Lenovo is expected to surpass Apple in 2012
While Apple seems to be doing well in the mobile department with its iPhone and iPad devices, a recent report shows that the tech giant is also seeing some successful sales numbers with its
all-in-one iMac desktop
According to DisplaySearch, a California-based research firm, Apple is ahead of the all-in-one PC game accounting for 32.9 percent of shipments in the third quarter. Lenovo followed with 22.7 percent of all-in-one sales in the third quarter, and Hewlett-Packard (HP) fell in third place with 21.4 percent.
The all-in-one PC market grew 39 percent to 14.5 million units globally last year. According to Chris Connery of DisplaySearch, all-in-ones are an area of the desktop market that will continue growing, and tech companies should focus on them.
DisplaySearch said the all-in-one market could grow to 23.3 million units by 2014.
While Apple's iMac has nearly a third of the all-in-one market, this isn't expected to last long. According to
, 2012 will put Lenovo in first place while Apple slides to second. Apple's share is expected to fall to 24 percent with 3.8 million iMac sales while Lenovo is expected to sell 4 million all-in-one units this year.
HP is also looking to do some catching up by
releasing some new members
to its all-in-one family. For instance, HP will sell the HP Omni all-in-one PC starting January 8. The HP Omni starts at $1,200 and offers a 27-inch screen, Beats Audio technology, HDMI HD TV connection, optional Blu-ray disc drive and more.

The only thing that I lament about when I think about replacing my wife's iMac is the screen. It's a great screen and it seems like a total waste to pitch it just because some other pricey part kicked the bucket.

It's a waste only if you decide to replace the iMac with something else that isn't an iMac, and in that case you just buy a separate (hopefully IPS) monitor again. When I sold my 24" and upgraded to a 27", not only did I get a good amount for the old iMac but the display upgrade was
. I also use it as the primary display for my PC, it is fantastic.
