดิส : 1TB Seagate (64MB)
    6. พาวเวอร์ซัพพลาย : 580w
    7. เคส : Tsunami Hero

    Acer revo

    The acer revo looks good. It's not much bigger than a coffee mug, ideal for saving space.

    I agree with Lui to a point.

    Fuck the all in one, buy a wireless mouse, keyboard, some speakers, a lazy boy with refigeration and plug a desktop or imac straight into your TV.

    Then show your Missus how to download the Thai TV app on her phone
    .

    Im good like that

    Pretty much how the Lu-cave is set up.

    But add 5.1 surround sound system.

    PC, into yer 50 inch FHD TV and 5.1 SS System, wireless mouse and keyboard, latch on the door in case the daughter walks in.

    Fok the All-in-One gayness.

    No.. and ... if you buy a decent enough spec you don't need to upgrade it.

    When it gets to five years I'll shift it on anyway. had it a couple of years already.

    I have used IT invade by post and there was excellent service contact via email phone and delivered on time as spec.If you are in BKK probably worth check Fortune Tower, I find it less intense than Panthip and similar prices for the few items I buy , I'm no expert at all .I am sure others will give you helpful feedback once youve decided

    Purpose
    Features
    Budget
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    ^ Plus runs the risk of accidently opening up skype at an inappropriate time if any splatter hits the monitor.
