Conclusion: If your computing needs are extremely basic—meaning you use a computer only for web-browsing, email, word processing, and other light productivity tasks—the VPC100 should meet your needs. But most people will soon find themselves chafing at its limitations.
Pros: Inexpensive; consumes little power; thin and wall-mountable; built-in DVD burner
Cons: Slow for all but the most basic tasks; tiny hard drive; wired (PS/2!) mouse and keyboard; DVD-decoder software not included
ViewSonic's VPC100 all-in-one PC lacks compelling extras

Summary: Everyone loves a big screen, and that's exactly what ViewSonic's VPC100 all-in-one desktop PC delivers (the screen is 18.5 inches). Unfortunately, to get to that point and hold the price down , ViewSonic has taken a few shortcuts with the system's core functionality. It's not a great performer and it lacks the touch screen and 802.11n Wi-Fi to make up for it.
Pros: Good quality display, comparable performance to rival budget all-in-ones
Cons: No touch screen, No Wireless-N connectivity (only B/G)
