Guide Review - HP TouchSmart IQ804 All-In-One Desktop PC
9/24/08 - HP's TouchSmart systems really set themselves apart from
other all-in-one desktop systems. The built-in touch screen
displays and user interface make for a much different experience.
The custom UI does an excellent job of linking together common
applications, media and tasks that really builds a layer beyond
what Vista's interface provides and without the need of a mouse.
The biggest change with the new TouchSmart IQ804 is the screen.
Previous models features a 22-inch screen that was average for the
market. Now HP packs in a very large 25.5-inch screen that is one
of the largest and highest resolutions on the market. The 1920x1200
resolution is able to handle the full 1080p high definition video.
This is supplemented by the inclusion of digital analog tuner that
lets it be a media center. The VESA compatible mounting points also
let it easily mount onto any wall, saving space from a desk or
With all these great media features, it would have been nice to see
HP include a Blu-ray compatible player with the TouchSmart IQ804.
Those looking for such a feature will have to wait for the higher
priced IQ816 model that will come with a Blu-ray writer drive and a
few other improvements. With the price being what it is, it seems
like the Blu-Ray should have been included.
One other nice feature added to the TouchSmart IQ804 is the Pocket
Media bay. This allows users to easily supplement the already large
500GB drive with an HP portable Pocket Media drive that adds
additional space but also can be removed for storage on the go.
Overall, the TouchSmart IQ804 is a very good system that offers a
lot for an all-in-one desktop PC, but its price puts it on the
higher end and the lack of a Blu-ray drive makes it fall short of a
full media center system.
