Go to solution Solved by peaking duck,

as a techie, i always have a 1 spare of everything that can fail.

initial diagnoses and loan hardware is chargable, then upsell a new system

 

no concerns really

Between going to Best Buy and the other pc shops. then coming home and reading up on todays tech news... 
http://www.dailytech.com/Intel+Previews+Devils+Canyon+Chip+Black+Book+and+Broadwell/article34560.htm

As a computer tech, this raises concerns on "How can I repair an Aio".... 
Within 2 to 3 years the average user will not have a desktop tower, but an All in one unit.. While the towers are dinosaurs unless you build it. 

Soo are there any other repair man in here who have concerns about Aio repairs?....Will they make it so we the field techs can fix them? Or do the big boys like geek squad, staples, office max and others get to finally take the field and say "well have to send it back".. or "you can't upgrade"...

What's your concerns and thoughts?

I believe no market would lock themselves in not allowing a consumer to upgrade, but then again.. I'm never sure what CEO have in mind....

CEO's usually have nothing but market control in mind. No off of that topic, AIO's will be around forever however as long as us tech enthusiast are around system building ain't going anywhere.

LOL I thought you meant AIO coolers

 

The majority of people don't really do demanding tasks on their computers. The most demanding thing would be a 1080p movie or basic photoshop stuff.

And since computer chips are getting more and more powerful, and more complex (The CPU can basically handle everything) people can achieve what they want to on tablet sized computers.

 

There's no reason for someone to buy a massive tower pre-built system if all they're going to do is facebook, youtube, a word documents.

 

The large tower and high performance computers will always have a place. Just like how super computers that take up massive sized rooms will always have a place. (been around since like the 50's)

Simple work tasks don't require powerful machines anymore.

We can already tinker with AIO's. It's just less convenient than a tower like fixing a laptop. 

If you ever need help with a build, read the following before posting: http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/3061-build-plan-thread-recommendations-please-read-before-posting/

Oh that's a very good way to put it. Laptops are quite like that if you think about it.

Thank you, I started to looking up to see how i can turn this thing into a blessing. Especially since I also try to advertise that I build systems... 

So far I found two of them on newegg that are over a year old. So hopefully the rest of the market will cater to this and allow system builders to continue to custom build but in an AIO format.

Probably not as most AIO's run laptop hardware and are designed to fit as much as they can is as small of a form factor. In fact they are very much like laptops. That dont open or a super thick tablet.

After working in a  computer retail store for 7 years, I think I can count the number of people who wanted to upgrade their existing pc on one hand, probably on none of my fingers. People just tend to keep it so and so long until its "slow" then buy a new one.

 

That said they are no less repairable than a desktop/laptop, they just happen to use different components. Just like its possible to repair iPhones etc, its just that you dont pop to your local PC store for the parts they are a little bit more bespoke

 

I actually like all in ones, especially things like the iMac design. We also had this awesome lenovo "table pc" that folded flat and came with bluetooth dice and little suction cup stick on joysticks for table top gaming, was like i7, 16gb of ram, 2tb of storage and a decent graphics card for like £1500

Is it also a concern if they may make better longer lasting hardware? Its likely that a tech may be reduced to dealing with user created software problems, if they haven't already.
