I think Asus is on to a winner with these.

I feel that the iMac has always been Apple's strong point. Such a great, uncomplicated design. PCs had nothing to match. Now that these are coming along, undoubtedly at a better price-point than a Mac, Apple will finally have some competition.
I would consider these perfect for living-rooms and kids computers. Looks great. Hopefully cheap.

If I won lotto I would buy iMacs for all my family's households - so we can all be in touch (on different sides of the world). With products like these - I might actually be able to afford that dream without matching 5 numbers + 2 bonus. (once a few more hit the market and the prices drop at least)

Seems like it has a lot of cool features.

I like that it has an HDMI in, so you can connect a game console to it. I wish things like this were around when I was in college. I wonder what the panel resolution is though.

Kind of wish they offered a cheaper 22" version also with a Atom.

Mine is the in-laws. They have a 10 year old PC that barely works cause of all the pron & viruses downloaded by the old man. Even then it's hampered by the dial-up internet they are still using. :shadedshu

What I want is something easy to use and small to put in the lounge/living room. Unfortunately their place is like it's out of a bloody interior decoration magazine, so any computer will have to be good looking too. This type of thing might just fit the bill. :toast:

Then all I'd need to do would be to convince them to get broadband. :ohwell:
