A Wonder To Behold
The Intel Core i7 Quad Core processor is a wonder to behold. With a maximum output of 3.06GHz, you’ll never have to wait long to open your favorite applications; this is doubly true when you get the TouchSmart 600 Quad with the maximum 8GB of RAM. Users can also choose from Microsoft’s full line of Windows 7 operating systems, from Home to Ultimate.
Just because the HP TouchSmart 600 Quad is a tablet PC doesn’t mean that you have to skimp on hard drive capacity. In fact, this unit comes with up to 2TB of storage space in the form of a 7200RPM disc hard drive that is capable of transferring data at 3GB/s.
Needless to say, the display on the HP TouchSmart 600 Quad is beautiful. The 23-inch high-definition 1080p LCD display is powered by the 1GB GeForce GT230M graphics card, which means that you can play the latest computer games as well as watch the latest data-rich high-definition movies. That’s serious video display capability and it will hit you the moment you turn on the TouchSmart 600 Quad.
To maximize the portability of the HP TouchSmart 600 Quad, the company has incorporated totally wireless technology for Internet connectivity and control. Equipped with a Bluetooth enabled Wireless N-Card you can stay connected anywhere there’s a signal.
Touch the HP TouchSmart 600 Quad
Also included in the package is a wireless keyboard and a wireless mouse, though you may not need them since the display is fully touch-enabled. That means that controlling your favorite applications – whether it’s surfing the net, watching movies, or playing games – is just a touch away.
If you can’t live without wired devices like hard drives, cameras, MP3 players and the like, then don’t fear, there are still plenty of ports to connect your peripherals. In fact, there are five USB ports and a 6-in-1 card reader. And, just in case you want to connect to a video game console, there are composite video inputs.
In terms of design, the HP TouchSmart 600 Quad definitely marks a success for HP, which went with a solid build with clean lines and a matte black case. What really sets the design apart from other similar units is the sleek blue trim on the front.
