    Desktop All-in-One

    Is System76 looking at building All-in-One PCs?

    We'd definitely like to! There have been a few prototypes through, but nothing solid yet. We're committed to not releasing a system before it's top notch.

    Re: Desktop All-in-One

    Thank you for the update Isantop.
    I guess in addition to this updated rant, may i add;
    9) Keep the AiO a "freestanding" monitor (iMac & Sony), not a propped up picture frame (dell, lenovo, acer, etc). It's a personal thing, I like my monitor low but not permanently canted toward the ceiling

    10) No touchscreen, no 3D!!!
    11) Be stable with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS c/w standard and custom performance kernel
    Actually Sony has a good series, accept for no 27'' 2560x1600, touchscreen, optical drive, and too many i7 options. People that want a simple but fast AiO aren't interested in shelling out another Grand for a crackin' processor. They have 4-i7 options and 2-i3/i5, they should have weighted towards the i3/i5 chip. But maybe they got the i7 chips on cheap because there is a huge stock pile.

    I have an i3 desktop now with an SSD that crackin and would go for an i5 option. Though it is kind of sh*tty that there is no hyper-threading in the i5 chip.

    Is there a preliminary time line for system76 to release an AiO deskstop? Can you provide any information on what your currently looking at? What type of chassis, price point, options (Barebone). Is there going to be a entire series? Gamer option?

    Signed,

    Ready to dump my big ugly honkin' tower for something lighter and tighter.

    All the information I have is that it's being worked on. I don't know what it will look like, what options it will have, or even if we will be able to put it into production. I can assure you that if we do release it, it will have been very throughly tested and QC'd to make sure it's the best possible Ubuntu AIO experience.

    i guess if you really wanted to sell a few extra units, you could always make the System76 AIO also Mac OSX ready. An inexpensive iMac desktop.

    Besides steve jobs has been plagiarizing open source for years.

    Actually, it violates the Mac OS X EULA to install OS X on any "Non-Apple-Branded hardware". There was a company that used to sell Mac clones, but they got shut down by Apple very quickly.
