HP TouchSmart 600 Desktop PC | Review

By - September 10th, 2010

In terms of jumping on the touch screen market, HP was one of the first end-product makers to jump on board the new technology. In fact, more than two years ago, they were the first to market a touch-based all-in-one PC. As such, given that HP has had a head start in dealing with the touch screen PC market, it has managed to refine the TouchSmart 600 based on real market feed back. Especially now that Windows 7 is available, the new operating system also helps to bring in more compelling and entertaining features for the multi-touch market.

Overall Specs
The new TouchSmart 600 features the planet’s fastest processor, the new Intel Core i7-720QM processor, which runs at 1.60GHz, up to 2.8GHz. It features a slim, 23″ BrightView multi-touch widescreen, and runs on Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium. It comes with 6GB of DDR3 SDRAM, 1TB hard drive, and 1GB dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT230M graphics card to support gaming and multimedia processing needs. It features a Blu-ray player, HDTV tuner with remote, and HDMI game console connectivity so you can hook your Wii or PS3 up to the BrightView screen. It has Wireless LAN 802.11a/b/g/n and integrated Bluetooth for your connectivity needs, and of course, is equipped with a wireless keyboard and mouse.

One of its bigger attractions is the collection of Smart Touch applications such as Twitter, Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, and something cooks might like and make this perfect for the kitchen–the Recipe Box.
