    The Viglen Omino is quite good. Speedy and reliable machines. The only problems that I've come across are:

    1. The power button can get pushed into the case, requiring the case to be disassembled. If the button is pushed too far in, it needs an entire new front case unit.
    2. There is no microphone socket next to the headphone socket on the side of the unit.

    This was recently discussed here. I can highly reccomend the Dell Optiples 755 USFF with AIO 17" TFT.

    Recently purchased some with XP Pro / Core 2 Duo / 1Gb RAM / 160Gb HDD / DVD/CDRW / 3Y NBD Warranty / 17" AIO Ultrasharp Monitor for 430.00

    We sell them here SCL AIO, it is the same chassis as the Viglen as already mentioned above. If you need a quote for a specific specification just drop me a PM or use the request aquote on the website.

    I've just got a quote from European Electronique for the HP Compaq Business Desktop DC7800 (Core 2 Duo E6550, 2GB (2x1GB) RAM, 80GB SATA HDD, DVD, Vista Business, 3 Year warranty) for 410 + VAT. This screws on the back of the HP L1908wi 19" TFT Monitor (143.21 + VAT) and stand (43 + VAT) to make an all-in-one style PC. So around 600 + VAT. This review seems to like them. Not bad, but I think we'll still be going for the Mac Mini and some cheap screens and a tube of Araldite for that all-in-one effect.

    It doesn't look like the same chasis. I think the SC AIO is the old style Omninio, which has now been updated.

    Its our picture that is out of date, we have used both models of the chassis the LP-772 is the one pictured that uses a standard 5.25" drive, the other model which we have been switching to is the LP-571 which takes a slimline optical drive and has a 3.5" bay and is the chassis Viglen use (they also have a different colour scheme to make it look unique).

    1. The power button can get pushed into the case, requiring the case to be disassembled. If the button is pushed too far in, it needs an entire new front case unit.
    I must admit we have never had a report of this, I take it the power button plastic gets one of its edges pushed under the surrounding casing I can see how this could occur.

    Yes, that's exactly what happens. And to be honest, it is quite regular in the ones we have. Some can be dislodged with a firm knock to the side but most need dismantling.

    It's called boot camp. There are other options ie parralels or fusion. But boot camp would probably be the better option.

    beat me to it crc-ict

    try stone

    i would try stone computers, as they tend to use intel motherboards, now whilst they are nothing exciting, unless you 'up the spec', i have always found intel 'dull and dependable', we have mostly stone pc's here and no major problems in past 4 years.

    I was about to suggest the same! Still the original iMac suggestion was made with tongue firmly in cheek!

    In all seriousness. The HP's I've seen look a bit on the balky side. The Sony Vaio's look nice, if not a little plastic.

    One solution is a HP or DELL 'Ultra Small Form Factor' unit (same size as the ThinClient's) that can be screwed/glued to the back of a regular TFT!

    Personally - I'd go for iMac/BootCamp then delete windows while no one is looking

    We've also ordered the 755 USFF, we tried the larger GX520's with the AIO and it was a pretty awful solution, quickly ditched that plan. The 755 USFF is much more suitable for piggybacking onto an AIO monitor.

    If money were no object the iMac (i know, very predicatable) or the Vaio which is very elegant if a little overpriced.

    I've seen an HP AIO solution similar to the dell 755 option that looked to be pretty neat.
