All in ones are decent if you don't want to buy a seperate monitor. Usually they aren't upgradeable so they will age out faster then a traditional desktop and they're also usually using mobile parts, meaning they're less powerful, but theyre still good pcs for people short on space and not doing intensive things


All in ones are more expensive than Desktops to repair. Even within Desktops you'll be better off avoiding the Small Form Factor ones as they are relatively more expensive to repair. AIOs and SFF desktops use parts used in laptops to achieve compact size, hence the higher repair costs. If you aren't facing space constraints, you'll probably should go in for a regular desktop. Do remember to buy manufacturers extended warranty/support. Something like 1 year's standard warranty and then 3 years extra. It should take care of things in case some issues do pop up later on.
