Even though Apple has been successful with its iMac all-in-one systems for quite a while now, we have yet to see a corresponding system in the Windows / PC world that can enjoy a similar level of adoption by end users. One system that definitely won’t replace the iMac is the Prowise All-in-One, but that is entirely for reasons that have nothing to do with this nifty portable all-in-one computer.
Prowise is a Dutch company focusing on the B2B and educational market, active not only in the Netherlands but also (amongst others) in Australia and Hungary. Their Presenter software is a benchmark for user friendly digital learning environments in which you can rapidly create educational tools such as quizzes and presentations. (I’ve worked in educational IT in a former life, which goes some way towards explaining my enthusiasm). In addition to the software, they make digital whiteboards, built to spec in China, as well as tablets and since a while an AiO system.
Unlike the whiteboards and tablets, the AiO is based on an OEM barebone and if you know your stuff, you’ll see which model it’s been based on (hint: company name starts with L, ends with o). However, Prowise made a lot of small but significant changes and deliver the whole thing at a very attractive price point – shame you can’t buy one as a consumer, but if you’re a professional user or work in education, this is a very interesting machine.
