    We have some 23 inch screen i3 processor end Lenovo all in ones. So far so good - apart from a few times the hard drives don't seem too happy and have needed to run check disk before booting.

    Although I've criticised Lenovo support recently (with good reason), we've put plenty of Lenovo all- in-ones in our schools suites. The M72z is a current popular one. The M92z is a larger screen and comes with 3 year warranty I think.

    I've used a few different AIOs. The ones from HP and Dell with the PC mounted on the back of the monitor are ok but they have an external PSU which takes up desk space and gives the kids something to unplug! Like others have said, the RM One is a very sturdy machine, sits very neat on the desk and there's nothing the kids can vandalise on them! Downside is they're overpriced.

    Viglen do a couple of ranges, the Omnios and Genie Ultra Small. The Genie Ultra Small computers are very similar to the Dell Optiplex USDT, but have a built in PSU!

    Stone Computers do a similar PC with a 'UniStand' allowing it to be mounted behind a monitor. I'm looking to replace ageing RM Ones with these when the time comes as they are much cheaper and come with 5 year NBD on site warranties.

    Oh, and all use standard parts, even the monitors can be swapped with any visa compatible ones.

    We are working with a special school that's looking at getting some touch monitors on gas arms so wheelchair users can access them. Our initial plan is to use a USFF PC mounted off the arm however quite a few of the current batch of All-In-Ones are available with a touch screen. Anyone have any experience of using 'consumer' touch panels in schools? I'd be interested to see how robust they are. Anyone seen any with a VESA mount?

    Has anyone used them or got any suggestions as I think these would be ideal for school, not really botherd weather its a touch screen or not.

    Not bad. Have you shopped around? VeryPC Flex / Novatech / Stone, spec for spec would come in over £100 less per unit than the Dell Quote above and with the Flex you can choose your monitor. I'd recommend a SFF chassis with monitor mount as you get desktop components too and the chance to upgrade in the future. Just be sure to spec a solution with a lockable cable tidy and front facing ports.
