It’s not the best looking all-in-one around, but it’s powerful and makes a perfect combined replacement for your TV and PC

All-In-One PCs are smaller, better looking and - for many users - more approachable and less intrusive than a hefty desktop tower PC. The Asus ET2220IUTI isn't particularly good-looking as far as such systems go, but this touchscreen all-in-one will definitely be a better fit for many bedrooms and sitting rooms than your average PC.

It has a 21.5in 1,920x1,080 touchscreen, which works brilliantly with Windows 8. Unfortunately, it's also very glossy and extremely prone to picking up greasy fingerprints. It's nice and bright, though, and produces fairly accurate colours, although contrast is a little poor. The multi-touch screen is responsive and hardy enough to stand up to even the frantic hammering we gave it when tapping away at the touchscreen game demos the PC comes with.

We were pleased to find the ET2220IUTI has both HDMI in and out ports, which means that you can both connect a second screen or a projector, and use the PC's integrated display with other input sources, such as a games console. There's also a built-in digital TV tuner and a copy of ArcSoft TV to use it with, so you can just plug the PC into your antenna and use it as a Freeview TV. It's a shame that Windows 8 no longer ships with excellent Media Center, which was built-into Windows 7 as standard.

Microsoft still offers Media Center as an optional download, but you'll have to pay £50 for it.

With its 21.5in screen, the ET2220IUTI’s large enough to make for a comfortable viewing experience in a bedroom or small living room. The ET2220IUTI’s home entertainment credentials are rounded out by a Blu-ray drive, so you can watch all the latest films at full HD quality.

The integrated speaker, positioned along the bottom of the screen is among the best we've ever heard on an all-in-one system, providing good quality music reproduction rather than simply being good enough for games or TV. It's better than many cheap dedicated speaker sets, but if you want to connect something a bit more serious, or use a headset for gaming, there are 3.5mm headphone and mic ports at the side of the PC.
