This entertainment-focused PC is all about audio: specifically, the four Beats-powered speakers sitting right beneath the display. They're loud, easily filling a room with music, and they sound pretty good, too.

In typical Beats fashion, the audio can be a little bass heavy. You can tweak the audio to your liking by way of some built-in Beats Audio equalizer software.

The power button sits up on the top-right corner, and is easy to reach. Many all-in-ones stick their power buttons back behind the chassis, which can be a bit cumbersome.

This slide-out hook will hold up your Beats headphones, though obviously any pair would work. It's a nice touch.

The all-in-one can't lie completely flat, but you can lean it back a fair amount.

The hinge is rather sturdy, and while it isn't exactly arduous, it doesn't glide into place like some of the other all-in-ones I've reviewed.

You'll find most of the connectivity options on the back. The machine also offers Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.

A pair of USB 3.0 ports, a media card reader, and the headphone jack sit on the left side. Press that HDMI In button, and you'll swap between the all-in-one's display and the content displayed on any devices that are connected to the HDMI port -- like a gaming console or tablet, for example.

The included DVD burner can be upgraded to a Blu-ray player, if you'd like.
