Epson debuted its NX625 all-in-one printer Wednesday just in time for the back-to-school shopping season. The multifunction printer, scanner, and copier features built-in 802.11n wireless connectivity, mobile printing by way of Epson's iPrint app, a 2.5-inch color LCD screen, and a memory card reader so you don't have to deal with the hassle of a USB cord to print snapshot photos. We'll have more details in the full review coming soon, but the NX625 is shipping now for $150.
Apple's put a touch interface on so many of its other products, could an iMac be next?
If a patent application filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is any indication, the answer is possibly yes.

The hinge appears to allow the computer to alternate between a traditional vertical desktop configuration and a flat, iPad-like surface when rocked back on its hinge.

I'm a sucker for all-in-one desktops, and the Lenovo IdeaCentre A300 is one the slickest, sexiest models I've ever seen.
It features a 21.5-inch LCD mounted on a glossy white base, with an equally glossy white mouse and keyboard. To me the design says "kitchen PC," but it'll look good anywhere you put it.

I just can't let a month go by without spotlighting one of my all-time favorite peripherals: a Wi-Fi printer. Even better than that, a Wi-Fi multifunction printer. You haven't lived until you've scanned or printed a document without wires!
Buy.com has the Canon Pixma MX340 wireless all-in-one inkjet for $69.99 shipped. This model is new, not refurbished, and it offers a few perks you don't usually see at this price point.
For starters, it doesn't just print, scan, and copy; it also sends and receives faxes. (Believe it or not, some folks still … Read more
I've always been a sucker for all-in-one PCs. There's something uniquely appealing about a desktop that consists of a big screen, a keyboard, and nothing in between. (I know, I'm weird.)
While supplies last, TigerDirect has a refurbished Gateway ZX4800-02 all-in-one desktop for $529.97. Shipping will run you about $15 more.
Though fine for, say, a home office, this strikes me as a nearly perfect kitchen PC. It sports a 20-inch LCD--not too big, not too small--and it's a touch screen, meaning you can navigate Windows (in this case Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) multi-touch-style, … Read more
