All-in-one desktops court small-biz need for space, efficiency

It used to be that notebook design was inspired by desktop systems innovation. Now, however, that equation has been reversed.

The evidence comes in the form of an ever-growing crop of all-in-one desktop options, many of them entirely and especially appropriate for use by small businesses seeking to make the most of limited space and electricity resources. The rallying cry is thinner, more energy-efficient, more multimedia-savvy. And, of course, more touch-sensitive.

Among the latest batch of models fitting into this category is the very first all-in-one touchscreen desktop for the North America from smartphone leader Samsung (pictured below).

Consult this ZDNet Photo Gallery, "9 small-biz-appropriate touchscreen all-in-ones," for more details on the Samsung product and eight other new-ish all-in-one systems that have a touchscreen interface and that can be had for less than $1,000.
