The phrase "complete rip-off" comes to mind

LOL at that price. I could build a sweet small form factor gaming PC and get a good 27" screen with hundreds to spare.

So, basically it's an over-priced, over-sized notebook?

I really don't understand how products like these sell. It's got all of the disadvantages of a laptop/notebook, but none of the advantages. Why not just buy a similarly spec'd laptop and then a monitor for for when you want to use it on a desk?

Wow, the 27 inch imac is substantially better for the money. Suprised to say this but the top end imac costs only slightly more and you get a 675mx, and a 1440p screen.

Rip off like the other guy said, build one for £800 with more power and save half your money!

When Apple can win a value comparison with one of their poor value products, you know that the other guy's product is more than a mere rip-off, but close to being outright robbery, lol.

And can't play most games. No thank you.

At the right price this machine would be very interesting, but as many users pointed out, it's just a laptop without kb/mouse and battery.

Besides, you can get barebones in this form factor (AIW) from other companies (like Gigabyte), and they use a micro-ITX mainboard, allowing for easy upgrade using cheaper an widely available desktop parts.

OSX has WINE-like programs. I bet that we could get most modern Windows games to run on it just fine even if we didn't want to simply install Windows on it for dual-boot or complete replacement.

Vlad, you can Bootcamp the iMac and play any game you want. The iMac has 1TB of storage in it if you get the regular, non SSD drives, so there is plenty of room for a Windows partition. The iMac is the best deal in All-In-Ones at the moment, with better parts than most of the competition for comparable prices, and a sexy look to boot.

Dude, you really don't know what you're talking about. You would have been better off keeping your yap shut rather than opening it and letting us know what a fool you are.

Ok, that was harsh; withdrawn.

Definitely not. Been using Microsoft products since DOS. Regardless of what anyone thinks of Apple and their products and practices, you still cannot deny that at the moment, the iMacs are among the best offerings the All-In-One market has. I have researched other manufacturers and their products, and they all come in with higher price points with comparable hardware and specifications. Feel free to prove me wrong.

These types of expensive all-in-one gaming systems are for people with more money than sense.

Wow! What an over-priced, low spec'd pc. The 27" IMac is a masterpiece of engineering and is cheaper, though not touch screen. The dell U2711 is not touch either but looks equally amazing if you just HAVE to run windows. Touch screen on a desktop just doesn't make sense.

Oh hell no, I'll take a 27" iMac any day over this. Bootcamp the thing if I want to play the selection of games for Windows. But since STEAM is running just fine on OS X now, no need to infect the MAC with Windows spyware.

MSI needs to revise their pricing estimate down about $800 - then they may have something. The iMac OWNS this product/price/performance location.

Even if it was a grand... I'd not buy ANY 27" all in one with only a 1080p screen, 1440p is barely enough res for 27".
