Are you disappointed with the new iMac, this might be an option.

What's to be disappointed with? It's faster than the already fast 2011 models, has new options for BTO, and thinner/lighter.

Yes, Iím definitely disappointed so far from what I have heard and seen for specs and stuff.
Have always been a Mac user but now w/ the direction of the iMac is heading, not too sure anymore. Thinking of switching but I just hate Windows.
Some of the All-In-One PC out there are very tempting. This one looks great, same for the Vizio one!

Maybe someone can add more All In One options and their reviews?

While the low-end iMac has some flaws, it is actually a better proposition than the Asus. If you are going for a Windows AIO, the Vizio looks better than the Asus.

This is a Macforum so you'll have to wait a lot of complaints on Windows but the fact is that your computer will look like this in the future with touch screen and that you can choose if you want a keyboard entry. So Windows is on the right track just before the Mac OS. Its a small intermediate position now but soon its fully.

Don't really care for touchscreen though.

Smudging the beautiful screen?

That ASUS is just hideous looking. I'd take a iMac any day over that thing.

who needs a superdrive?


as far as touchscreen, yeah, no thanks. For tablets and phones ok, but for extended computer work its just a major pain in the ass. And that ASUS is ridiculous looking.

There are lots of options if you don't include OSX. Not really the point though if you want a non hackintosh Mac.

The GPU in that is worse than the one in the cheapest iMac, just like most other all in ones.

that is what gets me, why would I want this Asus or some other AIO machine out there when their specs are almost always worse.
