Toshiba has announced its first All-in-One computer to be launched in Europe, the Qosmio DX730, a product which the Japanese company says has been inspired by its line of REGZA HD televisions.
Like many of its competitors, it comes with a big full HD touchscreen display, in this case a 23-inch 1920x1080 pixel panel which doubles as a television thanks to a built-in DVB-T Freeview tuner.
It also comes with a Blu-ray drive, Onkyo speakers with subwoofer, a wireless keyboard and mouse plus Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0. Toshiba also astutely included two USB 3.0 ports, a SDHC card slot, GbE, a remote control plus four USB ports and HDMI-in (but not out).
As for the computer itself, Toshiba chose to rely on Intel with either the Pentium or the Core i3/i5 range (but no i7), up to 6GB DDR3 memory, up to 1TB hard disk drive, a webcam and Windows 7 Home Premium.
The Qosmio DX730 will be released in Q4 but Toshiba has yet to say how much it will cost. It will face some tough competitors like the Acer Aspire Z5610 which comes roughly the same configuration (albeit with an older CPU) but costs only £700.
