Why waste valuable desk space on an old-school PC tower when you can combine the PC with the display in a single all-in-one system? While PC OEMs offer countless all-in-one you can choose from, if you are after something special or custom, then building your own is the way to go.
But what do you need to build your own all-in-one PC? Here's a tour of what you need.

When building a desktop PC, I usually don't list a case because they are very personal to the user. However, when it comes to all-in-one systems, the chassis is all important because this is both the display and the home for all your components.
For this build I've chosen the Loop L5 LP-2150 chassis, which is based around a 21.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. It supports thin mini-ITX motherboards and LGA1155 processors up to 65W TDP. It features two USB 2.0 ports, and has integrated speakers, a microphone, and a front-facing camera.
There are many others you can choose from, and if you are interested in shopping around, I suggest you take a look at Intel's Design Component Catalog for inspiration.
