Application and Futuremark Performance

While HP and Dell's all-in-ones feature quad-core desktop processors, Toshiba's entry-level DX735 runs a much more miserly mobile dual-core. As a result, it's reasonable to expect that the DX735 is going to finish last in each of our basic benchmarks, especially considering Toshiba opted to stick with Intel's integrated graphics rather than bumping up to a discrete graphics part. This isn't the page where Toshiba's design choices are going to pay off, so try to keep that in mind when you read these results.

What's interesting when looking at these results isn't how the Dell Inspiron One 2320 beat the Toshiba DX735, but how narrowly it did in certain circumstances. Dell's all-in-one enjoys two extra cores, but the only crowd pleaser here is really HP's all-in-one, and it suffers in PCMark due to its substantially slower hard drive. All things considered, the DX735 acquits itself reasonably well. If you're not doing the heavy lifting represented by Cinebench and x264 encoding, even a mobile dual-core Sandy Bridge processor is plenty fast for most tasks.

Of course in 3DMark the DX735 trails its competitors, but again it's worth mentioning that their graphics solutions are still really only adequate for gaming at 1366x768; Toshiba has elected not to even try and compete here. This is not a gaming machine, plain and simple.

    Someone I know was looking at iMacs, because they're tasty looking, and for many reasons I agree.

    Why won't a PC manufacturer make a good all-in-one? A decent graphics card and an IPS panel is all you need to match an iMac, but it would still not cost as much as an iMac..

    With TN screens and integrated graphics (the guy would want to run AutoCAD and Inventor on it) it is absolutely useless.

    Anyone who wants to run AutoCAD on an all-in-one is barking up the wrong tree.

    I agree with the author here, very much not the target market for these machines. Unless he has a really constrained space, he would be better off getting a nice HP Elitebook with freestanding monitor for the same price, and then getting the added benefit of portability when he needed it. Or, he could get the same PC + freestanding IPS monitor and save a considerable amount of money.

    I agree. Guess it would be nice to be able to suggest an all in one that is at least as capable and has a nice screen like an iMac.

    Once people get it in their heads they want something that pretty, it becomes difficult to sway them.

    If we look at the demographic that the AIO seems to be targeting, it's the casual-to-medium duty market.
    While not always the case, the last several generations of iMAc have certainly been more than adequate to that task.

    Aesthetics is certainly a valid reason to like the Apple in this market, especially since the screen on an iMac *is* far better.
    In addition, if someone has the know-how, or knows someone who has the know-how, the boot camp option takes care of any platform-specific needs.

    Ironically, I think that Apple shot themselves in the foot somewhat by going to a 21.5" screen for the smaller iMac.
    When they decided to go from a 24" screen to a 27" model for the larger iMac, they should have moved to 23" for the smaller model.

    That is one factor that may attract shoppers away from the iMac, even if other aspects of the PC AIO's don't match Apples's quality.

    I thought it was a Toshiba TV.

    That gets a GT 555M, various processors, nvdia 3d vision. Would be more the sort thing I would be after as a replacement for my acer 8920G laptop for the family to use - for surfing, ms office work, kids gaming, watching stuff, viewing 3d photos (yes I own a 3d camera).

    I'll tell Dustin to try asking for a review unit, but considering Lenovo hasn't been willing to ship us any laptops for about two years, I doubt it will happen.

    Thankfully you can always plug in external speakers

    Needs a TV Tuner and VESA mounting holes so I can mount it on a wall in my kitchen. Would love to have a networked TV with a full fledged Windows PC capable of being the perfect HTPC in a highly integrated package. Would be nice to be able to plug in a portable Bluray drive or mount Bluray ISO rips into it for high definition movies in the kitchen too.
