Not really. Some are quite high-end (4K screens, I7 processors, 32GB RAM

Unless you can repair it and upgrade it yourself. But unfortunately many
AiOs are stuff which is glued together :-(

See above. In principle the ideal device is a 24-27" tablet with fast i7
processor, 32GB RAM or more, slot for SSD and slot for 2.5" HDD, 4K high
quality display (those with the new RGB LEDs), user upgradeable (user
can open it and replace/upgrade HDD, SSD and memory, weight as light
possible (< 2 or 3 Kg). With sort of a mounting bracket so that you can
fix it as a monior and take it off in case you want. Internal battery
not needed or perhaps small for for 5 minutes of autonomy, in case the
power gets cut off for some reason.
But we are quite far away from such as a device. Currently on the market
you find only behemoths with up to 16 Kg of weight.
