The Do-It-Yourself All-In-One Computer Standard from Intel

All-in-one computers, also known as AIO, are systems built inside the same case as the video monitor, designed to remove clutter from your desk. The problem so far is that parts for all-in-one computers are not standardized, meaning that each manufacturer uses its own design and choice of components, which may not be compatible with an all-in-one from another manufacturer. To solve this problem, Intel is leading the industry in creating a standard for all-in-one components. This way, parts designed for one system will fit in another, making the life of AIO manufacturers easier. This standard also allows users to build their own all-in-one computers from scratch.

One of such systems that follows Intel’s guidelines is the Loop LP-2150, which is a “barebone” all-in-one computer with a 21.5” screen (hence the model number). We will take a look at this system to see exactly what are the new standards proposed by Intel. This system consists only of the LCD screen and the chassis where the computer will be built, which includes a memory card reader, two USB ports, audio jacks, a pair of speakers, the Wi-Fi antenna, and the electronics for the video monitor. The system also includes a stand and an external power supply. All other components must be bought separately.

Let’s first take a look at the exterior of the Loop LP-2150 and, on the next page, what makes this all-in-one different from other ones available on the market today.

Opening the Loop LP-2150 is very easy, as there are only five screws on its back.
