I am not writing this review to get into the Mac vs. PC fray. Apple makes amazing, sexy products (and let's face it, the "sexy" aspects of all those great Steve Jobs designs have a whole lot to do with why some people choose them). And I will never forget the first time I walked into an Apple store and saw the iMac with the giant screen and where . . .the . . .hell . . .is . . . the CPU??!! I almost bought one on the spot. That is, until I saw the price tag.
My daughter, who does lots of work with graphics and photo editing, swears by her Mac, as do most people who are using their computers for that kind of work. But I'm just a typical, middle-aged multi-tasker with a limited budget, so when I saw H-P came out with the same kind of design, with a 23" screen and the integrated CPU, and for under a grand, I jumped on it. And three months later, I have no regrets. With Windows 7-64, which I have always found to run flawlessly and the CORE i5 chip, which is fast, fast, fast, this computer does everything I ask of it. Except . . .
I used to have an ASUS G-73 gaming laptop, and the absolutely most demanding games, like Deus Ex, which ran flawlessly on the ASUS, will not run on the H-P. It just does not have the video power required. I have no complaints, one of the reasons I got rid of the ASUS in favor of the H-P is I find I no longer have much time for gaming. So if high-power gaming is important to you, look elsewhere for a computer.
I haven't even mentioned the touch screen, because I haven't gotten used to using it, and rarely do. I don't know how many will consider the touch screen a factor in opting for this computer, and one of these days, I hope to use it for those instances where touch is the way to go. But even if it didn't have it, or like me, you just don't use it, I think you'll find this H-P a joy to use, and a hell of a good buy.

first off I am an HP fan going back 30 years having sold all their business class computers and networking. But on a personal lever HP has always been in my home, except fopr way back having an Apple IIe.
But my inikital review is this.

Pro's: setting up under 5 minutes which is amazing compared to prior systems.Sysyem is fast, maybe not the fastest but for what I want it for it is fast enough, having upgreaded from an HP Paviliion Multimedia system 4 years old. The screen is superb, clear, bright and so easy to read. The tilt is also cool. Keyboard is so much better then all the prior ones I had from HP. The wireless KB and mouse I was amazed not having wireless before I had nothing to do. Did all my windows updates, installed Microsfot Essentials for security, the best free app available, installed CCleaner for daily system cleaning and PC Matic as a seconday system checker. I'm running this hard wiored into my FIOS router, wireless will come later.

Con's: so far none.

Recommed: highly worth the money.

This is an excellent computer at a great price. The touch smart screen is fun and a great help in working with photo editing.
The reviews were quite helpful in making the selection.

I bought this computer for my father. The computer is very fast, and the all-in-one design saves a lot of space on his desk. The keyboard and mouse are good, but nothing spectacular. He was replacing an iMac running Windows via Parallels, and was very pleased with the performance boost obtained from having only one OS running at a time.

The only negative comment I have about it is the touchscreen. I got him this version because of the short time frame available, but would rather have gotten one with a regular display and better specs for basically the same price. We played around with the touch functionality for about a week. After that, the fun wore out, and it made much more sense to use the mouse to click on things. I guess some people will find more functionality on having a touchscreen, but there isn't really any gain when using it as a regular office computer. Furthermore, there are a lot of other models to consider. From Gateway to the new Sonys.

In conclusion, be sure to do some research before buying it. You will see that getting rid of the touchscreen will yield better processor/graphics for almost the same price.

I have to say, having a home-based business means I go through a computer every year or so. I've tried them all. This HP TouchSmart is by far the best I have tried in the last many years (and yes, that includes Apple - I used to be a die-hard Mac girl.) The features and speed are precisely what I needed, and for those times when you are looking over someone's shoulder discussing something on the screen, you can just reach out and touch the screen and it responds immediately. (Could be annoying to the user at the mouse, but...works for me!!) The sound system is great, paired up with my iPhone AND Jawbone JamBox, no problems. Shipping through Amazon was super fast, as always. Setup was a breeze, maybe five minutes. LOVE everything about it!
