The word ‘tactile’ probably best describes the focus of the IT industry today. Be it a laptop, tablet or a smartphone, it’s not cool if it doesn’t have the ‘touch’. You aren’t satisfied with a machine that lets you only call people, only listen to music or only surf the Web. You also must be able to swipe it, tap it and at times even pinch it. In this oh-so-sensitive-to-touch digital world, HP has created a stir by releasing two phenomenal models – the TouchSmart 610 Consumer PC and TouchSmart 9300 Elite Business PC. Ergonomically designed, both models offer a 60 degree recline option mounted on a swivel-to-suit-your-inclination stand. So, the next time you are working on a project, playing a game or tweeting you don’t have to worry about getting a stiff neck.

These innovative design features allow businesses to use the TouchSmart 9300 Elite Business PC to interact more effectively with their customers. During an exhibition, it can be wall mounted so customers can simply swipe the touchscreen to obtain information on different products. That’s what you can term a hands-on marketing measure! Completely geared for the workplace, this PC features Intel’s second-generation Core processors with Windows 7 as its operating system. A memory of up to 16 GB, an optional 160 GB Solid-state drive (SSD), plus an adjustable web cam and facial recognition software make it a must-have for all business organizations.

For your home, the TouchSmart 610 PC is ideal company. It comes preloaded with apps like Hulu, Netflix, Rhapsody, Twitter, and HP’s very own RecipeBox. Carry the PC to your kitchen and cook a sumptuous dinner using the RecipeBox or enjoy a quiet evening by yourself tweeting away from the comfort of your couch. It comes with all the hardware your heart can desire: 802.11 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a slot-loading DVD player, a 6-in-one card reader, and wow! it’s even upgradable to Blu-ray. The icing on the cake is the introduction of a new HP LinkUp application which allows you to wireless link an HP Notebook to the TouchSmart 610 PC. This means that you can use TouchSmart to access any data on your Netbook through your home network. All the changes you make are automatically saved onto the Notebook saving you the trouble of transferring files one by one.

This duo from HP promises to spice up your personal life as well as meet your professional needs. Truly what you would call an All-in-one (AIO).
