Packard Bell skinny PB oneTwo announced

If you're in the market for a super-skinny all-in-one machine, and don't fancy going down the well-walked iMac path, Packard Bell hopes it might have the answer for you with its newly announced PB oneTwo AIO PC.

The PB oneTwo is described by its makers as the "slimmest ever all-in-one PC" although it hasn't given us the measurements so we'll have to take its word on that one. It's 65 per cent slimmer than its predecessor though.

What we do know is that the oneTwo comes in two size variations; a 21.5-inch M version, and a 23.5-inch L one.

Apart from the screen size, these machines are identical; even sharing the same pixel resolution - Full HD 1080p, with a 1000:1 contrast ratio and luminosity measuring 250 nits for their touchscreen panels. The sound is 2.5W stereo speakers.

In terms of the engine room, all the Windows 7 Premium action is powered by your choice of a 2nd gen Intel i7, i5 or i3 chip, with up to 8GB of RAM packed in too. Graphics are a choice of the Nvidia GeForce GT 530 or GT 520 or the AMD Radeon HD 645.

There's up to 2TB of space with the built in hard drive and there's a Blu-ray option for the optical drive as well. There's a 2-megapixel HD webcam built in, as well as a 5-in-1 card reader, HDMI, USB 3.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The PB oneTwo  will be available in November starting from £599 or £699 depending on whether you go M or L.
