    An NUC + good IPS + 256Gb msata + etc is still going to set you back by $8-900, and hardly an ideal choice if you are setting up an entire office worth of them. Worth considering if you are going to set up for home use though.

    That, and poeple looking at iMacs are typically looking for an AIO specifically. You can only really compare an AIO to other AIOs.

    You can technically VESA mount the NUC behind the monitor to turn into an AIO.

    True. Less elegant, but viable.

    its easy to move air with little fans and little noise if everything is in a tight compartment like the imac, seriously one 80mm fan could move enough air over everything in that case to have everything run at stock speeds.
