HP TouchSmart 600-1155 Review


When we heard HP was building its latest TouchSmart with Intel's Core i7 processor, we figured it was game-over for the competition: Lenovo and Sony use quad-cores, too, but they both tapped Intel's Core 2 Quad. MSI picked an even less capable Core 2...

Best-in-breed touch-screen; excellent webcam; IR emitter; 6GB DDR3

Relatively slow CPU; relies on external power brick

All four machines feature integrated webcams, but the one built into the TouchSmart delivered far superior image quality and it tilts, so you can use it seated or standing. All four machines come with TV tuners, but only HP thought to include an IR...

HP TouchSmart 600-1055


Evaluating successive generations of HP's TouchSmart series reminds us of shopping for a new car. If you fall in love and buy this year's model, you must never, ever visit the showroom to look at next year's model or you'll be hit with a bout of...

Blu-ray drive; HDMI input; improved touchscreen UI; touch-optimized third-party apps

Weak benchmark performance; integrated audio amp needs more power

We had refrained from benchmarking all-in-one machines until Dell sent us its XPS One 24 (May 2009), which came with an Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 desktop CPU; so it’s only fair that we benchmark HP’s offering, too. (We still don’t run our gaming...

HP TouchSmart 600 Quad


Competition is stiff in the category of big-screen all-in-one PCs. TV tuners and large hard drives are becoming standard features, as manufacturers attempt to displace televisions in dorm rooms and cramped bedrooms with high-definition-capable,...

Impressive audio performance ; Extensive media connectivity ; Strong general performance

Middling Webcam quality

HP's latest TouchSmart packs a punch, delivering strong media-theater functionality and the line's signature TouchSmart style.

HP TouchSmart 600


HP's top-of-the-line third-generation TouchSmart touchscreen PC should keep the line front and center for consumers looking for an all-in-one running a Microsoft operating system. Its sharp design, surprising utility, and inspired suite of touchscreen...

Huge, gorgeous, 16:9 1080p screen ; TouchSmart suite delivers some excellent programs ; Svelte and attractive design ; Doubles nicely as a PVR/TV, complete with HDMI input for game consoles

Touchscreen is still just a smidge finicky ; Middling processor and graphics card could do with an upgrade ; It’s still a bit costly

HP’s latest all-in-one touchscreen PC, the TouchSmart 600-1055, boasts impressive upgrades to both form and function.

HP TouchSmart 600


The HP TouchSmart 600 shows how getting an early jump on unproven technology can pay off. HP was first to market with a touch-based all-in-one PC more than two years ago. Now that Windows 7 has spurred almost every major desktop vendor toward...

Matches Sony in capability to connect and switch between external video sources easily; Recipe Box touch program best kitchen app we've seen; smart touch app partnerships with Hulu, Twitter, and Netflix; loud enough to fill a room

Slow performance; touch input suffers from occasional unresponsiveness

If HP's TouchSmart 600 won't at least get you thinking about the idea of bringing a PC into your kitchen, the concept truly has no hope. With well-thought-out touch apps, a wide, easy-to-use array of digital media features, and an attractive, flexible...

HP TouchSmart 600 Desktop Review


1080p screen, Blu-ray drive, HDTV tuner ; Excellent custom touch-enabled applications

Weak graphics performance ; Limited upgradability

This third-generation TouchSmart PC is boosted by Windows 7's gesture support, but HP's custom multitouch software is even more impressive.

HP TouchSmart 600-1055 PC


The HP TouchSmart 600-1055 PC ($1,599 list) is HP's third generation of TouchSmart PCs for the home. HP pioneered touch computing for the home and each successive generation has gotten better. The latest model combines HP's Touch experience with...

Blu-ray player. True 1080p HD. Ambient Lighting. Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g/n. Minimal bloatware. Kitchen friendly. Very adjustable. Wireless everything but power and TV. HDMI and game inputs

Only 60-day subscription to Norton Internet Security. Some competitors offer Quad Core at this price point. $100-200 more expensive than rivals

The HP TouchSmart 600-1055 PC is HP's top-of-the-line Windows 7 PC that shows how touch screen interfaces are going mainstream.

Beautiful and intuitive touch based software suite, display is bright and colorful, powerful speaker system, manages to cover all of your entertainment needs in one package

The display is a fingerprint magnet, unfortunately not every cable customer will be able to take advantage of the DVR functions

HP TouchSmart 600 All-In-One PC Review


With a claim of “nearly 30-years of touch innovation” under its belt, HP is no stranger to touch-input technology. The company has recently integrated touch input into a number of its consumer and business product lines, such as tablets and displays...

There is one last performance metric to mention, and it is one that more and more people are becoming concerned with: power consumption. We can’t tell you how owning a TouchSmart 600 is going to impact your carbon footprint, but we can tell you how...
