Toshiba has announced its first all-in-one desktop PC product, the All-in-one DX1210 PC. It is available now on the Australian market from selected retailers, including Harvey Norman, and starts from $1899.

The Toshiba's All-In-One DX1210 PC has a 21.5in Full HD touchscreen and it's available in either Intel Core i5 or Core i7 second generation (Sandy Bridge) processor configurations. The PC is designed for home users and Toshiba touts is as a hub for all computing and multimedia needs.

Anthony Geronimo, Toshiba's B2C product marketing manager said in a media release that "it's not uncommon for households to have several technology devices in different rooms, so the DX1210 is a great solution to managing multiple devices through a single hub. Families can use the All-in-one as a base for connecting and managing other notebooks, tablets or smartphones".

The Toshiba DX1210 PC includes HDMI-in, six USB ports (including two USB 3.0 ports), Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth, 802.11n (2.4GHz) Wi-Fi and an SD card slot. It also comes with a Blu-ray drive, a digital TV tuner and a 1TB, 7200rpm hard drive. The USB ports support Toshiba's Sleep-and-charge technology, which allows USB-based devices (including the iPhone) to be charged even when the PC is not powered on. Another nifty feature of the PC includes Sleep & Music, which allows music to keep playing even when the PC is in sleep mode.

Along with an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 CPU, the configuration includes integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics, which gives the all-in-one PC respectable performance when it comes to playing games such as World of Warcraft or Startcraft2. However, the DX1210 isn't a gaming machine; it's designed as a PC that can be used to perform everyday computing tasks, social networking and communications (a webcam is installed), and it can even be used as a media centre and PVR (it comes with a remote control).

The Toshiba DX1210 is an alternative to HP's Touchsmart PC, which hasn't had much competition in the consumer space. The all-in-one design means that the DX1210 is neat and easy to set up and use and the touchscreen allows it to be used as a kiosk of sorts for playing media files. Furthermore, Toshiba supplies an application so that users can leave notes on a 'virtual corkboard'.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
