    Little unfair to dock them for bloatware, even though we all hate it. Comes standard from everyone now, so unless you are going to take similar points off of every single laptop and desktop you review, there's no point in doing it here.

    We always mention bloatware in our system reviews. It's true that all of them pack some unwanted software but some manufacturers are worse than others.

    Also, Microsoft is pushing a program it calls "Signature Series" to highlight computers without any pre-loaded bloatware on its Microsoft stores, so it's obvious they think bloatware hinders the Windows experience and they want to improve this. Vizio is one of the few so far to embrace this no-bloatware program.

    When the first PC had came out they were all-in-one. Now they're going back to that idea again. HP first gen of all-in-one TS were problematic now it seems they're not so much. I would wait until Windows 8 comes out then see how well the setup and what you get with these TS system will be like. Again 4GB, 6GB is just not ideal anymore. 8GB should be the min if you going to buy a system. Dual and Quad cores just buzz words. Although Dual would be better. Next Gen of Intel another buzz word.

    Your kidding right?

    This kind of system will be in an office. 4GB of ram will be fine no one is going to be playing games on this thing or encoding video if you actually care about speed.

    The fact that it comes with 8GB is nice but you could drop to 4GB and for the usage this thing will see probably won't notice a difference.
     
  5. Is tower box dead for good?
     
  6. Am I the only one who dislikes the stand design of these? I much prefer the design of the stand that comes with the iMac and the Dell XPS One 27.
     
  7. I think for the average person, who only uses a browser and office, the tower is somewhat obsolete. A tower however is almost essential for the top end of gaming. Mobile graphics solutions pale compared to a fully fledged card.

    What about people that actually do work at home and need a workstation?
