[ music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Rich Brown, Senior Editor for CNET.com. Today we're gonna take a look at the HP Pavilion All-in-One MS225. This is a budget priced all in one, designed for basic productivity, or it can even work as a kitchen terminal just to kind of get on the web and browse around. Now each piece designed for the system is pretty clean, it's black and gray, and it can go pretty much in any room in your house. The 18.4-inch screen is not touch enabled, like a lot of all-in-ones we've seen lately. But that doesn't make this any less of a capable computer. Now this is a relatively no frills all-in-one. It does have a web cam, as well as a few useful ports and things around the system. But there's no HDMI input. Like we said there's no touch. All the input devices are wired. And has a relatively fast dual core AMD chip, which makes this system pretty affordable, but still a little bit faster than your average net top that you see on the very low end of the all-in-one scale. Now it doesn't mean that we'd use this system for high end media editing, but for basic browsing around, if you want to play with a spreadsheet, or edit some photos, you should definitely be able to get through your day-to-day tasks with this system. In addition to serve as a basic work computer, we actually think you could stick this in the kitchen and get pretty good use out of it. It plays streaming video from all the major sources online from Netflix, to HuLu, to YouTube. And there's no problem, they can play it all very smoothly. The audios may be a little bit soft, so while we wouldn't really use this to fill up a room, but if you want to get in close, or you want to just sort of have some background noise going, this system will definitely do the job. On the side here you can see there's a media card reader, a couple of USB ports, as well as your typical audio outputs. Around the back you get a few more USB ports, as well as an Ethernet jack, another audio jack, and the system actually does come with 802.11N wireless included. It's a nice feature. It keeps the cable clutter down. And on the side here you can see there's a DVD drive, as well as brightness controls. Now we generally prefer display power or hard run controls on an all-in-one, but if it's brightness or nothing, we'll certainly take the brightness control. HP is selling this all-in-one for about $599. You can still get a budget desktop for around the same price, or even less that's probably faster. That said, we expect the budget PC space is gonna be fairly competitive this year. We wouldn't be surprised to see screen sizes get bigger, processors get faster, and more features start coming down to lower prices. Still if you want to buy one now this is defiantly not a bad way to go. So I'm Rich Brown, this is the HP Pavilion All-in-One MS225. ^E00:02:17
