Half a year ago, HP was officially announcing that the TouchSmart 600 AIO PC is beginning to ship to consumers.

An impressive machine to say the least, the HP TouchSmart 600 looks like the perfect blend between HP’s touch technology and the use of Windows 7. Under the hood there’s a choice for Core 2 Duo processor that clocks in 2.1GHz, the Core i3 or Core i5 chipsets, 4 GB of RAM a 750GB hard drive and a DVD Burner with LightScribe Technology (or you can upgrade it to a slot loading Blu-ray drive along with touch driven Hulu and Netflix interfaces

Other specs and features include an NVIDIA GeForce G230M graphics card with 320MB of memory (integrated), Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) and Bluetooth connectivity, a 6-in-1 card reader, and a built-in adjustable-tilt webcam and microphone.

However, the most interesting feature of the TouchSmart 600 is the 23-inch 1080p (FullHD) 16:9 widescreen LCD display with BrightView technology that makes image quality, stunning — we can easily categorize it as one of the best implementation of touch input we’ve seen in an AIO PC.

Another good point relates to its amazing compact design that makes you think of an Apple product (sans the sleek white coating). One that you can mount on a wall in a matter of seconds. With graceful curves down its side and no fans (which mean no noise), the TouchSmart sounds like the perfect family computer that won’t require all sorts of cords and complex ways to set up.

In the UK, the HP TouchSmart 600 can be yours for £961 (£1,129 inclusive of VAT).
