All in one computers

Does anyone have one of the all in one computers? If so, how do you like it?

I have one at work. I like it better than the desktop with the bulky tower. It takes up a lot less space, and it's got enough power to run some serious memory hogging programs (MS Publisher, Photoshop and AutoCad)

Hope that helps.

I have an iMac. And it's amazing!! Makes no sound, I leave it on ALL THE TIME, and it's holding all my pics without getting bogged down. I'll never get another PC.

I've got the Samsung 700A3B all-in-one, with a 23" screen, and I love it! It is amazing, and I sure don't miss that big, bulky tower!
Two things:
1) If you get one, you might want to make sure it has a slot for a CD/DVD for games, movies, etc. if that's important to you. (it was to me!)
2) Make sure you get one with a screen that tilts. Depending on the angel of incoming light, I tilt mine every day.

Hope this helps.

It depends on what you plan to do with it.

If all you do is surf the web, print stuff out, etc, an all-in-one is great.

If you do serious gaming, use graphic-heavy programs, etc, you will need a tower.

I'm not sure if all-in-one's can be upgraded or anything so that might be something to look into if you would even consider putting in a different graphics card, memory, etc.

I second this. We love our iMac! It was our last piece in our plan to leave Dell behind. We even run Windows 7 on it, as well as OSX. - Suzanne

Autocad alone is a beast so that's pretty impressive. My husband needed to get a laptop for school that could hold and run autocad and we needed to spend a pretty penny as far as laptops go to get something that would handle it and still allow him to game etc.

I have an all in one Mac and love it. We have had it for 4 years and never had a single issue.

Due to some family reasons, we have had some times the computer needed to be moved around the house some. Having the all in one made it so easy. I know a laptop is portable like that, but we needed a desk top.

Owned a HP laptop once. Now no matter what great deal I see on HP I move right on. They had the worst customer service of any company I have ever dealt with. Will be replacing my old faithful Gateway in next month or so. Trying to sell my self on a Mac Air!!!

Unless you are pressed for space look towards the tower.

The big difference between the two? $$$$$$$$$$

Like with like innards they will do the same thing.

Not sure what an all in one computer is. If you are talking about something like an iMac, I have one of those and absolutely love it. Fits in a small area and works awesome.
