The Best All-In-One PCs: VIZIO 27-Inch All-In-One Touch PC
The all-in-one desktop PC is an interesting beast. It has gone from being the only game in town (think Commodore Pet/Apple III/TRS-80) to a tiny niche (the original Apple iMac) in a sea of tower PCs, to today, where the All-in-One PC is replacing the tower PC as the form factor you picture in your head when you hear the phrase "desktop computer."
The Apple iMac's surge in popularity during the late 1990s and 2000s caused all the other PC manufacturers to reevaluate their desktop strategy. The death of the CRT monitor hastened the adoption rate, since LCD screens can be made so much thinner than CRTs (and consequently the computer itself becomes slimmer). The fact that LCD and IPS (InPlane Switching) screens use less power and don't emit radiation helped the LCD supplant the older CRT monitors. In any case, the high quality displays in all-in-one PCs are lighter and less bulky than CRTs, so you can place them on or above most desk surfaces.
