Yeah, the first one I ran into 2-3 months ago was an HP, was only a couple months old and the interface between the computer and monitor was dead. Total black screen, and no way to remove any components without opening the monitor. It was around 4" thick, with audio, USB and DVD on the side. HDD was hidden inside and I didn't see any easy access.
I told the client to send it back.
This is the direction they'll all be going tho. Most businesses will jump at them as soon as they're off the boat, I'm sure. Great way to clean up the desk and get all those clunky wires out of the picture. The one I saw had built in media like speakers, microphone and camera.
If it had been out of warranty, I would have tackled it just to see the inside!
