It appears that HP's considerable experience in server and Bladesystem design has created a solid entry into the AIO Workstation market. I'd prefer that it had 3 drive bays rather than 2 so that at a minimum a RAID-5 internal array could be configured. With the high end iMac becoming popular with graphic designers I could easily see a AIO Mac Pro setup built with Apple style and a step up in performance.

It seems like it's gradually dawning on everyone that the razor thin margin, commodity part race to the bottom business isn't the right business to be in.As with the UltraBook stuff, everyone wants a part of Apple's "story"-- well designed products that emphasize quality and ingenuity over cut-rate pricing. HP clearly wants some of that vibe-- for us to think of them as thoughtful wizards who spend their time dreaming up delightful customer experiences.Have no idea if it will work, but I can't blame them for trying.

With Xeons and Quadros though the prices don't look too bad, that's like a single processor Mac Pro with a 27" IPS screen. If you NEED a Xeon or Quadro the iMac doesn't compare, for everyone else the latter might make more sense.

Although the price is not too bad, like a single processor Mac Pro27 "IPS screen, if you need a Xeon or Quadro iMac does not than others, which may make more Xeon processors and Medeiros sense.
