Unboxing Live 040: HP TouchSmart PC second gen

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, PC, Peripherals, Videocasts

We were able to get our hands on one of the new TouchSmart computers recently, and were very impressed by what we saw - especially when compared to the original TouchSmart that we saw back at 2007. We unbox the new TouchSmart in this episode, showing off the new, sleek form factor, along with all the new wireless accessories that HP has designed to compliment the experience.

What we love most about it, aside from the cool touch screen implementation, is the fact that it is a full featured, powerful computer. Typically, all-in-one computers like these have been underpowered. Not so with the TouchSmart, which is chock-full of RAM (4GB), hard drive space (500 GB), 2.16 GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 256 MB NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS HD graphics card, and Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 64-bit edition. It even has an integrated ATSC & NTSC TV tuner with PVR and remote.

Check out the video for the full scoop on the new HP TouchSmart.

If you want to pick up one of your own, take a look at the HP TouchSmart premium version, or the standard HP TouchSmart computer.

HP Mini-Note 2133 unboxing gallery

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Galleries, Laptop

We got our hands on one of the new ultraportable netbooks, and thought you guys would enjoy seeing a gallery that’s chock full of unboxing shots. The Mini-Note is HP’s entry into the netbook (very tiny, ultraportable computers that are geared towards Internet tasks) realm, and we think they nailed it in quite a few key areas. From our HP Mini-Note review:

The HP Mini-Note 2133 impresses with its over-all well thought-out design and strong focus on business performance. While the unwieldy mouse button placement will likely throw most users for a loop, it is possible to adapt after a few hours of usage. If you are in the market for an ultra-light laptop with a roomy keyboard and high resolution screen, but don’t feel like waiting around to see if an Atom version is on the way, the 2133 seems like an ideal choice.

Of course, you can check out our full review of the Mini-Note if you think you might have a need for such a device. In the meantime, head on over and check out our Mini-Note unboxing gallery to see it in all its glory.

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.

Unboxing Live 036: HP Pavilion DV6885SE Special Edition notebook

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Laptop, PC, Videocasts

We open up the Pavilion DV6885 notebook in this edition of Unboxing Live. We were completely amazed back when we saw it at , because of what we consider to be the machine’s striking beauty. If you are looking for a computer that goes against the status quo in the looks department, check this one out. The copper finish (which I believe is officially called “Clay” by HP) is as against the grain as you are going to get - plus, the specs aren’t too shabby either. You can find this one online for about $1,000 USD. Full feature list after the jump.

Check out the video above for the full unboxing. If you are interested, check out our other .
