All-in-One PC Suited for Kitchens, Velocity Micro's Edge
Its hardware is customizable and the price is actually reasonable
All-in-one personal computers usually end up in offices, or the rooms of people who want as much free space as possible, but Velocity Micro thought of kitchens when it developed the Edge AIO.In its press release, at one point, the company says that the Edge AIO is built in such a way that it matches the decor of any room.
Still, Velocity Micro makes a point of mentioning kitchens in particular, even though the Edge doesn't actually have any sort of special design elements.
And by that we mean that the construction is not in any way rugged or shielded against steam, spills or other kitchen hazards.
Then again, when the starting price is of $799 / 799 Euro, Velocity Micro couldn't afford to add any expensive elements.
Nevertheless, the company did all it could in regard to aesthetics, succeeding in giving the system a sleek, silver-white finish.
"The All-in-One PC market is full of uninspired, underpowered hardware that not only offers a sub-par user experience, but doesn't even look good doing it," said Randy Copeland, president and CEO of Velocity Micro.
"We designed the Edge AIO to be the solution to those low powered, low expectation, chunky looking All-in-Ones."
The screen of the Velocity Micro Edge all-in-one system measures 23.6 inches in diagonal and has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
The hardware inside revolves around an Intel Core CPU (i3/i5/i7) and consists of a solid-state drive, a customizable amount of RAM, a 720p High-Definition webcam, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n) and a DVD writer. An SD card slot is available as well.
