Cool to the touch
The L Series offers a user-friendly multi-touch display and portal for simple, intuitive touch access to the web, photos, music and more.
Thanks to Edge Access™ technology, the touchable area extends to the display’s edge and incorporates touchable controls into the glass bezel. Easily access everyday shortcuts such as close, next, previous and zoom in one dedicated space. Surfing the web and want to head back to the last page? Simply drag your finger from right to left within the display’s black bezel.
Plus you can scroll, zoom and rotate by flicking, pinching, twisting and tapping.
• Tap and Double-tap – Touch and release to click. This is the most basic touch action. Can also double-tap to open files and folders.
• Drag – Touch and slide your finger on screen. Like dragging with a mouse, this moves icons around the desktop, moves windows, selects text (by dragging left or right), etc.
• Scroll – Drag up or down on the content (not the scrollbar!) of scrollable window to scroll.
• Zoom – Pinch two fingers together or apart to zoom in or out on a document
• Two-Finger Tap – simultaneously tapping with two fingers zooms in about the center of the gesture or restores to the default zoom – great for zooming in on hyperlinks.
• Rotate – Touch two spots on a digital photo and twist to rotate it just like a real photo.
• Flicks – Flick left or right to navigate back and forward in a browser or other apps.
• Press-and-hold – Hold your finger on screen for a moment and release after the animation to get a right-click.
Enhance the security of the Internet
VIP is a powerful, additional layer of security that links your PC to the online account, VPN or application that you select, decreasing the ability of thieves to access your accounts and information from another PC.25
Created jointly by industry leaders Intel®
and Symantec, and available through select member websites, VIP helps ensure that only you can access your online accounts and websites. When you log into any of the hundreds of VIP member websites, you’re asked to provide a one-time password that’s automatically generated by Intel® Identity Protection Technology. Since the password is random, and you get a new one each time you visit, it’s virtually impossible for cybercriminals to hijack your online identity.25
The best part? The identity protection technology is built into your new PC’s processor, so there’s no extra hardware to buy and no tokens or other “credentials” to lug around, forget, or lose. Protecting yourself online has never been easier.25
All-in-One space-saving design
Curb clutter in your workspace with a powerful computer that’s built into the back of a stunning 24” (diag.) LED backlit display. Compact, sleek and easy-to-use, the L Series is as practical as it is stylish. Its all-in-one design concept requires only a single power cord to keep you powered, connected and in-control to ensure you’ll never have a tangled mass of wires invading your foot space.
Plus, the L Series is wall mountable, meaning you can hang it on the wall of your bedroom, kitchen or office for the ultimate, space saving solution. And when not mounted to the wall, the L Series features an adjustable stand to help you get that “just right” viewing angle while also providing storage space for your wireless keyboard.
