Viewsonic 22in Android all-in-one PC on sale for £360

The Smart Display VSD220 by Viewsonic is one of the few Android all-in-one computers on the UK market. It costs £360 at Dabs, a price similar to the Lenovo C325 AIO which features an AMD C-50 APU, 8GB of RAM, a 1TB hard disk drive and a raft of additional features.

The VSD220 is essentially a larger version of a tablet, which is tethered and devoid of any 3G connectivity. It comes with a dual-core system-on-chip, the TI OMAP4430, clocked at 1GHz, with 1GB of RAM and 8GB onboard storage.

There’s also a 1.3-megapixel camera, LAN port, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a card reader, two speakers, SRS premium sound, three USB ports, a HDMI one, a VESA mount, Android 4.0 ICS and a three year warranty.

The main point of focus though is the 21.5in 1,920 x 1,080 two-point touchscreen display with a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and an image brightness of 250cd/m2. It also houses the AIO’s hardware.

Note that the VSD220 doesn’t come with a keyboard or a mouse.

Some might argue that you could achieve the same level of control on an Android tablet, with a HDMI out controlling a traditional full HD display. There are existing Android HDMI dongles that can plug into touchscreen displays, essentially turning into the VSD220, but at a cheaper entry point.
