The late 2012 iMac refreshes the design of its predecessors, removing the disc drive to help create an all-in-one with a display that's only .2-inches thick. It's the first device from Apple to feature a Fusion Drive, a combination of an SSD and an HDD that functions to the user as a single storage drive.

Description

Announced at CES 2012 and released in May, Lenovo's IdeaCentre A720 is an all-in-one with a 27-inch 1080p touchscreen display, powered by an Ivy Bridge processor, Nvidia GeForce graphics, and an optional hybrid hard drive/SSD set up.

The updated version of Dell's XPS One 27 is a 27-inch all-in-one desktop for Windows 8. It now features an integrated touchscreen, as well as a 2560 x 1440 quad-HD resolution powered by Ivy Bridge processors and up to 16GB of RAM. The graphics card can be upgraded to a Nvidia GeForce 640M for the gaming crowd.

Otherwise the same as Vizio's debut all-in-one, the 27-inch model has been updated with a touchscreen for Windows 8. It features the same sharp design as its predecessor, Intel's Ivy Bridge processors, and storage upgradeable to include a 32 GB SSD.
