    It is not winning any fashion awards, that is for sure. If you hang it on the wall you better have a wide hallway...;) - I wonder where they drop the price at on it.

    Wow. I'm stunned. It looks like a clunky kiosk computer for a museum. I love the company's motto "innovation with style." LOL

    my thoughts exactly 'ewww' indeed.

    and here was me thinking the point of the imac was that it was thin (& good looking) - guess they've only heard of function & not form...

    pretty naff function at that

    FWIW - My IT guys need serial ports to program security and communications systems. They need the low baud rate that you can get only through a serial port. Serial port to usb adapters do not work for low baud purposes. I laugh at serial ports as well but they do have their place.

    How is it you can only move it 170 degrees on the stand? surely you can place the thing where ever you want... :rolleyes: ;)

    Seeing products like this always puts me in mind of Coupland's characters describing, in "Microserfs", a Russian yard sale and how decades of communism meant they could never get it right.

    I bet in some darkened conference room somewhere, a bunch of suits sat down...

    A - "You seen that iMac thing? Very popular!"
    B - "Indeed! We should do that! But as a PC!"
    C - "We can use dual core chips, integrated graphics, a cool screen..."
    B - "And we can do the VESA mount thing too. I know a guy who can get us the specs."
    D - "HOLY CRAP, GUYS! HOW ARE WE GOING TO FIT IN A FULL-SIZE CD DRIVE, TWO TYPE-3 PCMCIA SLOTS AND THE PARALLEL PORT???"
    A - "Argh!"
    B - "Argh!"
    C - "Let's just do it anyway! People only care about it being on a stand, right?"

    Of course, I am mistaken. That is definitely what it is.

    DABS has them for about £480, but I am not sure if that includes a CPU/RAM/HD and so on.
