    Its only taken a few years for a proper iMac competitor to be released!!

    It looks quite decent IMHO.

    My guess would be, yes. It's the only reason I could think of to be able to push it back on your desk.

    Isn't it just to make it easy to upgrade? (Not that I can see anyone with an all in one wanting to upgrade quite that often that its actually useful...)

    If the only design goal you had in mind is ease of upgrade, surely just flipping up the display would do?

    According to the press release I've got here, it says "Tool-less chassis: You can easily add a hard drive, upgrade memory, or access the graphics card by snapping open the chassis to swap out parts" and there's no mention of any touch screen. That said, if it's designed for CAD and artists, then surely they'd be using graphics tablets and wouldn't want to sully their nice clean screen with greasy fingerprints?

    Aye, it even competes on price - i.e. high! (although I suppose a 27" "professional-quality" screen doesn't come cheap)

    The thing is that the HP Z1 base model is only using a Core i3 2120 and costs £1349,which makes the entry level iMac 27" look better value:

    http://store.apple.com/uk/browse/hom...ly/imac/select

    However,since the higher end models use Xeon E3 CPUs as standard and use Quadro cards they probably will be better than the higher end versions of the iMac 27" IMHO.

    I must admit I rather like it. Now if I can just get a case for it that's a worthy replacement for my 20" HDX , after having a 20" laptop so long I can't stomach a smaller screen hehe

    Okay that looks very very nice! Especially like how it opens to allow upgrades!

    I'm very tempted. I wouldn't be able to splash out easily myself, but this might be pretty good for work...now to explain to the department director.

    When did that change? Last 3 HP laptops I had were operating like my Dyson with Cyclone Tech. Can't say much about them now. One with gone MB, one with gone GPU other just sold before anything happened.

    Here's a mad thought ... maybe just those particular two were defective? Got a 6510b here, and while I prefer the old Dell I bought for myself, it runs relatively quiet, although anti-virus scanning makes the fan audibly spin up. But I'd rather have a fan operate for five minutes than cook the processor or mobo.

    Employer loyalty aside, I'll make the suggestion if they (HP) made stuff that always overheated then they wouldn't sell a lot. In which case they wouldn't have the market lead that they have at the moment (although the past two CEO's have been happy to pi** that away). Annoying that you've had a bad experience though...
