I'm looking to buy a new All-in-One PC from the bottom end of the price range. Last night I went to my local Best Buy store and saw one there for $499.99. It was the least expensive model they had. So that immediately got me to wondering if there are any others that can be bought new for less than this. Does anyone know of a less expensive All-in-One PC than this?

Thank you

Cheapest one i found that was in stock was the Toshiba LX815-D1310 (PQQ20U-002003) which looks fairly decent depending on what your gonna use it for.

The biggest problem as I see it with a low end All In One computers is they are probably not touch screen.
Since new computers are coming with Windows 8 you want a touch screen. You will most likely not be happy with windows 8 and no touch screen.

Putting a older windows on a new model can be problematic. Finding drivers can be a problem.
You will likely lose tech support when they find out it isn't running the windows it shipped with.

Having said that I did see a non touch screen with a low end AMD CPU for $469 USA at staples.com, It is nothing I would want. I would want a touchscreen model with a 24inch screen and a Intel CPU.

Good Luck

Yes, I should have said I was intentionally looking for a model with a touch screen.
