Today we'll be reviewing two very different systems from Hewlett-Packard, the HP TouchSmart 300-1200 and the HP Pavilion p6210y. One offers an interesting all-in-one design, while the other promises to fit nicely into your budget. Let's take a closer look.
The HP TouchSmart 300-1200 is an all-in-one desktop found in retail stores with some nice features and a built-in touch-screen display. It will definitely attract some suitors who value neatness and hate clutter, but at a hefty price tag (for a desktop) of $899.99, one will have to wonder how many will be drawn to it. The TouchSmart 300-1200 comes with a one-year warranty on parts and labor. Technical support is available via the company's website or by calling a 24-7 toll-free line.
The TouchSmart 300-1200's performance is backed by a 2.7 GHz AMD Athlon II X2 235e dual-core processor with 2 MB of L2 cache. While it is far from a computing powerhouse, the TouchSmart 300-1200 should suffice for all of your everyday normal tasks, whether it be checking email, surfing the net, watching videos, or other similar activities. Of course, one issue is that its high price reflects its all-in-one status, so if performance speed is really of the utmost value to you, the option exists of buying a cheaper, better performing regular desktop and just adding a monitor.
As far as competing all-in-one desktops go, though, the TouchSmart 300-1200 has solid performance. It includes 4 GB of RAM to help you run multiple applications at once. Solid storage capability comes in the form of a 500 GB hard drive for all of your standard and multimedia files. For graphics, you get an ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics card. In terms of the operating system, the TouchSmart 300-1200 comes pre-installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit.
Other than the basic core components, you get some added bonuses as well with the HP TouchSmart 300-1200. For starters, 802.11n Wi-Fi is included to grant you access to the fastest available wireless networks. A DVD drive is on board too, that makes this all-in-one a viable entertainment device, whether you want to listen to and burn CDs or watch DVDs.
If you enjoy chatting with friends, the integrated webcam and microphone are handy for video chatting via services like Skype. Data transfer from other devices like digital cameras can be done as well, thanks to the desktop's media card reader that supports various formats such as Memory Sticks, SD cards, and more.
