The products should start selling within a week or two
Elitegroup Computer Systems is not wasting any time. Since the Consumer Electronics Show is just five days away, it has already prepared the products it will exhibit there.For those not yet in the know, the 2013 edition of the Consumer Electronics Show will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, between January 8 and 11.
ECS will, naturally, attend the show. The first quarter of every year is a slow season for sales, but it is also a good time to introduce products that will become available over the course of the first half of said year.
As such, it is not so strange to learn that there will be a collection of all-in-one computers there for people to gaze upon, perhaps even test out.
In its newest press release, ECS spoke, specifically, of two all-in-one computers: the G24 and G18.
Both of them use very thin mini-iTX motherboards but have TV tuners and full HDMI capability, meaning that they can act as smart HDTVs as well.
Given the various product releases of the past months, there may be both Intel and AMD-based platforms to choose from.
Nevertheless, Intel-based motherboard+CPU kits are more likely to be available than the rest.
Regardless of the internal hardware, both computers have 10-finger multitouch support, needed to smoothly operate the user interface of Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system.
As for the screen sizes, the G24 measures 23.6 inches, while the G18 is an 18.5-inch AiO.
Elitegroup Computer Systems did not release any information regarding the price of the newcomers, although it is obvious enough that different hardware choices will affect it.
On that note, ECS also failed to provide an ETA (estimated time of arrival). This last detail should be provided within the next week though, in a new press release, through CES 2013 representatives, or both.
