So today I spent most my afternoon fixing the laptop and desktop computers I got, I gave the laptop a new install of Windows 7 and needs the space bar key replacing - Anyone know if ASUS can send me a replacement key? The desktop got some more ram and will be getting a new HDD once I get the part I need and will getting windows 7 and I might keep XP I am not sure yet..

iMac G4. They're all but useless now, since apple switched to x86 a long time back. The design was pretty interesting though.

Personally, I hate the idea of these all in one things. You basically end up with all the downsides of both a laptop and a desktop, without really gaining anything besides "It looks cool." You can't even use the monitor again when you replace the computer. Idk, just seems dumb to me.

Most likely you will only be able to order the whole keyboard and not individual keys. I think it would be cost prohibitive for them to ship just 1 key. Not to mention all the hassle they would have to deal with of shipping 1 or 2 keys to people.

Nothing past OS 10.5 iirc. Also you will find pretty much no software compatibility nowadays.
