    More than the AIOs (generally featuring low end specs), I am really interested in Mini-ITX based platforms, especially for gaming (nvidia's Maxwell & intel's broadwell would really help in driving down the thermals). Reply

    If Ready Mode actually works with software like Plex or various bittorrent clients, I might just end up upgrading. My gaming PC's CPU is getting a bit long in the tooth but is still adequate for gaming. However, it's also doing double duty as a Plex server and using up too much power idling. Ready Mode might be what convinces me it's finally time to upgrade and get my electricity bill lower. Reply

    Ian, when looking at the AIOs in Best Buy the other day, I saw that Dell has an 18" portable AIO. It's really just a giant Windows 8 tablet with a docking station, but they market it as an AIO. Reply

    The problem I see with Ready Mode is that it leaves UI - and hence much of the UX - in the hands of entities that are historically awful at developing UI (i.e. most PC OEMs). Reply
