HP has announced that the latest HP TouchSmart PCs are now available through consumer electronics retailers nationwide. Here is more info on the new HP TouchSmart PC:
Consumers simply touch, tap or sweep a finger across the screen of the TouchSmart PC to access information, entertainment and social networks in a natural, intuitive way. Without using a keyboard or mouse, consumers can play music and create playlists; crop, edit and share photos; and easily check the weather or watch TV.
Digital entertainment at your fingertips
Requiring only a power cord for set up, HP TouchSmart PCs combine a 22-inch diagonal, high-definition widescreen display with a powerful, energy-efficient Intel Core 2 Duo processor in a single, integrated design.
While providing all the capabilities of a traditional PC, select models also offer an array of entertainment features, including a TV tuner for watching and recording TV shows, a built-in DVD burner and integrated premium stereo speakers. A built-in webcam and microphone help users keep in touch with friends and family over the Internet through video chat and conference.
A low-profile wireless keyboard, wireless mouse and integrated WLAN(7) offer a truly clutter-free, wireless experience; and the PC?s adjustable screen tilts up and down for maximum viewing comfort. The HP Ambient Light lets people set mood lighting and see the keyboard in the dark.
HP works to reduce the environmental impact of its products by reducing the amount of materials used in both the products and packaging. HP TouchSmart PCs are ENERGY STAR qualified and use a new all-cardboard packaging design that reduces the use of plastic-foam cushioning materials. The next-generation chassis design uses 55 percent less metal and 37 percent less plastic than standard PCs and monitors. HP also offers responsible and convenient reuse and recycling services globally.
Delivering energy efficiency with advanced power management features, HP technology can help users reduce PC energy use up to 45 percent by saving up to 86 kilowatt hours per year.
