Samsung's ATIV One is part of a new breed of computers called "all in one" PCs. Rather than having separate pieces for the monitor and main computing unit, these two are conjoined together—"all in one"—into a slim and sophisticated package that eliminates all of the wires except the power cable. You’ll find the essential ports on the back of the device. Despite a large 21.5-inch touchscreen, it is less than 0.2-inch thick at its edges, meaning it will fit in just about anywhere in your home or office.
The ATIV One has more going for it than good looks. It’s versatile. Here are just a few of the ways you might use this powerful new PC.
In the Living Room
Thanks to its large screen and integrated wireless technology, the ATIV One works well as one of the key entertainment devices in the house. Kick back and stream videos from the Internet—or watch pictures and clips you've shot and saved on your Galaxy. Want a little extra info on the actress you're watching—or the third baseman who just made that amazing catch? Use the ATIV One's touchscreen to do split-screen double duty while you look up that information online.
In the Family Room
When it's time for gaming, wireless peripherals mean you can fire away from the comfort of the couch—or get up close and swipe away at more interactive games on the included touchscreen. Either way, the high-end graphics card, a rich colorful screen, and enhanced audio technology all work together to immerse you in the game.
In the Kitchen
The ATIV One can replace a whole shelf of cookbooks—and then some. Its bright display brings color photos and cooking videos to life, and the touchscreen means you can quickly pause the video when you need a little extra time to catch up. No more fumbling for the right button on the keyboard or mouse while the sauce starts to boil.
In the Home Office
Equipped with the latest processors and plenty of RAM, the ATIV One really shines when it comes to getting work done. Your most demanding tasks are no match for its high-performing CPU, and its roomy hard drive means you'll have plenty of space for even the largest collections of music, videos and files.
The ATIV One combines fast wireless technology, an up to one-terabyte hard drive, and Samsung's new HomeSync Lite software to turn your computer into an on-site cloud server. That means you won’t have to worry about backups; HomeSync Lite backs up all the computers in the house automatically, while serving as a central repository for all of your digital content.
