HP TouchSmart 610-1030a review: A touchscreen PC with great specifications and an excellent design
Good Gear Guide.au
4 December 2011
Summary: The HP TouchSmart 610-1030a has a new design that allows it to sit almost horizontal on a desk so that you can use its touchscreen a little more comfortably. However, it's only a two-point touchscreen and it's quite reflective.
Pros: Excellent design, good configuration and performance, lots of features
Cons: Screen accuracy not great, only two simultaneous touch inputs, reflective screen
Excerpt: HP's TouchSmart 610-1030uk looks rather generic, but there's plenty to set this modern touchscreen all-in-one apart from the crowd, with a big 23in touchscreen, USB3 ports and a Blu-ray drive.
