Your Guide to Buying a Box Computer

Who Manufactures Box Computers?

Originally, box computers were only manufactured by a handful of companies, with Apple being the most obvious. However, over time, that has changed significantly. You can find all-in-one units produced by the following manufactures:

  • Apple
  • HP
  • Sony
  • Dell
  • Compaq
  • ASUS
  • Acer
  • Lenovo
  • Toshiba
  • Samsung
  • Gateway

Many box computers are actually built with handles molded into their cases to make moving them easier. However, for those who worry that these machines have the same limitations as laptops, there’s little to worry about. Laptops are often designed with lower performance specifications because of the concern for the battery. Box computers do not have this drawback, as they are designed to be plugged into a wall. That means these machines can offer the same performance as a desktop PC.

Of course, there are numerous other companies around the world that manufacture box computers, but those listed above are the best known and most widely available for consumers and businesses looking to buy one of these machines.
