Doesn't look bad at all for professional use, and unlike most all in ones you can change out the processor and GPU.



Thoughts?

    I like it.



    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.

    Expensive - it says it starts at $1899 with a dual-core i3 and integrated graphics.



    Supports 1 external display where the iMac supports 2 and probably up to 4 with a Thunderbolt splitter.



    I love the serviceability aspect of it but all Apple has to do is move the hard drives to the base of the display.

    I'm really struck by how Apple like the video is. 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.

    Yeah, the base model is probably the least reasonable. 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.
