HP TouchSmart IQ816
Released September, 2008
The Pros:Has a gaming grade mobile video card that can play recent games on lower resolutions. Awesomely large touchscreen. A fresh take on the PC, finally some competition for the iMac.
The Cons:Has a Blu-ray drive - but not digital outputs for a larger TV or better audio system. Such a large touchscreen is cool, but not functional (especially if you mount it!).
Introduced in the middle of September 2008 and released to the public in mid October, the HP Touchsmart IQ816 is a high end media-centric PC, integrated into large 25.5" high definition, wall-mountable touchscreen monitor.
