"Good all in one. Don't think it deserves Editors Choice"2.5 starson by ndebt1
Pros: Simple Design, large screen, plenty of power, HDMI out was a nice feature as I use it as a kitchen / living room computer, so it's nice to set up the dual display.
Cons: Awkward keyboard, poorly designed touch software, poorly designed toggle buttons.
Summary: The touch software is way overrated in the editor's review. Things like the to-do list don't provide an easy way to synch with other services,additionally slightly annoying is the temperature wont change from celsius on the main paige of the touch software. Maybe it's me, but the only useful feature of the touch software was using it for google reader, and i've all but abaonded these features of the computer. I didn't buy the computer for the touch, so I can get over this.
The editor's review kind of mentions it, but the buttons are worthless and very frustrating. There is no volume control on the keyboard and one is included above the CD drive. These buttons are impossible to see without full lighting. They are also poorly designed: To turn the volume down, you first have to press the voume up button to toggle the volume control pop up, only then can you click the volume down button (which otherwise doubles as the brightness down button).
The supplied keyboard is nice to look at but is awkward to type on for me.
I've had no problems with the hardware and enjoy the speed of the computer. Although I've looked briefly, perhaps some of my tifs could be overcome with settings changes. Overall, I expected more from this computer and having owned the computer for 4 months, I would strongly disagree with the editors choice rating.
