Summary: this is cheap pC, sharp looking computer, but the webcam it keeps shutting down and you have to restart it couple times sometimes to get it to connect.. beside that you get what you pay for. for this price you can't expect much more than the way this PC function.
Summary: I purchased HP Touch Smart IQ526 in June 2009. While the computer was nice, the wireless HP keyboard and mouse were disasters. The keyboard would freeze, the mouse would freeze, I needed to pull out the transducer to get the HP keyboard working again. HP sent 2 new keyboards, mouses and transducers, still the problem persisted. Not only were the keyboards not functional, the one of the keys actually came off!!
Summary: Found everything about this product to be straightforward, simple, and easy to setup. I particularly love that it is one piece as well as all-in-one. i don't have a lot of space to put a computer and this one fits all my needs perfectly. Great product.
Summary: This computer is working well. I was skeptical about buying it, since my laptop was not even a year old, but I'm glad I made the change. It's very fast - almost instant on. The Touchsmart feature is not too practical. The 22" screen is more comfortable several feet away. Can't reach the screen, so I optimized it for the mouse. I did look at the Touchsmart software and found it of little interest. The large screen is very practical for my needs, though.
Summary: I would like first to commend Amazon for great customer service. The computer itself is a great computer. I enjoy especially the touch screen. However, the windows vista 64 bit is a bit inconvenient with the fact that their is several softwares it is uncompatible with.
Summary: I own the IQ 816 with blu-ray. The same as this system otherwise. Upgraded to Windows 7 Professional. I was required to reformat the drive. HP was unwilling to provide a replacement copy of Touchsmart or DVD Corel which is the blu-ray driver and more. I was told by HP tech that this computer was designed for Vista and not Windows 7. I could restore Vista or do without this software and Windows 7. You might be able to upgrade to Windows 7 Home edition.
