Remember when you needed a huge tower and a monitor to have a proper desktop computer? Yeah, me neither. Today, our desktop computers are every bit as light, thin, and portable as our mobile devices. You can think of portable all-in-one PCs as jumbo-sized tablets – tablets with the hearts of full-sized computers, thanks to the latest 4th generation Intel Core processors. That means the family PC is no longer tied down to the computer desk – instead, you get a dynamic device for a dynamic world.
