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

The late 2012 VAIO L is nearly identical to its predecessor but is updated for Windows 8. The all-in-one features a TV tuner and discrete graphics from Nvidia, and it comes with a remote for using the PC as a TV.

The Samsung Series 7 All-In-Ones are PCs featuring Windows 8 and capacitive touchscreens with 10-point multitouch and 1080p resolution. The 23-inch Series 7 AIO comes with a dual-core Intel Core i5 processor paired with 6GB of RAM, integrated graphics, and 1TB of internal storage.

Acer says its Aspire 5600U as "the thinnest all-in-one available," measuring in at a mere 1.7 inches. The 23-inch AIO runs Windows 8 and features a 1080p display.
