The TouchSmart 520-1070 is a fairly remarkable AIO equipped with high-end hardware and a robust selection of software, all of which comes wrapped in a 23-inch touchscreen display with a speaker bar blasting out Beats Audio. Any fears that HP's recent preoccupation with righting its ship would result in a degraded product line go right out the window when you run your finger down the 520's spec sheet, which includes an Intel Core i7 2600S processor clocked at 2.8GHz, 8GB of DDR3 system memory, a capacious 2TB hard drive, discrete graphics powered by AMD's Radeon HD 6450A GPU, and even a Blu-ray...

Considering how close HP came to selling off or severing its world leading PC division, it's products like the new TouchSmart 520-1070 all-in-one (AIO) that make us glad somebody switched out the company's water supply. Actually, it's HP's old CEO, Leo Apotheker, who was responsible for the OEM's temporary insanity, and not some tainted H2O, but that's a rant for another time and another place. What we're focusing on here is an AIO system that comes well spec'd and offers a surprising amount of performance in a form factor typically more focused on aesthetics and convenience than raw computing...

Can you tell that companies are ramping up for the holidays yet? The flood of new machines has definitely begun, with Asus holding a mega media event last week, ViewSonic introducing the G Tablet and Samsung bringing the Galaxy Tab to all four major U.S. carriers. But today, Hewlett-Packard is stealing the show with a new array of machines that all look to take advantage of Windows 7 and touch. Let's get started with the big fella: the all new TouchSmart 310 all-in-one PC. This is HP's all-out assault on Apple's iMac, and the new 310 is looking sharper than ever. This one is a 20" machine, aimed... Read more...
Sponsored post by: Mark Budgell from HP's TheNextBench.com If you're anything like me, there is a soundtrack for almost every life experience. Parties, the daily commute, date night, weddingsÉsometimes I even rock out at work (on headphones, of course). Unfortunately, the digital revolution that brought us the convenience of MP3 files and portable music devices also eroded its quality. It's more than just a love for music with Jimmy Iovine - as the chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records and Beats co-founder, it's his life. You can hear it for yourself as Jimmy and some of his friends... Read more...
