PIO Wins an Overwhelming Victory Comparisons among PIO vs AIO vs DIY Desktop

SHENZHEN, China, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The earliest form of computer displays were large cathode ray tubes. Due to the size of these displays, computer systems comprised of three key components: the monitor, the computer case, and the input devices. As the size of the monitors decreased, computer companies started to integrate the computer case into the monitor to create an all-in-one (AIO) package. However, these all-in-one computer systems were normally in bad heat dissipation conditions, had limited upgrade options, and generally cost a lot compared to a standard computer setup. Considering such conditions, Huntkey releases its first PIO (part-in-one) system, which is a DIY All-In-One PC. Fashionable, with stable performance, and is cost effective, PIO opens up a new DIY era.

According to the table above, an AIO/PIO is light and easy to lift at around 30 pounds. Compared with the traditional DIY PC, you'll never feel like your desktop is bulky and taking up a lot of space. The overall design of this kind of PC is sleek and smooth, while packing a powerful punch. You can adjust the height of the PC for a comfortable fit from almost every angle. And the two-hinge support makes it easy to tilt the screen far back for easy hands-on use.

Part-in-One or All-in-one computers are really just a style of desktop computer systems. They still have the same requirements in terms of features and function. The only difference is the number of components. All-in-ones have a single box that is the display and computer, while Part-in-Ones have the monitor, case, PSU, speaker, and camera already installed with the CPU/motherboard/hard disk/memory need to be installed, versus the desktop that is comprised of the computer case plus a separate monitor. This gives the part-in-one and all-in-one computer systems a smaller overall profile than a desktop computer system. Undeniably, the part-in-ones or all-in-one is smaller than the desktop system, but it still is tethered to a desktop space.

For an AIO, what you see is what you get, which means you have limited upgradeability. While all of the PIOs and most desktop computer cases can be easily opened by the consumer to install replacements or upgrades, all-in-one systems tend to restrict access to the components due to their small nature. This typically only limits systems to having their memory upgraded.

Another issue that all-in-one computer has is their performance. Due to their small sizes and need for lower power and less heat generating components, many all-in-one PCs feature mobile designed components including processors, memory, and drives. All of these help make the all-in-one small but they also hinder the overall performance of the system. Typically these laptop components will not perform as well as a traditional desktop or DIY PIOs.

There is a huge distinct advantage that a Part-in-One system has over an all-in-one and a desktop is in price. The typical all-in-one system now costs roughly two times more than a PIO or a DIY desktop. Cost-effective governs while the price equals, it is hard to reject the temptation of a PIO.

In a word, if you want a computer that doesn't take up a lot of space, offers a stylish design, produces powerful desktop performance, and is cost-effective, then consider the Part-In-One PC. Where a desktop PC is often bulky, and an All-In-One PC isn't able to upgrade, PIO is the perfect melding of both worlds because it contains everything you want within its big screen.
