If any issue after mf's warranty, you have to throw them away all in one... as it is all-in-one.
You define the moment, then, the moment defines you.

Damn they're so nice..what brand is better with this same format ? Or should I just buy the non touch screen version that has a separate CPU
I wouldn't recommend all-in-ones at all. If you're looking for small footprint with a touchscreen, then do as fatestkid said. Small PC such as a Intel NUC or something in the miniITX size with a touchscreen monitor. Many smaller cases can even VESA mount to the back of monitors.

My HP 610-1130f AIO has been great.

I've always been a custom PC Build kinda guy, but my days for that is over. I just needed a PC for occasional photo editing use and personal use I don't want to use my work laptop for.

I upgraded the CPU from an i3 to an i5 2500k. I added an SSD plus a 2TB hdd for storing all my camera raw files. Also added 16gb sodimm ram. The thing flies and was way cheaper than an iMac which I originally wanted.

Desktop CPU and laptop ram in a small form factor that is pretty upgradable is pretty unbeatable at the price I paid (<$500 for the unit) + my upgrades. I'm sure I couldn't build a computer for cheaper. Even if I could it wouldn't have a nice form factor with 1 power wire and a clean desk.

AIOs as long as it meets your needs are great IMO and experience. Been rocking mine since Jan 2012, with windows 8.1 its fast and doesn't skip a beat.

Since your in the market for an AIO, check out the Lenivo A720 or A720, easy to repair and upgrade. The Asus ET series ones are also in the same boat. I don't think I'd ever recommend HP, it's hard to get by the amount of ***** they put out.

For AiO computers, I do prefer Asus and Lenovo. Recently they have done an amazing job with theirs. Asus's even comes with its own subwoofer.

I bought one of these for a relative a year ago. Had a RAM failure after 6 months, but was covered by HP

We had one of these. They get extremely hot and require you to constantly clear the vents using compressed air to keep going.

HP = Horse poop. They look great.

The Dell All in Ones are a much better design. A few of my clients have those.

My buddy actually ha an HP all in one and, I have to admit, it is pretty neat. You save a lot of space and, presumably, the specs aren't terrible.
Personally, though, I'd rather have a tower because in the event I want to upgrade or if something needs to be replaced, it can be done without compromising the entire system.

These slim line computers are known as "disposable" PCs. Once something like the power supply or anything else dies, you chuck it out since the parts are all proprietary and will cost more to repair than buying a new one !
Certain parts are, such as the mbd. Others, such as memory, HDD, and optical drive are standard and easily switched.

AIOs usually have an external power brick which should be easy to replace, though I've never had one fail on me, possibly because I use a decent surge protector, as everybody should.
12 months for condemning rape. 6 months for calling violent thugs "nasty". WTH? Is this IS?

Thanks this one looks like it has some great reviews as well

Hmm... I recognise the words. Not sure what's meant though. :lol:

Is that actually English?
