    Hmm Ive always found Intel boards to be a nightmare. Good enough when they work but various random problems over the years with USB ports, random hangs, faulty NIC's flooding the network, stuff that I just never see with Dell.

    We've got some recent ones from Stone and again they work ok most of the time, but for instance the other day we couldnt Ghost one, it would continually hang as Ghost was loading

    I'm pretty sure ours have a built in microphone but will double check this.

    Here at Stone Computers we are using a very small foot print that attaches via a VESA mount bracket to your TFT.. it uses mobile technology, and its scalable to your requirements

    The manufacturer is FIC, based around the 945 chipset.

    The mic is built into the top of the unit, you can use an external mic but would have to connect it to the mainboard mic in on the rear/underside of the unit.

    Never appealed to me or for me to recommend an all-in-one solution. Reminds me of televisions with integrated VHS recorder or DVD player. One bit breaks and you lose the whole lot.

    It's still financially better for you to either purchase separate desktops and screens or alternatively notebooks. All in one desktops always seem expensive.

    Yeah, it is a bit of a major flaw if you ask me. Our microphone headsets have to be plugged in at the back, which is a major faff.
