I do not get where you got the info that the Lenovo B500 is not wall mountable, when in fact it is. Maybe you confused it with it's little sister the B305 which is not wall mountable. The B300 series also has a touch screen if that is a must (which I could care less about) but comes in a 21.5" screen instead of the 23" of the WALL MOUNTABLE B500. The pricing has also dropped since your review, as it is now pricesd at $1,000 for your configuration with an ATI grpahics card instead of Nvidia.

The wall-mount information comes in response to a fact-check email I sent to Lenovo's product reviews department. The pricing was accurate at the time the story was written (for the September print issue of the magazine). We link to PriceGrabber for current prices, which change all the time, but PriceGrabber doesn't always "grab" the right product.

I would like a sealed all in one for the kitchen or bathroom or even the kids rooms.. What I mean by sealed is just that, something my wife can spray with Windex to clean to the screen and lysol to clean the keyboard and mousing surface if there is one. An all-in-one that can handle a splash from a spilled cup of milk or coffee. An all-in-one that can handle a little water spray from the shower in the bathroom as well as the moisture. 

These things are going to have to be built for the riggers of life if we are to truly have an electronic household. Right now we aren't there yet, but there really is no reason for not being there right now. You can't expect an immigrant maid in some mansion somewhere to know not to spray that LCD TV or Computer Display with Windex. If an LCD is sprayed with windex the liquid will seep through the bezel and into the layers of material that make up the LCD and eat away at the liquid crystal or whatever that's in there, simply said it'll destroy your LCD displays and no company in their right mind is going to replace it free of charge without a ripoff extra warranty. 

So none of these all-in-ones would make it as a kitchen computer because a simple drop of liquid in the myriad of wrong places will destroy these things.

I know that the HP has a sheet of glass over its LCD, and according to the user manual, you can clean its screen using any household glass cleaner. I don't know if that's the case with the other three machines.

None!  All in one = proprietary.  Might as well get a laptop.
