HP today unveiled its first touchscreen desktop PC which features a 60-degree reclining display, enabling users to adjust the display’s position for a comfortable user experience.
With a sleek, clean appearance, the new HP TouchSmart Consumer PC reclines from upright to almost flat, providing increased comfort for longer-term use and the freedom to position the TouchSmart Consumer PC on a kitchen counter, or anywhere the family gathers.
From creating art projects to playing games, the new HP TouchSmart Consumer PC offers users increased range of motion, greater comfort when pointing and dragging on the display, superior viewing and an intuitive touch experience.
The TouchSmart Consumer PC features a 23-inch diagonal HD display that reclines up to 60 degrees and tilts forward up to five degrees.
The wide-angle, LED backlit LCD screen provides optimal viewing angles, even when reclined, while advanced multi-touch technology allows for an accurate response.
The TouchSmart Consumer PC’s simple one-cord setup and slim, all-in-one design save space and allow them to fit into any room or business environment. For a clean and uncluttered appearance, control features are conveniently located on the right and left sides of the display.
With its refined industrial design and the latest version of HP TouchSmart 4.0 software, the TouchSmart Consumer PC creates an immersive touch experience to enjoy personal and premium media, and makes it easier and more comfortable than ever to surf the web, edit photos or access social networks.
In addition to touch-optimized applications from Facebook and Twitter, as well as HP’s exclusive RecipeBox and webcam applications, users can add new applications via the TouchSmart Apps Center. The TouchSmart610 also features Beats Audio. A high-performance technology developed by HP and Beats by Dr. Dre, Beats Audio allows listeners to hear music the way the artist intended it – just as it sounds in the studio.
For the gaming enthusiast, select models of the TouchSmart Consumer PC are available with an exclusive HP touch enabled version of Ubisoft’s real-time strategy game, R.U.S.E. - which has a RRP of $49.99. Users will enjoy using multitouch navigation to deceive and manipulate enemies as they lead their nation to victory.
