I am planning to upgrade my computer. I came across all-in-one desktop pcs somerime back. How good are they?

I am going to use it mainly edit my photographs, using Adobe lightroom and photoshop and mostly watch HD movies. Will the lenovo c240 suffice? Can I get some suggestions?

AIO computers are fine for light usage such as office and school work but they fall down when it comes to anything that requires demanding graphics quality such as heavy gaming and editing/rendering video, this is because of the low powered output that their PSUs have and the limited space inside the chassis for add on video cards (which also require a more powerful PSU).

The Lenovo C240 has very basic specifications and so I would avoid it, consider a good quality notebook or mid range desktop as an alternative.

I sold one of these a little while back, I thought it was great:

If you shop around you might be able to find something with a better graphics card. Even so, depending on how "serious" you want the PC to be about doing the editing work, it'll do it just fine.

A quick search on the Asus website for other models shows this:

Looks very nice. Have it configured with the Core i7 and 8GB RAM and it'd be a sweet little machine.
