All in One

The Spectria 610 AN is an example of an All-in-One computer.

Packard Bell's All-in-One design is basically a combination of a 14" Packard Bell monitor with speakers and a Packard Bell 3x3 Desktop - but just permanently attached.

One very smart thing that Packard Bell did was routing the VGA cable outside the case and connecting to the VGA connector on the back of the machine instead of attaching the VGA cable internally. While this might have been done to cut costs (the internals being the two separate systems - but just in a "combined" case), it also means that people could upgrade and/or replace the video card and still use the integrated monitor. Many AIOs, like those from Compaq, could not do this.
