On Wednesday, Apple released a new entry-level iMac. It has a 1.4GHz Core i5 CPU (with Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz), 8GB of memory, a 500GB hard drive, an Intel HD Integrated Graphics 5000 chipset, and a 21.5-inch, 1920x1080 display. The cost? A mere $1099.
That may be chump change in Mac-Land, but in our world, you can get a lot of PC for that amount of money. Here are eight all-in-one desktops that cost about the same as this "entry-level" machine.
