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 would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
