HP TouchSmart PC gets refreshed, unboxed

just announced their newly updated PC. We were able to get our hands on one a little early, and figured we’d do our obligatory unboxing gallery. When we first saw the original back at 2007, we thought it was a huge, clunky computer. This new design actually seems to almost one-up Apple in a way. After all, the computer has a similar profile to an iMac, and is touch sensitive - you know, hence the whole TouchSmart name.

The model we got also features a wireless keyboard and mouse, both of which operate over RF technology rather than Bluetooth, which means sync issues should be non-existent. Oh, don’t get us wrong, this computer does include Bluetooth, as well as a host of other technologies. It’s packed to the brim with the latest technology too. While we’re on the subject, might as well list it all out, right?

Well, we’ve got an Intel Core 2 Duo T5850 processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, SuperMulti DVD burner, 802.11b/g/n support, NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS HD graphics card, and ships with Vista Home Premium 64-bit edition.

Hit up out HP TouchSmart PC unboxing gallery for the full goods.

I think it has got some of the features as hp hdx dragon pc, but not all are.same

I digg the story, because i liked it, reagarding the unboxing video.

hi Andru,

You can keep the Dragon I would take the TouchSmart, any day.  But think HP should give it another name like may the Slayer

This is one awesome computer! It would be nice to have a touch screen and I also like the wireless keyboard and mouse. And has 4 gb of ram which is alot and just everything about it makes it very likeable.

Like the other commentors up there, I was comparing this PC to the HP HDX Dragon.  Although the Dragon was a Notebook PC, I think it’s still logical to compare the two PC’s because they’re both heavy and they both have big screens.  The HP Dragon has a 20-inch screen while the Touchsmart PC has a 22-inch screen.  I find it funny that the HP HDX Dragon is $5,000 while this Touchsmart PC is just around $1,500.  The specs of the Touchsmart PC are almost similar to the specs of the HP HDX Dragon!  They both are very powerful.  The only reason I would see anyone wanting to purchase the HP HDX Dragon is for entertainment, and using it as a PC rather than a notebook.  For a PC the Touchsmart PC is way better and worth the low price.  The obvious reason for purchasing it over the HP HDX Dragon is that it’s touchscreen!

For those that like to participate in giveaways, HP is holding a sweepstakes for this Touchsmart PC.  I believe it’s only open to those living in the U.S.  If you go to the following URL, you can enter it:
