I've been thinking a lot about the idea of getting an iMac. Seems like a pretty nice all-in-one but I've been a Windows user for ever.
Is there any real decent iMac competitors in the PC market?
I've been building my own PC all my life, but the way I use computer these days I just don't need a full GPU (The only real downside I can see) and over the years dust mamagment seems to be my biggest problem and an all-in-one would help to eleveate that perticular problem.
It would just be harder to clear out the dust...
If you want an All-In-One Windows machine then you're going to HP or Dell. I'd not bother though, you're paying a premium for a machine that's built into the back of a monitor. You could get a cheap tower machine and a screen separate.
Even if you don't need a high end rig, I don't see the benefit of an all-in-one other than aesthetics and space saving. Get one of those slim PCs with a really nice monitor and save money. You will also have the benefit of not having to replace the entire setup if either the screen or the computer itself breaks.
@SniperXan: The Verge just did a rundown of all-in-one PCs with touchscreens, so you might want to check that out. I'd still recommend a small form factor PC though. If you have room to lay down a large textbook on or around your desk, then you have room for a small PC desktop.
Use your keyboard!
