Most Powerful AIO, 32GB DDR3 RAM & 6TB Of Storage

Usually when you think of AIO (All-In-One’s) you think of a sleek and slender computer with the bare essentials to get you on your way. You’d probably expect a 128GB SSD, an Intel processor, and 4GB of RAM.

Having said that, I’d like you to meet the most powerful All-In-One of existence, brought to you by NextComputing.

The gaming laptop packs a total of 1.25 terabytes of storage and comes with a Blu-ray drive to enjoy your latest Blu-ray purchases.

14 Nanometer Chips, Seriously?

Intel is pumping some serious iron, err, I mean wafer chips. The company is in the development of the Airmont chips, scheduled for a 2014 release. Airmont will be a 14nm chip, requiring less power while providing intense computing for future applications.

New ThinkCentre EDGE 91z Coming Soon!

Thanks to a recent leak, it looks like there will be a new ThinkCentre All-In-One from Lenovo coming soon. The AIO is dubbed the ThinkCentre EDGE 91z and looks absolutely stunning.
