    Default TowerPlay: Modular & High performance Spanish All-In-One with Desktop Hardware

    http://image.prntscr.com/image/9d495...a8f8e664f3.png
    A Spanish entrepreneur just presented this nice idea after three years of work. It consists in an All-In-One with desktop (and not laptop) hardware, which is 100% modular (parts can be exchanged), integrating a 27" LG IPS monitor (TN also offered) and 2.1 20W sound system with a subwoffer.

    The showed version includes "not expensive" but yet well performing hardware: Intel Core i5 6500, MSI Z170I Gaming Pro AC, MSI GTX 1060 3GB (this GPU selection should be improved, I think), 16GB of RAM, a 120GB SSD helped by a 1TB HDD. The power supply is an unknown 700W one (I asked the man what's the model, hope something decent please ). The price of all the gear would be 1400 euros which -I think- it's better than expected, as All In Ones at this price point don't achieve this level of performance, and we're talking about a new product by a small entrepreneur, not a huge company. I made a "normal desktop" configuration including a 27" LG IPS monitor and this hardware, and the price was around 1250 euros, so I think (considering the points I talked about before) it's a good start price.

    I like this project and I wish luck to the creator.

    I like the idea, but I want to see it disassembled as more than a render.

    Obviously it's a prototype. The man told me "650-850W 80 plus PSU". I don't know which one. Maybe I should insist on the question

    Prototype, sure. But obviously he has a render and he has a working version of something that he's showing off in the videos.... What's it look like inside?

    The idea isn't entirely new. Take a look at the Digital Storm Aura, Maingear Alpha-34 or Origin Omni (same thing, really).

    Either it will not cool down, or it will be weak.

    Just look at that steam-something-whatever thing. Anybody thinks its a good idea to put 300W graphics into shoebox?

    Well... the cooling for that thing is just awful. At least these AIO's have somewhat decent airflow.

    I don't see what the big deal is... it's a mitx motherboard with wi-fi built in, a pci-e riser cable allowing the video card to be laid flat.
    The video card is probably one of those VR versions of 1070 which has one 1 or 2 hdmi connectors on the inside allowing him to use a small hdmi cable to connect the monitor to video card without external cables...
    The SSD drives take very little space and there's plenty of 1u or similar cpu coolers with heapipes and all that to keep everything low height.
    The three fans make it look ugly though...

    Silverstone has recently made some case which can be mounted to the VESA mounting position. It was for Integrated Electronics something, but if it was somewhat bigger, say some small SFX, aluminium to keep light…such system could be put to almost any monitor. I believe that may be more interesting.
