We have a disgruntled poster visiting all the forums down talking Dell and anything else that doesn't conform to what he/she thinks is the correct computer to buy/build.

Current AIOs take basically nearly the same foot print (desk space) as a monitor. As to the optical drive failing, if it happens the OP can simply purchase a external for $20 (or less). No big deal. IMHO optical drives are heading in the direction as floppy drives. A majority of people now have laptops and they are using them as desktop replacements. A AIO is a step up as it has numerous more ports.

I was looking at the Dell documentation and it clearly showed just one screw.

Although, you are correct on this model:

And I did totally forget about the stand.

Umm, yeah, it's one screw after you remove the 15 others to get to it.
