Former laptop-exclusive Toshiba has introduced its second all-in-one desktop this year, debuting the 23-inch, touch-screen-equipped DX730. This new unit joins the 21.5-inch DX1210 which Toshiba introduced this past August.

Based on its specs, the $956.99 DX730 sounds like a competitive-enough all-in-one compared with other Windows-based touch-screen models in its price range. Toshiba offers a choice of second-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs, a 1TB hard drive, 4GB of RAM, and an HDMI input for connecting external media components. Toshiba also highlights the DX730's Onkyo-provided speakers, giving this system a point of comparison against HP's new Beats Audio-powered TouchSmart all-in-ones.

Other than the larger screen size, the DX730 seems to mirror the DX1210 we reviewed this summer, almost exactly. That system debuted at $935, and it has the same 1,920x1,080-pixel resolution as the DX730, but it currently sells for around $899. At that price, the $970 baseline DX730 and its larger screen looks like a fairly priced deal compared with the DX1210, but we're interested to see the price increase and what other features might come along with the Core i7-based version. Presumably we'll find out when the DX730 goes on sale, at Best Buy only, on October 2.
