no HDMI out on a lot of all in ones?

Was at bestbuy today and the guy told me that they only had one out of 10 different all in ones, that actually let you output to a tv or monitor via HDMI, and all the others were input only! WTF! Why would companies do this?

Because all-in-ones are aimed at users who intend to plug the thing in and never touch the wires again. Most don't need a secondary display.

just makes no friggin sense. Almost no one wants an input, but EVERYONE wants to hook up to a tv or monitor

Better to browse online than at Best Buy. The only thing you're really missing out on is a close inspection of the looks/build quality and the responsiveness of the touchscreen (if applicable). For those, you can compare a similar model in stores. Shopping online will give you more models to choose from, and probably more configuration options.
