Toshiba Unveils the DX1215 All-In-One

Toshiba DX1215Reports are in on the new all-in-one DX1215 touchscreen from Toshiba and the reports are good. According to multiple reviews, Toshiba's DX1215 all-in-one has one of the best touchscreens on the market and the fancy wireless peripherals and amazing speakers give you a fairly decent all-in-one multimedia device. The only thing lacking is the mobile processor.

For $934 you can get the DX1215 with a second-generation Intel Core i5-2410M processor which, surprisingly enough, is a laptop processor as opposed to a desktop processor, as well as built-in HD graphics. In addition to that you also get 4GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive and built-in WiFi and Bluetooth. The DX1215 also runs a 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium as an operating system.

The 21.5" touchscreen is extremely pleasing aesthetically, being very bright with excellent color representation and excellent contrast. The touchscreen is also one of the most responsive and most accurate touchscreens on the market. The glossy screen surrounded by a thin, shiny black bezel, has a native 1,920 x 1,080 resolution, making all of your HD pictures and videos really pop. Picture quality is clear and crisp though the viewing angels could be better as the screen gets significantly darker the more you move to either side.

Multitouch works impeccably and there is almost no lag whatsoever, which definitely makes the experience so much more enjoyable. Unfortunately, Toshiba has yet to fully optimize the DX1215's version of Windows 7 for touchscreens, so you may run into some trouble using some regular apps, like Internet Explorer, right out of the box. Thankfully this is something that can be easily calibrated, even though it is an odd problem to have considering how much time Toshiba spent on the actual screen.

As far as performance, the DX1215 could be better, especially considering its position as a budget all-in-one. The device only gets a WorldBench 6 benchmark score of 115, though that isn't too surprising considering the mobile processor. Graphics performance isn't anything to blow your mind either. However, the DX1215 did perform better than some other devices for around the same price. The DX1215 relies on Intel's integrated HD graphics with a frame rate of 45.8 fps.

Overall the DX1215 from Toshiba is stylish with some sleek peripherals and an awesome touchscreen and speakers. However, it isn't the best when it comes to performance and the software isn't top-of-the-line either. A lot of unnecessary software and an interface that isn't optimized for a touchscreen are definitely some major inconveniences but not necessarily a deal breaker for most.

iLid Computer Tables

iLid computer tableLove having a desktop computer but hate how your monitor takes up a lot of space? If so, iLid has the solution for you! iLid has just designed an LCD monitor table that gives you easy access to an LCD monitor whenever you need it without taking up premium desktop space.

The table comes with a monitor attached to a panel that is mounted on a friction-fitting hinge. Once flipped over, all you have to do is adjust the monitor to your desired viewing angle and you are ready to go. Your keyboard sits on a convenient storage shelf or optional pull-out tray so your desk is free for everything else you need it for.

The adjustable monitor angles accommodate different working styles and users are able to manipulate it in order to suit their own workspace needs. In addition to that, iLid computer workstations offer you 10" of depth on your desktop when the screen is in use, ensuring that you have enough room for both your computer and whatever you are working on.

iLid computer workstations are perfect for classroom settings, allowing professors to have the computers up or down depending on the day's activities. In a professional setting, these desks make the necessary exchange of computer and text resources as effortless as turning over a piece of paper.

The best thing is that iLid offers single and double iLid computer stations. The double iLid station offers two slots for two monitors separated by a desk space. The single configuration is a comprehensive solo workstation that is ideal for anybody who is working from home or uses their computer desk for more than just using a computer.

LG ISP5 Series Coming Soon

LG ISP5 SeriesWhile it isn't news that your computer monitor provides you with invaluable experience when using your computer, there are companies out there that are trying to make that experience better. One such company is LG and one such series of monitors is the LG IPS5 Series, which looks to provide an increased user experience.

The LG IPS5 Series uses an IPS panel (obviously) in its design in order to provide a better picture. Color temperatures measure in at nearly 6,500K and the contrast ratio tops out at 5,000,000:1. In addition to that, all monitors in the series also have a full 1,920 x 1,080 HD resolution.

Another interesting feature is the Dual Package feature. This makes adding a secondary monitor to your setup much simpler and also allows you to have a pretty cool looking setup. You also don't have to mess with calibrating the monitors as each one is calibrated before you buy it. You will even get a report from LG about how your particular monitor was calibrated.

The LG IPS5 Series comes in two sizes, 21.5" and 23", and should both be available soon. However, you could always wait until November when LG unleashes the ISP5P, which gives you everything you get with the standard ISP5 as well as a posing stand with adjustable height.

Pricing is currently unavailable though both monitors do look very nice, especially if you are considering a new monitor or building a custom PC. Keep an eye out for the LG ISP5 Series of monitors when they start dropping in on store shelves in the next couple of weeks.
