BenQ's new nScreen i91 laptop is shaping up to be a cut-price alternative to Apple's iMac.

The slimline, all-in-one desktop has just launched in the Far East, and sports much of the features of Apple's iconic desktop (except for Mac OS X, of course) in a slightly smaller package.

According to Register Hardware, the nScreen is based around AMD's Yukon platform, and boasts a 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of memory and, depending on the buyer's preference, 4GB-16GB of solid state storage or between 120GB and 250GB of hard drive storage. Connectivity includes Wi-Fi, Ethernet and two USB 2.0 ports. OS-wise, you can choose either Windows XP Home or Linux.

The screen is an 18.5-inch widescreen panel, and the entire kit and caboodle measures 454 x 361 x 61.4mm. There's no European release date or price info yet.
