VERDICT
Clearly above average. Only a couple of issues keep this from being best in class.

based on the following sites

PROS

  • The 4K display is terrific; the 3,840 x 2,160 pixel resolution provides plenty of desktop space and a sharp screen.
  • High performance Intel CPUs and discreet graphics by Nvidia make the Z240IC a great overall performer and suitable for mainstream gaming.
  • The Zen AiO Pro supports USB Type-C, providing some measure of future-proofing for upcoming peripherals.

CONS

  • All the ports are located in the rear of the unit. This is fine for devices that are connected all the time, but a hassle for devices that aren't.
  • Its gorgeous display can't be used with other devices due to the lack of an HDMI-in port.
  • The bundled keyboard and mouse feel cheap and don't match the premium look and feel of the Z240IC.
