Asus Transformer AIO vs Apple iMac 21.5-inch vs Samsung Series 7 All-in-one:Who is the Boss?

 W.A.Khan,                                                                                                                                                 Asus Transformer AIO                                                                                                                               The Asus Transformer AIO delivers a fast Windows 8 all-in-one, a giant Android tablet, and an effective platform for using them in tandem.
But, Remote desktop technology makes using Windows 8 in tablet mode unreliable, and you might prefer to wait to buy until later this year when the category has matured.
The bottom line: You'd be smart to wait and see how the market develops, but Asus has used the freedom of the still-forming all-in-one/tablet hybrid category to create a compelling Windows 8/Android device in the Transformer AIO.

Price:$1,299.00                                                                                                                                           VS                                                                                                                                                            Apple iMac 21.5-inch                                                                                                                               Apple's attention to detail extends to the 21.5-inch version of its thin-looking Apple iMac.
But, Windows-based all-in-one PCs offer tough hardware competition in the sub-$1,400 price range.
The bottom line: The 21.5-inch iMac will be a compelling lower-cost all-in-one for Mac loyalists, but you can get more capabilities from similarly priced Windows all-in-ones.

But, Samsung sacrificed performance to keep the price down, and a gesture recognition feature is best left ignored.
The bottom line: The Samsung Series 7 isn't the fastest, or the most fully featured midrange all-in-one, but casual PC users should consider it for its affordability and overall polish.
