Packard Bell trims the fat on PB oneTwo all-in-one desktop PC line

Don't look now, UKers -- but you've got yet another option in the burgeoning world of all-in-one PCs. Thrilling, we know. Packard Bell has just issued the revamped PB oneTwo, an all-in-one PC line that may very well end up referred to as "PB 12" in your domicile. Nomenclature aside, this freshened up device is a full 65 percent slimmer than the one your mate purchased two years ago, giving you 65 percent more reason to brag about it once you've taken delivery. It's available in 21.5-inch and 23-inch flavors, with Intel's 2nd-generation Core i CPU family, NVIDIA or AMD graphics, a pair of 2.5-watt speakers, two USB 3.0 sockets (along with four of the slower USB 2.0 variety), an optional Blu-ray drive, up to 8GB of DDR3 memory and a 1,920 x 1,080 display on the both of 'em. You'll also get a 2 megapixel webcam, multi-format card reader, optional (seriously?) WiFi / Bluetooth, gigabit Ethernet and a bundled keyboard and mouse. The PB oneTwo M (21.5-inch) and PB oneTwo L (23-inch) will ship later this month for £599 and £699, respectively, though there's no word on availability beyond the Queen's backyard.
