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 burner. Oh, and there's a TV tuner shoved inside too, for good measure... HP Touchsmart 520 All-in-One PC Review
Well thank you hothardware i am know guilty of atleast three of the seven deadly sins, lust, pride and deceit.
lust because i want it Deceit because i will lie to get it. Pride because i will be so proud when i have it.
All in one pc aren't just for me.I hate touching a screen and later see a screen full of fingerprints.I'm a gamer so It is not for me.
Nice Review thats some high end hardware right there, But for those people who likes All in one pc I will wait for win 8 to come out :)
Nice job HP! Glad to see them putting out such a nice system. Thanks for the review Paul!

I just set one of these up at the bosses desk. I was fairly unimpressed, there is little reason to need a touch screen desktop computer. It's a pain to use, the on screen touch interface is slow and lags, your arm will get tired in 5 minutes from moving all over the place on about 2 feet of screen space. It's heavy, about 40 or 50lbs so it's not like you will have it in your lap. The beats audio is one step above a good laptop or cheap factory speakers, we tried it once and hooked up the 10+ year old microsoft speakers & sub. Future upgrades are not possible unlike desktops that usually are good for a mid-life upgrade. I think most people will just use the included keyboard & mouse and return to the windows desktop after the novelty of wears off in about 2 hours.
