If you were blasting the Springsteen earlier, you may as well keep it cranked. Velocity Micro's joining the "Assembled in the USA" party and the Windows 8 brigade with its new Edge AIO. The 23.6-inch all-in-one comes in a brushed aluminum frame, packing a 1,920 x 1,080 LED display, 720p front facer, SD slot, ports for HDMI out and USB 3.0, as well as support for WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth. The basic model is set to retail for $799, but expect that price to climb once you factor in a host of available configurations: your choice of Intel's Core i3/i5/i7 processors, a max of 8GB DDR3 RAM, HDD or SSD storage options that top out at 2TB and 240GB, respectively, as well as Home and Pro editions of Windows 7 and 8. Orders for the homegrown rig are expected to begin shipping as early as next week. Hit up the break for the related PR.

Richmond, VA - Dec 3, 2012 - Velocity Micro®, the premier builder of award winning enthusiast desktops, laptops, peripherals, and the remarkable line of Cruz™ tablets announces the Edge AIO, a stunning 23.6" All-in-One PC. Specifically designed to fit the decor of any kitchen, living room, home office, or bedroom, the Edge AIO is a rare combination of aesthetics and power, and is fully configurable to meet the varying needs of all customers. Configurations start at just $799.
"The All-in-One PC market is full of uninspired, underpowered hardware that not only offers a sub-par user experience, but doesn't even look good doing it," said Randy Copeland, President and CEO of Velocity Micro. "We designed the Edge AIO to be the solution to those low powered, low expectation, chunky looking All-in-Ones."
Available in Pearl White, the Edge AIO combines the craftsmanship, performance, and support of an award-winning Velocity Micro desktop with the convenience and efficiency of an All-in-One. The Edge AIO's 23.6" 1080p screen offers nearly 25% more viewing area than the 21" competition. Powered by dual and quad core Intel® processors, the Edge AIO is fully customizable to allow customers to decide how much or how little horsepower they need. A thin and lightweight design with brushed aluminum accents gives the Edge AIO a refined look that matches any room's decor.
