Tech Review: HP Touchsmart Desktop PC

First off: There is something inherently sexy about this desktop…

Since that’s out of the way, I want to get down to the sheer potential that comes along with owning a Touchsmart. Granted, there is a race amongst the major computing companies to re-revolutionize, so to speak, touch screen technology made famous by Apple and the iPhone, but over the past few years there have been several failed attempts at replicating this slide-touch technology—specifically, the Samsung Instinct.

The HP Touchsmart integrates high-definition viewing capabilities with an overwhelmingly large, 22-inch screen with slide-touch response. It also comes with a built-in webcam and microphone for easy, multimedia communication. What did it for me, though, was the Touchsmart’s homepage: it has one of the most modern, sleek and up-to-date design that rival (and perhaps even mimic), that of several Apple products on the market today.

With all of this in mind, I’m not exactly sure as to what the future may hold for this product, but I find it promising step in a direction that moves away from the monotony of Apple’s total world domination, well, for lack of a better term…
