Intel unveils 27-inch all-in-on desktop tablet

Intel unveils 27-inch all-in-on desktop
It was called a developers’ conference by
Intel and it was hosted in San Francisco
little did the computer world know that it
was about to be bombarded with a new
invention by the chip-making company as
it was used as a medium to unveil a
desktop computer prototype that has a
display that can double as a 27-inch tablet
with a four-hour battery life.
Slate producers like Samsung, with its Galaxy
Note II, and Apple, with its expected iPad Mini,
are down-sizing the tablet’s classic 10-inch form
factor. But Intel must think that there’s room to
push the form at the other end of things.
Called the Adaptive All-In-One, the 2.5-inch thick
unit has 1080p HD resolution and has the guts of
a personal computer, including optical drive,
input/output ports and high-performance
graphics processor. On the desktop, it plugs into
a dock that charges its battery and connects it
to peripherals such as a keyboard and mouse.
Its touchscreen can be used both on and off the
The display panel weighs 14 pounds. That may
have been portable in the days of the Osborne I,
but it’s not very portable by today’s standards.
Intel recognizes that deficiency and is working
with screen and battery manufacturers to slim
down the units.
All-In-One computers aren’t anything new, and
in recent times they’ve been gaining popularity.
Apple has been flogging the form for years with
its iMac line and just this week HP introduced a
slick new addition to the category, the
Some tablet makers have also dipped their toes
in the detachable screen waters. For example,
Asus’ Transformer tablet line has a dock that
transforms the slates into a mini-laptop.
With ideas like the Adaptive All-In-One, Intel
hopes to pump some excitement into a PC
market that seems to get more moribund with
each passing quarter. For the quarter ending in
June, for instance, Gartner reported that PC
shipments declined 5.7 per cent. IDC’s
estimates for the period were even worse: a
10.6 per cent drop.
The traditional desktop is a box that’s beige,
black, or brown and most likely it’s under the
desk but now, the adaptive all-in-one in terms of
design will surely change the way that people
interact with their desktop PCs.
