HP TouchSmart PC IQ770

18 July 2007
  • Summary: HP's new TouchSmart PC IQ770 is not as fast as Apple's iMac, nor does it have the same clean-lined elegance. It makes up for those problems with intuitive touch screen software you'll actually use and a comprehensive lineup of features. If you're looking for a home PC to organize your family's schedule, or serve up media in a kitchen or another small room, we know of no other system suited so well for the task.
  • Pros: Takes advantage of Windows Vista's touch screen capability with useful, easy-to-use software; combines with HP printers to become an at-home photo kiosk; contains all of the features you've come to expect from a modern digital media-oriented home PC.
  • Cons: Pokey performance for systems in its price range; fixed configuration; no HD optical drive option.

HP TouchSmart IQ770

  • Excerpt: When HP designed the TouchSmart IQ770, it must have been thinking of that old saying, “No matter where I serve my guests, it seems they like the kitchen best.” This PC is tailor made for serving up—and scarfing down—digital media in the kitchen. By combining the keyboard-free convenience and built-in display of a tablet PC with the I/O ports and features of a media-center desktop computer, the company has created a unique machine.
  • Pros: Well designed, great display, very good touch screen, relatively small footprint.
  • Cons: HP’s TouchSmart applications are so limited that they’re virtually worthless.

HP Touchsmart IQ770 review

1 May 2007
  • Summary: It’s been a long road to mainstream acceptance for the touchscreen. HP built one into a desktop PC called as far back as 1983, but since then it’s had to settle for a niche role on PDAs and tablet PCs. Like the Rasputin of tech, though, it’s returned in the guise of the Touchsmart. This HP is powered by Vista and is the first all-in-one you can navigate with your pinky. But is it an iMac-botherer? Not quite the icon First impressions suggest not.
