    MAINGEAR, an award-winning custom PC builder whose name is known for building quality custom desktops, laptops, and workstations is yet again pushing the envelope of placing performance and quality in PC solutions to heights never before seen. The MAINGEAR ALPHA 24 Super Stock is an all-in-one computer that does not compromise in the way that the form factor is known to do: desktop-level performance.

    Unrivaled Power in its Class:
    While the MAINGEAR ALPHA 24 like the ALPHA 21 is fully upgradeable, the Super Stock options place components which are much more common in high performance desktop gaming computers in the form factor of an all-in one PC solution. The MAINGEAR ALPHA 24 Super Stock is a touchscreen all-in-one that offers a 95 W Intel Core i7 3770K as the heart of the machine, with a full-sized, desktop discrete NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 (with options starting with the GeForce GTX 650) to provide gaming prowess that has never before been found in an all-in-one custom computer.


    Best of all, each of these components are upgradeable and user serviceable: no need to worry about obsolescence or falling behind the technology race. The ALPHA 24 all in one desktop conforms to Intel's thin-mini ITX standard, assuring that the motherboard and processors of the future are able to be placed into the machine as well as premium SSD solutions from Corsair provides lightning fast response time for any program or game. The already robust graphics solution is also ensured upgradeability by way of two 8-pin PCI-E power connectors, so that high end graphics can always be placed in the ALPHA 24 without worry.

    Ingenious NVIDIA Synergy and Design, Entertainment from all Sources:
    The MAINGEAR ALPHA 24 takes advantage of the Intel 3rd generation core processor and the desktop version of NVIDIA Optimus: Synergy. Synergy technology works in tandem with Intel's HD graphics, allowing for conservative power consumption while watching videos or internet browsing but delivering power on demand with any gaming need. An optional CableCARD tuner also turns the ALPHA 24 into a touch-enabled Media Center; a digital cable-enabled HTPC. The ALPHA 24 also has a HDMI in, allowing a cable box, XBOX 360, PS3, or other device to take advantage of its full HD display.

    With its simple and clean design, this 1920 x 1080 glossy touchscreen all-in-one fits everyone's style and home. Customers can also order the MAINGEAR ALPHA 24 with a custom paint finish that lets the user tailor the all-in-one PC to their aesthetic design.

    MAINGEAR ALPHA 24: (Super Stock options)
    ● Intel Core i3 3240 3.4 GHz, upgradeable to Intel Core i7 3770K

    "In this day and age, there shouldn't be a reason anyone would need to compromise for an all-in-one performance PC."says Wallace Santos, CEO and founder of MAINGEAR. "Other all-in-one PC solutions pale in comparison to the ALPHA 24 and can be summed up with just a few words: 1080p gaming set to Ultra, maxed anti-aliasing and tessellation."

    Whether it's the latest PC or console games you want to play or experience full HD movie entertainment, the MAINGEAR ALPHA 24 fits any PC need as well as any lifestyle and will be there to support future generation technology with its upgrade capabilities.

    hah... i could totally troll my friend's with this... hook up my old xbox 360 via the hdmi and be like, look my xbox can play pc games. I could even have my games set up to use the xbox controller.

    kidding aside... Looks like a nice compact solution for those that want desktop power but can't afford a "desktop replacement" laptop. oh and the "zero bloat ware" is a big plus

    Really like this idea, I think it's good that there seems to be a trend these days for smaller PC's but without compromising much on performance or cooling.
