I'm starting to see a few more of these machines being offered. I believe that Apple has the market share in this segment, but funding is tight, so Mac is a no can do. And this isn't about which brand is better.
I know that from a hardware standpoint, allin1's don't make sense because you really can't do much (if any) tweaking/upgrading. But I think that more of these things will go mainstream.
A lot of people migrated from desktops to laptops. The main reason was portability. However, most people end up tethered to an electrical outlet anyway. Add to that the advent of the netbooks, that are for the most part just as capable, only in a smaller, lighter, longer battery life version.
Since the uniqueness of the laptop is starting to wane (for me anyways), and I don't want to go back to the cabling nightmare that was my last desktop (some 10 years ago), I'm thinking about trying one of those all in one's.
I looked at one over the weekend. Since the CPU is mounted to the back of the LCD, and I didn't see any seams, I wondering if:
-Possible to run a secondary monitor if the primary fails (assuming the port is there)?
-Possible to use the LCD with an external HD if the main CPU fails?
