HP is an innovative company, which has been always launching products that are user friendly and ergonomically designed. HP has been one of the pioneer companies in the introduction of the touch screen and touch sensitive applications on their desktops and laptops, well ahead of the competition.
HP was one of the first companies to introduce the concept of All-In-One PC way back in 1972. An All-In-One PC, in the technologically advanced world today looks different though. The All-In-One PC is a slim LCD monitor housing the CPU, power supply, drives, disks, displays and everything required in a PC except the keyboard and mouse. With a lot of manufacturers introducing products similar to HP’s touch screen All-In-One PC, HP moved one step ahead in introducing a model with a pivoting facility and even a reclining feature.
In the earlier offerings of HP, the display was vertical and rather cumbersome, even tiring when put to use, for long hours in a day, with the forearm forced to be parallel to the worktable, to touch the screen time and again. This fatigue factor did not go well with the desktop PC. Although, this was okay on POS terminals, ATMs, Kiosks, etc. where the usage was for a few moments only, this posed various issues when brought into application on the desktop PC.
HP introduced two new models recently, with large 23 inch touch screen displays, where the entire display unit, pivoted, can swivel around to 180 degrees and even recline up to 60 degrees. The TouchSmart 610 and 9300, Elite Business PCs have taken the All-In-One PC to completely new heights of comfort and ergonomics, making touch interaction a new experience.
The new TouchSmart software layer has made apps like the NetFlix, Hulu, Twitter etc. innovatively wonderful to work with. The TouchSmart App center is also interesting.
While the TouchSmart 610 All-In-One PC is typically positioned as a consumer model, the 9300 Elite Business All-In-One PC has been put in as an enterprise version as also for Kiosks, POS Counters, etc. or customer spaces. While the TouchSmart 610 is configured with Intel or AMD processors, the 9300 comes with the elite Sandy Bridge chipset from Intel.
Exclusive features like Face Recognition software with the 2 mega pixel camera, Blu-ray drive, 160 GB SSD option, Beats Audio system and 1920 x 1080 resolution make these offerings, exclusive All-In-One PC. The Windows 7 operating system, 802.11 Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 6-in-one card reader, slot loading DVD player, wall mounting options and interesting apps, make the HP products really smart.
