Touchsmart Computer Reviews

HP TouchSmart 310-1126 Desktop

About time touch screen laptops and desktop computers are finally flooding the market. All new HP models will have Windows 7.0 operating system.

Although HP wasn’t first to introduce touch screen computers into the market, as Dell already had a $2000 version debuting in spring, TouchSmart series are definitely aimed at average consumers. Toshiba will also have a few touch screen laptops coming out at the beginning of November. It will also feature a webcam and “photo booth” interactive touch screen app. Hulu, Netflix, Pandora, Recipe Box and many other touch enabled apps are also included in both laptops and desktop pc’s.

Designed particularly for fast-growing touch technology, useless background activities are eliminated for faster loading and turn-off times, as well as greatly improved and simplified operating system to sufficiently increase battery life.

Touch screen info booths have become familiar sights in museums, zoos and travel points. Point-of-sale tills ave use touch screen technology for years. Department stores offer touch screen kiosks for wedding gift selection. The HP TouchSmart PC’s touch interface allows the user to control photos, music and video by tapping or flicking. With Microsoft’s new Windows 7 designed for touch screen applications, there’s never been a better time to abandon the mouse, at least for simple tasks.
