Packing a Xeon quad-core processor, dual AMD FirePro graphics cards and a superfast PCIe SSD, can IT Pro tame this beast?

Apple iMac 21.5in (2012) review

Reviews 18 Jan, 2013

Apple's latest AiO features its Fusion drive, an 5mm-thin design and Intel Ivy Bridge power. Is it still the dream machine for power users or has it fallen behind the likes of the HP Z1?

Lenovo has squeezed the high-end Xeon processors and NVIDIA Quadro 600 graphics into a small-form-factor workstation. It makes for a powerful, but noisy machine.
