NEC's latest All-in-One, the Lavie Home AIO, is targeted directly at families. The AIO sports a Core i7 Comet Lake-U CPU and a 27-inch FHD display. The Home AIO pumps sound through screen-mounted speakers thanks to LG's Crystal Sound Display technology. Users can turn the PC on with their voice and call out to Alexa or Cortana to launch apps.

NEC’s new Lavie Home AIO is a beautiful All-in-One targeted at the home market. The Home AIO has a few tricks up its sleeve that may make it a good fit for the family.

The Home AIO runs on a Comet Lake Intel Core i7-10510U clocked at 1.8 GHz with 8 GB (2x 4 GB) SO-DIMM DDR4-2666 RAM and a 256 GB PCIe SSD. Users can also configure the Home AIO to use an extra 3 TB 5400 RPM 3.5” HDD for mass storage. The All-in-One also has a DVD±R drive and plenty of I/O: three USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports, two USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports, an Ethernet jack, a microSD card slot, and a combo headphone/microphone jack.

Sound is pumped through the AIO’s screen thanks to LG’s Crystal Sound Display technology. The four speakers (2x 1.5 W full-range, 2x 1.2 W tweeter) situated behind the display vibrate the glass to direct sound at the user. The Home AIO can also double as a smart speaker thanks to its Wake on Voice software. Users can turn on the PC with their voice or invoke Alexa or Cortana to launch apps through the four-array microphone setup.

The display is a 27-inch FHD IPS panel rated at 250 nits peak brightness. Wireless connections are handled through the 802.11ax (2x2) WiFi card and Bluetooth 5.0. The entire setup measures in at 24.23 x 11.27 x 13.52 inches (615.4 x 286.1 x 343.4 mm) and weighs 23.37 lbs (10.6 kg).

The Lavie Home AIO will be available March 2020 in a “Fine White” color starting at US $1799.99.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
