For years PC makers have tried to come up with a true all-in-one desktop, but more often than not their efforts look like a few components that have been glued together

or presented in other impractical forms. There's at least one new model on the Korean market, however, that really does seem to live up to its billing.

The "All-In-One" computer from Seoul-based SBCORE appears to combine all its functions and features in one solid aluminum-finished block that houses CPU, screen and speakers, as well as Intel Core 2 Duo chips, up to 2GB of memory and the usual raft of desktop specs. Its 24-inch LCD also has full high-definition resolution so it can serve as a TV as well, BornRich notes.

Unfortunately for us, there's no word or pricing or whether it will be available beyond the Asian market. So in the meantime, we'll just be left to our own mutant devices.
