Education Reinvented: All-in-Ones Are a Key Investment in Schools

As schools continue to introduce more and more technology into the classroom, All-in-One PCs are gaining in popularity.

An All-in-One (AiO) PC is a self-contained desktop computer and monitor built into one sleek design. Without all of the cords and cables required by a traditional PC (AiOs have built-in speakers, wireless keyboards and mice), AiOs take up less space and create less clutter without sacrificing any of the performance of a traditional tower computer.

Today's AiOs are also flexible enough to support the wide range of applications, connectivity requirements and operating systems that instructors and students need in the classroom.

Intel processors make it easy for students, faculty and staff to simultaneously open multiple windows, and larger screens can serve as standalone monitors for video and multimedia instruction.

Many AiOs also offer touchscreen functionality, which is similar to the technology most students use outside the classroom.

AiOs not only improve instruction; they are also a smart investment. They use less electricity, and they increase flexibility and productivity in the classroom. Many also offer remote troubleshooting capabilities and software updating. This makes it easier to manage and quickly troubleshoot problems.

Physically, because they are more compact, AiOs are easier to move and set-up because they don't require unplugging multiple cables or repositioning power cords.

Because most AiOs are already packaged together and branded, they may be slightly more expensive upfront than individually purchasing the pieces of hardware and assembling them yourself. But the sleek design of AiO PCs and the fact that they are plug-in-ready out of the box make them a very attractive option.
