Summary: I chose this pc, not for the i5 processor (which is good, but gets stretched with some of the video stuff I do, and falls short before the i7's on my 3 other pc's, but I chose it because it comes with Windows 7, not that disaster they call Windows 8, and overall, especially because of the installed OS, I'm quite pleased with it. It's my first "touch" pc (I have an ipod touch), and that feature is fun.
Summary: Pros: Sound is impressive, touchscreen is great, all-in-one works well for our space, and fast Cons: batterys in keyboard/mouse, no others. First off, I use this for home and kids. That means that we do not max out capacity with gaming, video editing etc. For our purposes this device is fast and capable. The only issue I had was during shipping the outer casing came apart around the DVD. DVDs jammed 50% of the time on eject.
Summary: I really like this computer! My last computer was a HP and it lasted for over 8 years, so I decided to stick with HP! Everything is built into the monitor - no more zillions of cords behind the computer! YAY! I have had it for 8 months now and keep finding more things it can do! Set-up was a breeze! I also watch TV through it with the media center - it's exceeded all my expectations. Video and image quality on the screen is brilliant!
Summary: I have had the HP TouchSmart for nearly a year now and have found it to be very reliable and I love the large screen. Unfortunately I rarely use the touch screen. I do find myself watching more videos and some TV on the TouchSmart because of the large screen and the good quality of the picture. The speakers are only adequate and I plan to purchase other speakers in the future.
Summary: I bought this computer for my father. The computer is very fast, and the all-in-one design saves a lot of space on his desk. The keyboard and mouse are good, but nothing spectacular. He was replacing an iMac running Windows via Parallels, and was very pleased with the performance boost obtained from having only one OS running at a time. The only negative comment I have about it is the touchscreen.
