HP TouchSmart IQ506t

15 January 2009
  • Summary: We’ll sum up by repeating what we said about the first-generation TouchSmart: It would be a big mistake to make the IQ506t your one-and-only PC: It’s just not powerful enough for gaming, heavy-duty photo or video editing, or many other enthusiast applications. But it is an absolutely fabulous family computer and media center.
  • Pros: Awesome touch screen, tiny footprint, excellent value.
  • Cons: Too slow for hardcore gaming; TouchSmart applications are weak.

HP TouchSmart IQ506 Review

23 September 2008
  • Conclusion: So what do we think of the TouchSmart, other than bracing ourselves for flames from Apple fans understandably outraged by its combination of iMac, iPhone, and OS X influences? We think it fulfills the promise of last year's bulkier, less capable version, with touch technology you're likely to use almost daily instead of playing with for a few weeks before giving up on it in favor of the keyboard and mouse. We wish the 25.5-inch model cost less. We like it a lot.

HP TouchSmart IQ506 PC - The Full Review

Hardware Zone
14 June 2011
  • Conclusion: Without a doubt, HP's TouchSmart IQ506 is a worthy successor to its predecessor, the IQ770. Design wise, shrinking down the somewhat clunky (by the new standards) design of the IQ770 (which weighed at hefty 17kg) to a more streamlined form factor (of about 11kg) was an improvement that we liked a lot and something that HP has done remarkably well.

Praxis-Test: HP TouchSmart IQ506 (PC-System)

CHIP Online
16 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Faszination pur: Wer schon immer einen Rechner mit Touchscreen wollte, wird vom HP TouchSmart nicht enttäuscht. Zwar verzichtet der Hersteller auf das komfortable Multitouch, zeigt aber anhand der eigens entwickelten Software, dass ein Finger auch schon ausreicht. Wofür eignet sich der SmartTouch? Idealerweise hängen Sie sich das Gerät an die Wand und nutzen ihn als Media-Client. Videos, Diashows und Musik mit dem Finger als Eingabegerät – einfacher geht es kaum.
  • Pros: Toller Touchscreen, Große Festplatte, Schickes Design, Windows Vista 64-Bit
  • Cons: Recht teuer, Kein Multitouch

HP TouchSmart IQ506 PC

10 July 2008
  • Summary: Машина HP TouchSmart version 2.0 — заметный шаг вперед, по сравнению с предыдущей моделью HP. Она элегантнее, у нее более интуитивно понятный интерфейс и она быстрее загружается. Некоторые недостатки помешали нам вручить ей корону победителя.
  • Pros: Ненужных программ значительно меньше, чем у предыдущих машин HP. Улучшенный сенсорный интерфейс. 4-Гбайт ОЗУ. Инфракрасный пульт дистанционного управления в комплекте. Все аксессуары беспроводные. Тюнер ATSC/HDTV.
  • Cons: Нет накопителя Blu-ray. Всего лишь 60-дневная подписка на обновление Internet Security. Заторможенная реакция Windows Media Center. 64-разрядная Vista может быть несовместимой с вашим аппаратным и программным обеспечением. По-прежнему сопровождается ненужными программами. У мыши нет кнопки возврата назад. На клавиатуре нет указательного устройства. Слабая производительность на 3D-задачах.
