Been using a netbook for most of my work over the past 3 years and it just doesn't do it for me anymore (that's what she said). I need a bigger screen and all-in-one desktops seem like the perfect solution for my needs as I'd like to save desk space and be free from clutter.

I can't decide between the three all-in-one desktops below. Would greatly appreciate it if anyone could point me in the best direction from here.

    I don't know to many people that have all-in-one computers.

    For me and my lifestyle I would suggest a laptop. I often grab mine to do some computer-stuff at a local bar... I mean restaurant, a friends place, Dunkin Donuts, etc. It works well for me. I can see that it might not be a fit for everyone.

    Let us know what you decide.

    Hmm, I found another all-in-one on eBay going for $600 AUD.

    Is this one a decent deal (considering specs and all) for the price?
