New TouchSmart Touchscreen All-in-one PCs Introduced by HP

While HP's introduced plenty of interesting novelties back at CES 2011, the company's still kept a few interesting aces up its sleeve, including here the two new touchscreen AIO (all in one) PCs you'll read about as follows, namely the HP TouchSmart610 Consumer PC and HP TouchSmart 9300 Elite Business PC.

According to HP, these new systems are the company's first touchscreen desktop PCs to feature a 60-degree reclining display, a feature that enables them to provide an increased level of comfort for longer-term use.

Moreover, both products come equipped with 23-inch diagonal high-definition (HD) displays, allowing them to deliver a very good video experience in almost all conditions.

Unfortunately, HP's not particularly forthcoming in terms of tech specs for the TouchSmart610, focusing mostly on its major consumer-oriented sales points, such as Beats Audio.

The TouchSmart 9300, on the other hand, packs some very serious hardware punch, since it comes packed with second-generation Intel Core processors, up to 16 gigabytes (GB) of memory and an optional 160 GB solid-state drive.

This model also sports a high-resolution, adjustable webcam with facial recognition software, delivering an enhanced level of security for enterprise applications.

"As a leader in touch computing, HP has made each iteration of the TouchSmart PC more intuitive, resourceful and fun for users," said James Mouton, senior vice president, Desktop Organization, Personal Systems Group, HP.

"The latest generation is no exception with a new design that makes it easier and more comfortable to use, and it allows businesses to integrate the TouchSmart where convenience, space constraints and appearance matter," Mr. Mouton added.

Moving on to pricing and availability, HP informs us that the TouchSmart610 Consumer PC is expected to be available on Feb. 9 in the United States at a starting price of $899.99, while the TouchSmart 9300 Business PC is expected to be available in May in the United States, but pricing for this particular model will be provided closer to the moment when it will officially arrive in stores.
