Because like I already stated, I wanted an all-in-one 23" monitor for space reasons. And due to BOTH hardware and software issues (again stated above ) I've decided to hold off buying again until there's something else out there that's worth the plunge !

Ok, lol, an all-in-one is a Personal Computer that is "strapped" to the back of a monitor -- all of the PC's components are back there instead of in a separate enclosure. An all-in-one is like a mutant laptop with a separate keyboard.

Thumbs up Exactly

And it is a very nice look without the BIG box always in the way with a regular desktop. Unfortunately I don't do laptops due to their small size for both reading and typing !

Most people leave their desktops on the floor by their feet.
My point is that if you simply need table space and a big display, an all-in-one is not the only solution.
