HP TouchSmart IQ500t

 

The 22-inch TouchSmart 500t is essentially a faster, slimmed-down version of the 25.5-inch HP TouchSmart IQ816. Both all-in-one PCs are multitouch capable, as is the 18.5-inch Dell Studio One 19. Multitouch aside, the $1650 500t's closest competitor in...

Beautiful touchscreen ; Great general performance

Glossy screen can be overly reflective ; Upgradability limited to two areas

A vibrant multitouch display and excellent general performance make the IQ500t a competitive all-in-one option.

Preview: HP TouchSmart IQ500 Series PC

 

As sneak previews go, this one was pretty much hush hush, cloak and dagger style. HP was kind enough to let us in on their latest TouchSmart product that's now being revealed at HP's Connecting Your World Event in Berlin. Here's a quick look at the HP...

HP TouchSmart PC IQ500

 

Interacting with your PC by directly using your hands instead of a peripheral is not something new, but it's not yet mainstream either. In fact, it se...

Intuitive interface, great screen, good speed

Doesn't have an expansion slot, nor a D-Sub or DVI port

A relatively new-breed PC with an intuitive touch-screen interface that would be just as useful in an office as in a home environment.

HP TouchSmart IQ500 All-In-One PC

 

HP's second generation TouchSmart PC is a leap forward from the original, but is this enough? Updated with video review.

Either side of the screen are an assortment of connections and shortcut buttons. On the left, for instance, are a couple of easy access USB ports, headphone and microphone jacks, above which sits a button for adjusting the 'ambient light'. This runs...

HP's latest TouchSmart PC has an all-in-one design, similar to Apple's iMac range.

HP TouchSmart IQ500 review

 

The IQ500 is the best all-in-one PC we've seen to date. It's the epitome of style, has very useful features and is versatile. The jury's still out as to whether a touchscreen is absolutely necessary, but those who want a compact, fun PC that's a little...

Design ; Wireless keyboard and mouse ; Ambient LED light is a cool, if superflous feature

It's hard to access small icons with the touchscreen ; Average performance

Conclusion The IQ500 is the best all-in-one PC we've seen to date. It's the epitome of style, has very useful features such as a TV tuner and wireless remote control, and offers plenty of versatility. The jury's still out as to whether a touchscreen is...

Video Feature: Hands-On with the HP TouchSmart IQ500 PC

 

Forget Windows 7, HP is already there! Andy goes hands-on with HP's new TouchSmart PC.

Hidden around the edges and the back is a wealth of connectivity, too. On the left edge are a couple of easily accessible USB ports, along with headphone and microphone jacks. These are joined by a button that (de)activates the ambient light that...

HP TouchSmart IQ500

 

Lifestyle PCs tend to follow similar designs: a bright, high-quality screen, decent mobile components and bags of style. That's the pattern followed by the Sony VAIO VGC-LT2S and the A-Listed Dell XPS One.

A stylish and usable touchscreen PC that's right at home in the living room - though it lacks Blu-ray
