Excerpt: We used to get excited when HP would send us its latest all-in-one. Each new model seemed to add some cool innovation or new feature that no other manufacturer had.

Pros: IPS panel; HP’s Magic Canvas.

The upper limit here is a ginormous 27 inches, but you won’t get that slick touch user interface, and you’ll need to sacrifice performance to keep the price tag in the same $1,250 neighborhood occupied by the TouchSmart 520-1070 we reviewed in March. We’re not convinced those are good trade-offs.
Pros: Big display; HDMI input; HP’s Magic Canvas.
Cons: Absurd volume control in HDMI mode; integrated graphics; display lacks precision for critical applications.
