Noticed many comments from uninformed dinosaurs before I added this comment. They seem to not understand 'silent' PCs.
Check the Youtube videos, "Windows 8 all in one pc" ...
specically ... "Sony VAIO Tap 20 Unveiled" and "HP Envy 23 TouchSmart All-In-One PC - Windows 8".
I just bought, brand-name at a local auction a HP AIO (21INCH, i7, 8gb-DDR3, 64gb SSD, 500gb HDD, w7-Enterprise, but no warranty - refurbished) for about $700 US. It was one of about 20 similar HP items on sale.
It has HDMI-out, VGA-in/out, 4x USB 3, ETC. Plus keyboard, mouse. I think it might have had the bad Intel i7 chips which Intel released, but these needed replacement. Similar to my HP Pavilion DV7. So it the screen is not satisfactory, and/ or wifi cable it to another screen !!
The new W8 AIOs allow table-top horizontal lay-out, with ten finger touch. So it can be a full organ/ piano/ synthesizer player (see the above You-tubes).
I've seen other Youtubes showing them as a two-player game console: chess, table tennis, etc. AIO's will replace desktops. They have industry replacable / upgradable components inside. My wife (Hong Kong born) is very happy with her new 'toy'.
