  1. Folks are increasingly drawn to the sleek, compact all-in-one systems sold by Apple, HP and others, according to DisplaySearch. Recent data from the firm shows that all-in-one computers grew by 57% from 2008 to 2009 -- a figure that is still on the rise. DisplaySearch forecasts that AIO PCs will jump from around 6.95 million units this year, to 12.79 million in 2015.

    Pity they're all so UGLY compared to the iMac. In my circle, we've bought 8 iMacs so far running Win 7 using bootcamp because they're just so well designed - from the uncluttered lines, to a tilt mechanism that is smooth, no squeaks, no reflective plastic. Paranoid they may be but they design stunning hardware - unlike the PC manufacturers who seem to pride themselves on building ugly hardware.

    I may stand alone on this one but I think the Asus system pictured above is attractive, and at the very least not ugly.

    Ah, but does the Asus have the cachet that screams "tragic overpriced hipster accessory" ? I think not

    What circle ?
    At a guess I'd have to say this if we're talking about eight iMac owners in the same vicinity.

    I don't really care for that design either, most monitors don't have anything coming down directly off the front of it, even LCD TVs mostly sit up with the stand supporting them from behind (heh). It just looks funny on that Asus.

    But I don't really care for the iMac's look either. Perhaps if they made them in a nice really dark grey or black...

    I don't think I'd like an all in one at this point anyway, like most of us here, I like to have reasonably easy access to the innards of my pc and the ability to swap out more than just the RAM and HD.

    From a TECH POV...it's crap... Standard components and such make upgrading and repairing easy. You buy one of these nifty things... or an apple...You're on your own!
