I'm not sure if this is in the right place, but I'll start anyway.

 

Exactly as it says in the title; has anyone know where to get All in One PC cases.  Please exclude places like TradeMe, Fishpond, Amazon, etc.  What about thin miniITX (to put in it).  I'm looking at building one.  I know it won't be particularly fast, but does anyone know where to get one?

Your best bet is to get a case that can be mounted to the VESA mount on your monitor.

Anything I say is the ramblings of an ill informed, opinionated so-and-so, and not representative of any of my past, present or future employers, and is also probably best disregarded.

I've seen those, but that's not what I'm trying to achieve.  On a side note though, is Elive like AliExpress and Amazon (where people just sell their fake knock-off stuff like PBTech?

 

 

 

Thanks!

Yeah, Elive just happened to have the first example of what I was thinking of.

 

I'm curious, why do you need to have a monitor with a case built in, as opposed to a monitor with a case directly affixed? I'm not sure what the difference is, as you should be able to share the power lead between the screen and the device, and get a short HDMI cable to keep everything working together nicely.

For one thing I'm just curious, and in my opinion seems nicer, I don't really know, I just want to see. I also think it might be a bit tidier.

I think you're greatly overestimating how "nice" a DIY AIO is. The AIO's you buy off the shelves are quite tidy and slim, as they're using what is essentially a mobile system inside the case. They're laptops with no batteries or the ability to close.

 

The only DIY solutions I've seen are NOT nice and tidy, by any means, and if you gave it to grandma or even aunty, you'd probably be asked what that monstrosity is.

 

Stick with the mini computer on a VESA mount if you want it all in one, in my opinion, as you just won't get anything like what you get off the shelf, and realistically all the DIY ones don't target the market you seem to want to build for, as the off the shelf systems have that niche cornered far too well to compete.

Have you seen Intel's thin miniItx standard and these cases?

Not what I was thinking, but I'll have a look.  Seems interesting.
