Thank you for the update Isantop.
I guess in addition to this updated rant, may i add;
9) Keep the AiO a "freestanding" monitor (iMac & Sony), not a propped up picture frame (dell, lenovo, acer, etc). It's a personal thing, I like my monitor low but not permanently canted toward the ceiling
10) No touchscreen, no 3D!!!
11) Be stable with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS c/w standard and custom performance kernelActually Sony has a good series, accept for no 27'' 2560x1600, touchscreen, optical drive, and too many i7 options. People that want a simple but fast AiO aren't interested in shelling out another Grand for a crackin' processor. They have 4-i7 options and 2-i3/i5, they should have weighted towards the i3/i5 chip. But maybe they got the i7 chips on cheap because there is a huge stock pile.
I have an i3 desktop now with an SSD that crackin and would go for an i5 option. Though it is kind of sh*tty that there is no hyper-threading in the i5 chip.
Is there a preliminary time line for system76 to release an AiO deskstop? Can you provide any information on what your currently looking at? What type of chassis, price point, options (Barebone). Is there going to be a entire series? Gamer option?
Ready to dump my big ugly honkin' tower for something lighter and tighter.
