DigiTimes writes Intel has begun promoting its adaptive all-in-one PC concept. Basically a hybrid of a tablet and an all-in-one PC, these systems feature high-end specifications, a large-size touch panel and an internal battery enabling you to carry the device around. The chip giant anticipates this new design can triple volume of all-in-one PC sales in 2013 to triple of those in 2008.
Intel suggested that the new adaptive all-in-one PCs should feature a size between 18.4- to 27-inch and add an on-board battery. The devices will also need to feature an industrial design to allow it to lay completely flat.
For 2013, Intel's adaptive all-in-one PC designs also suggest adoption of magnesium-aluminum alloy chassis, PMMA touch panels and high-density li-poly batteries. At the end of 2013, the design reference will change to a high-resolution display and compound materials-based parts.
As for the devices' motherboard, Intel is mainly pushing its Thin Mini-ITX form factor, and motherboard makers including ASRock, Gigabyte Technology, Elitegroup Computer System(ECS) and China-based Wibtek, have already prepared several models for supply.
