Most all-in one computers come with a wi-fi connection which allows you to connect to a wireless network just like your home internet. What most people do not realize is that even if your computer does not have a built in wi-fi connection you can still connect to a hot spot in your home. The all-in-one manufacturers of these PCs have realized that there are many households that do not have a hotspot in their homes and have decided to include built in wi-fi connections to their all in one computers.

The screen size on these all-in-one desktops is normally smaller than that of an all in one laptops. What this means is that if you are going to be using your all-in-one desktop for watching videos, streaming media, or doing other hands free tasks then you might want to opt for a smaller screen. Although most of the all-in-one desktops come with a matte finish, some manufacturers such as hp have designed their models to have a glass touch screen. If you are looking for a unique PC that has a larger viewing area, then having a glass touch screen will be more than adequate. If you are going to be using your all-in-one desk for gaming then the matte finish touch screens are definitely your best option.

Consider Prices

Another thing you should check for when comparing the pricing of the different models is how many ports do the all in one desktops have. If you are planning to connect a printer or scanner then you are going to need to find a model that has two ports. Usually the ones that are able to support dual-port cards will cost more than the single port models. If you are going to be connecting multiple devices such as game consoles then make sure that the desktops you are comparing have enough slots. Most manufacturers offer different sizes of monitors so make sure that you know the size of the monitors you would like to use before you purchase the desktops.

If you are looking for a bargain then you might want to check out the prices of all in one desktops that offer double the RAM and a Blu-Ray drive along with it. Typically the manufacturers that offer these at discounted prices will give you a very generous warranty. This way, if anything should happen to go wrong with your new system then you will be covered. Some manufacturers may even have a thirty day money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied with the purchase.

Advanced Computer

When it comes to searching online retailers for the best prices on the HP 24-inch all-in-one desktop computer, there are a few things you should consider. First and foremost you should make sure that the retailer has an excellent customer service record. In addition, you should find a retailer who offers free shipping with your purchase. If the website you are ordering from requires you to pay additional fees for delivery then you should look somewhere else. If the company ships your item then you should make sure that your item is going to be insured and that the shipping cost is not going to be any more than what you paid for the item. Many companies will put this cost on the item listing but it often will be hidden.

With the many options available on the market today it is easy to get overwhelmed. In order to keep you from making this mistake you should do your homework. Read about the different models offered by each manufacturer and base your decision on the features that you need to have.
