Lenovo IdeaCentre c320 AiO
This a touch-based AiO that comes with a pre-installed Lenovo Eye distance system which detects your distance from the screen and displays a message that you are too close to the screen. It has Power cinema which includes photos, videos, music files, and games. You also get Wi-Fi, USB 3.0 and 6 USB 2.0 ports along with a front-facing 0.3 MP webcam. It packs dual-core CPU with 4 GB RAM and 500 GB hard disk drive space. The speaker quality on the AiO is supported by SRS premium sound. The keyboard keys are very well placed and with good graphics inbuilt, the display viewing is quite good. Graphics hardware is fine for casual multimedia consumption and for basic day-to-day activities, this one quite a handful. But nothing beyond that. The front camera is slightly lower for its config and could have been a lot better.

Price: Rs 28,000 (approx)
Key Specs:20 inch, 3.3 GHz Intel Core i3 CPU, 4 GB DDR3 RAM, Windows 7, 0.3 MP webcam, USB 3.0/ 2.0 ports

Dell Inspiron One AiO
The Inspiron One is quite the looker for its pricing and this all-black AiO features an edge-to-edge glass screen, giving it a bezel-less appearance, which comes in handy with the touch-optimized display powered by Windows 8. As far as performance is concerned, the Inspiron One is good, for basic productivity. It will get you through schoolwork and basic entertainment, such as streaming HD movies and playing music and is quite competent to handle multiple-applications. But it won’t handle gaming or other heavy-duty media-editing applications. It’s not meant for those tasks. It is capable of delivering multimedia at 30.7 frames per second but and this AiO is not for the gaming enthusiasts sharply when playing more demanding game titles. The speakers aren’t very loud, and music lacks depth, so all in all, for a budget AiO, its quite a competent option.

Price: Rs 32,000 (approx)
Key Specs:20 inch full HD 2.9 GHz Intel Core i3 CPU up to 4 GB DDR3 RAM, 1 TB HDD, 4 GB RAM, 5 USB 2.0 ports, Windows 8 OS

Acer Aspire Z AiO
Acer is another brand that offers its AiOs in the more reasonable price range. Like most of the budget AiOs, the Acer Aspire Z comes with a competent i5 processor along with 6 GB RAM. It comes with plethora of options like three USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports to access and stream multiple devices. It comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse and built-in DVD player as well as a HD webcam. For basic communication and lightweight usage, this AiO is best of the rest and with touch-optimized display; you can easily navigate between apps on Windows 8 OS. The hardware may seem to suggest that the Aspire Z is capable of handling heavy applications but the basic usage of this device is for surfing the web and doing basic productivity work, while multi-tasking is not its greatest strength.

Price: Rs 29,000 (approx)
Key Specs:23 inch full HD, 2.8 GHz dual-core Intel CPU, 4 GB DDR3 RAM (expandable up to 8 GB), 500 GB HDD Windows 8 OS, 2 USB 3.0 4 USB 2.0 ports, webcam
