Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "HP, the worlds biggest PC vendor as of 2012, has today launched a brand new all-in-one PC running Ubuntu. But the real 'wow' factor comes from its pricing. At just GBP 349 HP have pitched the PC well within the reach of your average consumer. A similar, though not identical, model is also available with Windows 8 priced at GBP 499."

For a desktop system

The specs are pretty damn anemic. An E2-1200? Really? A netbook CPU in a desktop?

If you are going to ripoff the iMac you may as well try and compete with it. Give it at least a 1920x1080 screen, a quad or octo core AMD CPU and an option for either the HD7970m or GTX680MX MXM GPUs so you can still have good gaming capability in side of the space and heat constraints of an all in one.

For the money I'm sure I can beat this thing with an off the shelf ITX system that I can strap to the back of any screen with a VESA mount.
