I'd imagine so, can't be bothered to work out exactly how it all works but I've ordered one that way and saved nearly £200

I'm not going to vote either way, but these all-in-ones combine many of the disadvantages of a desktop with many of the disadvantages of a laptop. They are not portable, they can't be upgraded, and they are hard to fix if they go wrong.

So, as a computer, it stinks, but, as a piece of furniture to have around the house, it does look very stylish.

Hi, I have to disagree with this, I've not looked at the specs for this exact model, but I have a very old (8 years) imac 20" which I run my graphic design business from. They can be upgraded with extra Ram - it's easy to do. I love it, looks very sleek, and more importantly, it's lasted 8 years - not many PC's or laptops do that! It's not designed to be portable, it takes up much less space than a typical PC tower. I'm tempted to maybe look at the offer for a 2nd computer.

Well not really. A desktop isn't really made for travelling around with you, it's meant to be sat at a desk (hence the name desktop), which is where a laptop comes in. As far as portability goes, the AIO is the best portable desktop machine - single cable with the guts and screen all merged to one. Otherwise, you'd just buy a laptop.

Although, agreed on the reparability but if you have the time to strip them down and have the patience and care, you can repair these and do a decent job.

Fair enough. I'll just say that my (2007) screen went bang the other day. 5 minutes later, my desktop PC was up and running again with an even older screen I kept as a spare. The even older screen was lower spec, but I was able to get a new screen delivered within a day. The same applies to any other component that breaks.

I guess it's horses for courses, I value practicality above design, but I do appreciate that other people have different preferences.

​I agree with you, which is exactly why I have am Intel NUC PC attached to the back of my very thin AOC monitor via a VESA mount and can upgrade/change the RAM and SSD any time I want/need. All the benefits of an all in one and an easily upgradeable desktop. Perfect compromise!

I paid £899 for the next model up - quadcore 2.8GHz from Amazon just before the Brexit price rise. I think this base model was hovering around £749 then. The killer is the dog slow 5400rpm HD inside. This made this more sluggish than the 2010 era iMac it replaced.

There seems to be some talk about updated iMacs around March 2017. If you don't absolutely need one, I might be tempted to wait and hope that Apple has seen fit to put faster drives in without jacking up the price to the skies since these cannot easily be cracked open to replace parts.

Yes, all-in-ones are very much style over substance.
Still remember being asked to look at one which had broken: was a fairly stylish unit made by this Korean company, Averatec. Turned out the MXM graphics, a Geforce 8500GS, had gone bad due the infamous solder defect (thanks Nvidia for selling millions of parts with bad solder and then doing a runner!).
Looked into getting a replacement MXM card but it turns out that MXM is a rather poor standard (thanks again Nvidia for creating the 'standard'). In the end, we ended swapping out the HDD, CPU, RAM, etc. into a new case with motherboard. And I had the AiO casing sitting in my attic for years in the thinking maybe I could fix it somehow (did the Nvidia baking trick but that was only a temporary fix).
As added irony, the Averatec motherboard had an Intel 845M chipset with built-in graphics but the design had no way to enable it (thanks Averatec and Nvidia for that one).
In this case it was the graphics card but it could equally have been any of the proprietary parts in that AiO, and that's precisely why I don't recommend them. In fact, the often are even more unserviceable than laptops. Or at least compared to the only laptops I buy or recommend: business grade ones for which parts are readily available and easy to fit.

Plus they don't slow down over a couple of years like every windows machine I've ever owned without fail even after defeating and reinstalling OS etc.

I hate Apple as a greed machine however their macs are brilliant although expensive. Pay for what you get in this instance in my mind

And as for comparing specs to a windows machine when this OS runs so differently and more efficiently....

Very dear oh mo
