HP TouchSmart 300


$800.00 Released October, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Compact all-in-one design. Powerful enough for the majority of consumers. Comes with Windows 7.

The Cons:The video board supports two monitors, but there is no plug for the second one! 16:9 aspect ratio is not ideal (too wide) for web browsing, productivity software. Limited tilt stand mobility - the most comfortable position would be closer to horizontal (typewriter style) but this is not possible.

trekker44: #hp_touchsmart_300 It's actually more upgradable than I thought. The memory was easy to upgrade as well as puttling a larger 3.5" disk drive. I can actually see the CPU and it looks like I could go from the dual processor CPU to the X4 Quad processor CPU. Jan 30, 10
