Excerpt: HP once built its TouchSmart line using notebook components because they required much less active cooling. Limiting the number of fans inside the machine made it quieter. This TouchSmart not only uses a desktop CPU—Intel’s low-power Core i7-2600S, running at a stock 2.8GHz—but HP has also packed a discrete GPU inside this TouchSmart’s chassis.
Pros: Magic Canvas UI; fast CPU (for an all-in-one); discrete GPU; lots of memory.
Cons: Poorly placed display input switch; 5,400rpm hard drive.
