Toshiba announced today a new addition to its line of all-in-one PCs, the DX735. As was the case for previous all-in-one Toshiba PCs, the company is billing the device as more than just a desktop computer – it’s a “complete entertainment hub.”
Adding weight to the entertainment hub description is a variety of audio and video capabilities. The fully multi-touch screen of the DX735 measures a respectable 23-inches and can display full 1080p high-definition video. An HDMI port allows for high-def gaming. And, according to the press release, the DX735 also features “high-end” audio capabilities, delivered through Onkyo stereo speakers, which Toshiba boasts were “professionally tuned by experts at Waves.” The DX735 also includes Waves’ MaxxAudio sound processing technology, which gives users “unparalleled performance, delivering sound that is louder, clearer, fuller and more intelligible.”
The DX735 also comes standard with a Bluetooth keyboard, which can be stored at the base of the device, if one wanted to use the PC as more of a TV than a regular computer – something many will likely choose to do, as select versions of the DX735 come loaded with a TV tuner. A Bluetooth mouse is also included.
But the DX735 isn’t just a suped-up TV – it has the beefy computing muscle to back things up. Inside, you’ll find either an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 process, 4GB of DDR3 memory, and a 1TB 7200 RPM hard drive.
The DX735 also has one standard USB 3.0 port and four USB 2.0 ports. Another USB 3.0 port allows for Toshiba’s “Sleep & Charge” feature, which lets users power-up their smartphones or other devices without the computer having to be on. Another Toshiba technology, Sleep & Music, allows users to play music from an external device, through the computer’s speakers, without having to turn the computer on.
The Toshiba DX735 will be available at BestBuy, for a starting price of $956.99, on October 2.
