I like the idea of cheap alternatives. Lets face it, most people boot up their PC, browse the web, email a few people, and maybe do some light office apps, like Word or Excel. It doesn't take a high end system for that. Any cheap computer will do the task. Why pay more for a schnazzy case that gets most users zero additional functionality?

High end options are nice too, but for most people, and most businesses this is more than plenty computer.

These are not cheap. You can buy a notebook with the same specs, and duct tape it onto the back of a $100 23" monitor and you'd pay less than the cost of one of these ripoffs. Or better yet, dont duct tape the notebook and then you'd have a notebook too!

LOL, true but have you actually ever seen anyone do that?
