Averatec’s AIO Is Just A Notebook With A Large Monitor

averatec-d1133

By Chris Scott Barr

Ever since Apple popularized the all-in-one computer other companies have attempted to recreate its success. So far none have managed to create such a stir, though a few models have done well. Every now and then I see one that just looks like the company half-assed it. In that spirit, I give you the Averatec D1133.


Am I the only one that thinks they simply took a laptop, removed the screen and set a slightly larger one on top? Heck, it even looks like a rather bulky laptop base. Now you’ve got a computer that looks like a laptop, feels like a laptop, but isn’t portable like a laptop. Great. Well if you don’t mind the odd appearance, here are the specs for the D1133:

  • AMD Athlon X2 1.5Ghz
  • 18.4″ display (1680×945, 16:9) with 1.3 Megapixel webcam
  • 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, DVD drive
  • USB 2 (4), eSATA (1), Audio in/out, 10/100 Ethernet, DVI, 4:1 flash reader, WIFI-G
  • ATI Radeon HD 3200 GPU
  • Vista Home Basic

No word yet on pricing or availability.

    Where exactly is the keyboard?

    Actually I don't think it's that bad. Imac aren't the greatest thing in the world. slapping a hot computer and a hot monitor next to one another is just retarded. Proven by the high failure rate of early lcd iMac. As regard to where is the keyboard. well it's a pc so any generic keyboard would probably fit in one of those USB slot. Not many of us like the OEM keyboard that comes with our PC. Or maybe they'll have bluetooth and you can use a bluetooth keyboard
