Apple iMac 21.5 vs SONY VAIO TAP 20 vs TOSHIBA LX835-D3380:Which is better?

Apple iMac 21.5-inch (November 2012)                                                                                                     The new 21.5-inch iMac is a lot slimmer than its predecessor, thanks to the elimination of the optical drive (the DVD based SuperDrive), as well as new manufacturing techniques like "friction-stir welding. Apple's attention to detail extends to the 21.5-inch version of its thin-looking Apple iMac.
But,The new Apple SuperDrive is also very thin, and has the single USB cable built into the unit. This also works to power the SuperDrive so there’s no need for a separate power adaptor. Windows-based all-in-one PCs offer tough hardware competition in the sub-$1,400 price range.
The bottom line:The new 21.5in Apple iMac (2012) delivers in all the ways we’ve come to expect iMacs to. It’s new super slim design is streaks ahead of the competition, as is the machine’s build quality. The 21.5-inch iMac will be a compelling lower-cost all-in-one for Mac loyalists, but you can get more capabilities from similarly priced Windows all-in-ones.

VS                                                                                                                                                       SONY VAIO TAP 20                                                                                                                                 The Tap 20 comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse for when you want to get serious. The keyboard is all-plastic but has a solid, well defined action and simple black styling to match front of the main unit.By slapping a battery inside a 20-inch touch-screen all-in-one to make the Sony Vaio Tap 20, the company has given birth to a new PC category with great potential in tech-savvy homes.
But, its battery is, again, a gimmick. And at US$999.99, even with its power and with its battery, we feel it's a little over-priced against non-all-in-one computers. The touch screen has some frustrating drag, and Sony made a few missteps among some otherwise reasonable sacrifices for portability and price.
The bottom line:The first Windows 8 all-in-one with a touch screen and integrated battery provides fun for the whole family. A compelling experiment in tablet-desktop hybridization, the Sony Vaio Tap 20 is a great fit for home tech enthusiasts willing to try something new.

But,Utilitarian styling. No bass in speakers. No Blu-ray. Uses external power brick. Majority of USB ports are USB 2.0. Toshiba played it safe with this system, offering few interesting features to go with the new operating system.
The bottom line:The Toshiba LX835-D3380 zags toward performance, providing muscle for more than just passive entertainment. Look no further than the Toshiba LX835-D3380 if you want a comfortable, speedy all-in-one on which to learn Windows 8.
