Averatec tries hand at budget all-in-one Atom PC

updated 05:25 pm EDT, Wed September 3, 2008

Averatec A1

Averatec today introduced its second all-in-one PC ever this afternoon with the A1. Rather than compete directly against the iMac and similar rivals as it does with its self-descriptive All In One PC, the A1 is an atypical cross between nettops and normal desktops with an 18.4-inch, 1680x945 16:9 ratio display and a DVD burner but a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of memory and a 160GB hard drive.

Wi-Fi is standard along with a 1.3-megapixel camera; Averatec also bucks normal expectations for nettops by shipping with Windows XP as its only choice rather than Linux.

Shipments officially start in early October and, in Europe, will see the system priced low for its display size at 499 Euros ($723). Averatec is believed to be readying the system for the US but hasn't disclosed any changes to the release date or the pricing. [via Laptop]
