New All-in-One PC Using NextWindow Touch Screens
NextWindow, the market and technology leader in optical touch screens for desktop PCs and large-format displays, today announced that another PC maker will soon begin selling an all-in-one computer with NextWindow touch screens. Global PC and consumer electronics developer Medion recently announced plans to offer a multi touch-enabled system with a 24" screen. Branded the Medion X9613, the all-in-one PC will be available initially in Germany.
All-in-one computers represent a growing segment of the larger PC market. These products combine all hardware and software inside a computer's monitor, and they mainly are desktop systems though some, such as the Medion X9613, can be mounted to a wall. US-based electronics giants Dell and Hewlett-Packard were among the first companies to offer a PC version of the all-in-one computer. Both companies are using optical touch screens from NextWindow in their all-in-ones. Gartner is forecasting the number of all-in-ones shipped (with a screen size greater than 16") will double from 2009 to 2010.
