All-in-one PC is a pretty cool thing for people short on space or who simply prefer a neat desk. And just in case you are a Linux fan too, we have some good news for you!
The UK-based PC manufacturer Entroware, which specializes in custom Linux systems, has launched the new Ares PC. (Source: Forbes). This all-in-one PC is shipped with Ubuntu or Ubuntu MATE and is great for home, office, business, and classrooms use.
AIO PCs like the 24″ Ares pack all the components of a traditional computer into the monitor housing; their all parts are tucked behind the display in a sleek design.
The base model for Ares has a starting price of £739 (824 Euros) and offers a 24-inch 1080p matte display with built-in speakers.
It has Intel Core-i3 8100 at 3.6GHz under the hood, along with 8GB of RAM clocked at 2400MHz, and a 120GB SSD loaded with your chosen version of Ubuntu or Ubuntu MATE.
Additionally, the Entroware offers a 3-year warranty on the Ares PC.
Interested users have several upgrade options that can be ramped up for a fully-loaded for £2689 Ares. It will pack 6-core, 4.6GHz Intel Core-i7 8700, 32GB of RAM, and a 2TB NVMe SSD and an additional 4TB SSD drive.
You can also choose to bundle an additional monitor along with the setup but there isn’t a 4K display option yet.
On the connectivity front, it comes with Intel Wireless-AC & Bluetooth. It has the following ports:
- 4 x USB Hi-Speed 2.0
- 2 x USB SuperSpeed 3.1
- 2 x Audio Jacks (Line Out, Mic In)
- 1 x RJ-45 Ethernet
