The tech stork delivered bouncing baby twins this morning, in the form of two Advent all-in-one PCs. It's just as well -- we're horribly hungover and in no mood to clean up the droppings of an actual human infant.

The Advent AIO-101 and its slightly smaller brother, the AIO-156, look almost identical but have wildly differing specs. The AIO-101 gets an 18.4-inch display, a dual-core Athlon X2 3250e, ATI HD 3200 graphics, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive and a built-in TV tuner.

The AIO-156 is more of a nettop than a traditional all-in-one, and has a smaller 15.6-inch touch-sensitive display. It's driven by an Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and integrated Intel graphics. It's less powerful than its mighty sibling, but it's more versatile than the majority of nettops due to its integrated DVD-rewriter drive.

Both machines have highly adjustable screens. Each is attached to a protruding stalk, which can either raise or lower the display by about 8cm. The screen itself can also be tilted by up to 90 degrees vertically, so you could -- if the need arises -- aim them directly at the ceiling. We're not sure why you'd want to do this, but it's handy to have the option.

The AIO-101 will set you back £699, while the AIO-156 will run you £399. Watch for full reviews of both in the coming days and click through for more pics.
