All-in-One Computers

An all-in-one (also known as AIO) is a desktop computer that integrates the system’s internal components into the same case as the display monitor, eliminating some connecting cables, allowing for a smaller footprint, adding a degree of portability, as compared to the standard desktop configuration of the separate display monitor and computer system case. The all-in-one form factor still requires an external power supply and must be deployed on a table, wall desk, or mounted to a mobile computer cart to use the (still separate) keyboard and mouse, making them less “portable” than a laptop that relies on power supplied by a rechargeable battery and offers a built-in keyboard with pointing device.


Major Healthcare-focused brands of All-In-One Computers include:

Advantech, HP, Lenovo
