They are basically designed for those who do not want something that looks
like a computer in their living room. Generally not very flexible, expensive
and only worth paying for if you want something neat and tidy.

Hi,

AN all in one PC is a machine which consists of the monitor with the rest of
the periferals (motherboard, hard drive, cards etc) in the monitor.  The
iMac was the original design that used this approach, but there are a lot of
other PC manufacturers that are now doing this.

I have experience with some of the Dell models, they work typically like any
other PC.  One major issue is that most of them have touch screens, and if
you get anywhere near the monitor, it will activate the touch function and
move the focus away to that.  These can be disabled, and I would recommend
doing this before use.

Most of them have smaller wireless keyboards with a laptop style layout.

You tend to pay overall more for the all in one machines than buying the
components separately.

Thanks.
Andrew.

Sorry but what is an all in one PC? I think of this as a laptop.
