HP TouchSmart 9100
Released January, 2009
The Pros:Sleek design that looks great in business and home environments. DVI video out allows for an additional display.
The Cons:Dated processor and chipset may feel sluggish compared to Intel's newer chips. Very limited upgrade options as is typical of all-in-ones. Very limited hard drive options (250, 320GB) may not be enough for most users.
The HP TouchSmart 9100 is an upper mid-cost all-in-one PC, designed for business use. This model is a step up from the lower cost Omni Pro 110 business all-in-one in a few ways. First, with twenty-three inches of 1980 x 1080 resolution, the TouchSmart 9100's display is both larger and higher resolution than the Omni Pro 110's twenty inch 1600 x 900 setup.
The 9100's display is also multi-touch, while the Omni Pro 110's is non-touch. Another difference between the two models is the TouchSmart 9100's high-end NVIDIA MCP7A-J chipset, which supports Low-Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS), a power-saving feature. On the graphics side of things, NVIDIA's GeForce 200 Series is not exactly the newest thing on the market, but it can handle more intense graphics applications than the Omni Pro 110's Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500. The TouchSmart 9100 runs on an Intel Core 2 Duo processor T6570 (2.10 GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB), which is one of several processor options for the Omni Pro 110.

Very limited hard drive options (250, 320GB) may not be enough for most users.
Display is ridiculously glossy--makes it difficult to use in many lighting conditions.
Much pricier than building an equivalent PC, monitor included.
Takes quite a while to boot up.
