Apple iMac 21.5-inch vs Asus ET2300INTI:Which is better?

 Apple iMac 21.5-inch (November 2012)                                                                                               The new 21.5-inch iMac is a lot slimmer than its predecessor, thanks to the elimination of the optical drive (the DVD based SuperDrive), as well as new manufacturing techniques like "friction-stir welding. Apple's attention to detail extends to the 21.5-inch version of its thin-looking Apple iMac.
But,The new Apple SuperDrive is also very thin, and has the single USB cable built into the unit. This also works to power the SuperDrive so there’s no need for a separate power adaptor. Windows-based all-in-one PCs offer tough hardware competition in the sub-$1,400 price range.
The bottom line:The new 21.5in Apple iMac (2012) delivers in all the ways we’ve come to expect iMacs to. It’s new super slim design is streaks ahead of the competition, as is the machine’s build quality. 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, The ET2300INTI no longer comes with a Blu-ray capable drive. Instead, it has to make do with a regular Super-combo DVD drive. With Blu-ray being the medium of choice amongst many movie enthusiasts, the lack of a Blu-ray capable drive really puts a damper on the ET2300INTI’s ambitions of being an all-round entertainment system.Commodity PC styling won't win this Asus system any design awards.
The bottom line:With its dazzling multi-touch display, solid performance, and abundance of ports, the Asus ET2300INTI is an all-in-one worthy of serious consideration. It's not the most attractive PC out there, but the Asus ET2300INTI has a broad array of features that will entice those looking for a mainstream Windows 8 all-in-one.
