Toshiba has been making a lot of upcoming device announcements lately. First, the company announced a new 13-inch tablet (read about it under the “Articles” tab on this site), and now Toshiba has announced two new all-in-one PCs. The term “all-in-one” PC isn’t really anything new, but the PCs that Toshiba will be sending to stores in Q3 really do come with everything that you could want with some additional extras available.
If you’re in the market for a new PC and you aren’t sure which one to go for, you might want to wait around for Toshiba’s LX815 and LX835 to hit the market. Granted, these PCs aren’t the best looking in the world, but beauty is often in the eye of the beholder and the PCs that Toshiba has created really do include most everything that you would want.
The LX815 and LX835 From Toshiba
Toshiba’s 23-inch LX835 and the 21.5-inch LX815 both come with HDMI inputs, a 1080p displays, two 3.0 ports, 16GB of RAM, Ivy Bridge, surround sound speakers, magnetic storage (up to 3TB), and a folding stand (just in case all of that wasn’t enough). If you really want to ramp up your new Toshiba all-in-one, the company offers optional IR remotes, a TV-tuner, Blu-ray drive, and edge-to-edge touchscreen (Windows 8-compatible).
Really, Toshiba has packed these upcoming PCs with pretty much everything that you wants and need, so this really is an all-in-one PC. In fact, it’s one of the first all-in-one offerings that truly does come with an impressive list of extras. Of course, for a PC that includes everything that used to be optional on a PC, you can also expect to pay a high price for a new Toshiba system – but Toshiba hasn’t priced these two PCs completely out of the park.
Pricing and Availability
Toshiba has recently announced that the new LX815 will retail for $599.99 while the LX835 will set you back $879.99. Design-wise, it’s hard to love either of these PCs based on design alone (and based on spec photos). The PCs seems to be rather clumsy looking and won’t provide you with the sleekness of a Mac, but few PCs do, really. Then again, Toshiba never really puts out PCs that are design-savvy, and that’s a tactic that seems to work just fine for the company. If you don’t care too much about design (and, really, you shouldn’t because these PCs include plenty of stuff that you should care more about!), either one of Toshiba’s new offerings will certainly please.
Toshiba is set to roll out both of the new all-in-one PCs in Q3, which isn’t really that far away. If you’re in the market for a new PC, this reviewer suggests hanging on for a bit longer until Toshiba sends its new contenders to market. It seems likely that Toshibas new PCs will gain a fair amount of press when they do arrive, and Toshiba always makes solid devices –stay tuned for more from Toshiba throughout the next few weeks.
