I'm in two minds about all-in-ones. Are they easy to upgrade or tinker with? They do look very nice and tidy though.

If I could afford one I'd probably get it. Sadly everything computery here in Honduras is overpriced.

It has its place, but other than iMacs the all-in-one systems haven't taken off.

Apple had a good selling point for them; they were the least expensive consumer Macs at the time outside of the Mac-Mini which didn't offer any more expansion capabilities the iMac didn't have other than screen, keyboard and mouse. If you wanted a Mac and wanted it "cheap", these were your solutions and that helped them sell.

Non-Mac based systems have so many to choose from, a lot of people won't bother and instead go for the more powerful or expandable or flexible systems that usually cost as much or less than these all-in-ones

Maybe they'll find new life with the touch-centric operating systems but a lot will be based on cost and desire.

I would like to see one with Ubuntu running on it, though. I'm just not going to pony up my hard-earned cash for one.

I might look into them see what they are like, because i have bought all HP products for the last decade or so, and they have been fine for me. That, and i like the idea of a super compact desktop computer, i don't need to expand much, outside of say a wifi card. But what it comes down to, is the price. I'll probably stick with building my own compact (cube system to be used with a HDTV im working on) computer, and pay FAR less..

All-in-ones are hard to repair. You usually have to send them in.

I prefer to stick with a desktop, since you can swap parts in and out, and do things like upgrade graphics cards or monitors.

The touchscreen is probably the biggest selling point.

Intel recently came out with "tinker-friendly" all-in-one systems:
