Perfect for design professionals and the winner of the desktop all-in-one beauty pageant, the iMac sports Quad-Core Intel Core i5 silicon, a 1TB hard drive, Apple's wireless Magic Mouse and an ultrathin wireless keyboard.
With IT departments focused on carefully monitoring budgets during a time of economic uncertainty for businesses of all sizes, the market for desktop all-in-one (AiO) computers is becoming more competitive, with OEMs like Hewlett-Packard and Dell, as well as new offerings from Vizio (better known forĀ its high-definition televisions) upping the ante when it comes to processing power, unified communications and collaboration capabilities, and bigger, more brilliant displays. One of the main advantages to buying an AiO desktop is, of course, its compact design, which allows it to be deployed in areas where space is tight. This design functionality also lends itself to some of the slickest, sexiest desktops on the market, ditching bulky hardware and leaning toward ever-thinner casings and keyboards. Many of these AiOs also offer the latest in touch-screen technology. If your company or IT department is looking to invest in AiO desktops, here's a look at 10 that could boost your business without breaking your budget.
