PRODUCT INTRODUCTION



We have to face it, we live in a multifunctional world. The days of one device serving one purpose have been gone for over a year now. We get up in the morning and make our coffee in our combo coffee waffle maker, grab our charged digital movie camera cellular phone and our Blackberry and pop into our concrete jungle SUV that can double as a offroad wilderness dominator. Everything today is being marketed as be multifunctional and for good reason. The consumer is getting smarter and the more functionality they can squeeze into one purchase the better.



This is the perfect way for you the consumer to understand what I will be reviewing today. The All in Wonder family of multifunctional multimedia videocards are the dictionary definition of value when it comes to your next videocard upgrade. As you will see, this card not only brings great gaming to your desktop, but also offers a whole bouquet of other features to turn you into a Wonder user once and for all. I have been converted for over two years now and once you purchase this product, you will never EVER go back to just a standard videocard.


You will see again why in the upcoming pages.
