Review: HP TouchSmart IQ770 Home Media PC

 

One look at the HP TouchSmart makes a striking impression. As it should, since it's in your kitchen. Reviving the “all-in-one” PC, the TouchSmart is...

Incredible good looks. Cleans up easily. Includes a spot and cables to connect an HP photo printer (without additional footprint). Decent specs: 2 GB of RAM, 320 GB hard drive, beefy graphics card, and slot-loading DVD burner. TV tuner and foot-shaped...

Pokey CPU (1.6 GHz AMD Turion) makes the TouchSmart painfully slow to respond. Windows Vista OS makes for an unhappy (and buggy) companion to sleek TouchSmart software. Screen loses clarity when not viewed straight-on. Minimal upgradeability

HP HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC

 

The elegant, Microsoft Vista Home Premium-based HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC is Hewlett-Packard's first stab at an all-in-one PC--and the company's first desktop system to incorporate a touch-screen display.

Beautiful, integrated design ; Touchscreen enhances PC's versatility

Mobile components turn in mediocre performance

HP TouchSmart PC IQ770

 

HP's 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 its intuitive touch screen software and a comprehensive lineup of features. If you're looking for a PC to...

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.

Pokey performance for systems in its price range; fixed configuration; no HD optical drive option.

HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC

 

The IQ770 is built around a mobile 1.6GHz dual core AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-52 processor, and as such has AMD's LIVE! Media Center enhancements. Those LIVE! enhancements (like those of Intel's Viiv) still aren't fully realized yet, but at least they are...

Great all in one design with integrated touch screen. TV controls on the screen bezel. Wireless everything. Integrated IR receiver for MCE remote. ATSC/HDTV tuner

No HD-DVD or other Hi-Def optical drive (yet). No internal CableCard support. Internet Security subscription is only 60 days. Wireless keyboard doesn't have pointing device

HP is calling its new TouchSmart IQ770 PC a "perfect kitchen PC". While it is that, it also will fit well in the den, bedroom, or anywhere you use a shared computer.

HP TouchSmart IQ770

 

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.

Well designed, great display, very good touch screen, relatively small footprint

HP’s TouchSmart applications are so limited that they’re virtually worthless

HP’s TouchSmart IQ770 could never serve as our primary PC—we knew going into this review that it wouldn’t compete with our zero-point reference platform, and it’s clearly not designed for hardcore gaming—but we’d rather have multiple PCs dedicated to...

HardwareCentral - HP TouchSmart IQ770 Review.

 

The kitchen. The final frontier.

That said, it's a pleasure to watch TV shows, slide shows, or home videos on the IQ770. The high-gloss, 19-inch widescreen display proved bright and vivid, with no bad pixels to be seen on our test unit, and the stereo speakers on either side of the...

HP TouchSmart IQ770 PC

 

Starfleet has been doing it for years, so it's about time we all had a go. HP brings touch-screen control to the masses with this all-in-one PC.

At the back are jacks for the integrated 5.1-channel surround sound together with more USB2.0 ports, including one that sits next to a power outlet to accommodate HP’s USB/power printer Y-cable. The latter comes in handy if you own an A510 or A610...
