The new slimline PC

Consumers who fancy trading in their old tower PC for something a little more space-saving might be interested in computer designer Pelham Sloane's PS1500 PC, launched today.

The computer's innards have been integrated into a 7in thick flat-screen monitor, eliminating the need for a bulky tower while maintaining fairly impressive performance speeds.

The 15in screen houses a choice of Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz, Intel Celeron 1.8GHz or Via 933 C3 processors, up to 1GB RAM and a maximum 120GB of hard disk space. There is a wide range of optional extras to choose from including a touch-screen, infrared capabilities and an onboard TV card.

"Previous attempts to create all-in-one machines sacrificed processing speeds or storage capacity — or were too bulky to confer a space advantage. PS targets a sweet spot in the market by providing space savings, ergonomics and style associated with LCD screens, and full desktop processing power without a tower," enthused Bart Stanco, senior vice president of research firm Gartner.

Prices will start from £849.99. Australian availability is not expected.

The company is also developing 17in and 20in screen models for introduction later this year.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
