This is a stunning PC- just got mine delivered a couple of days ago and it's really worth the money.

Core2Duo 2.2Ghz, 4GB Ram, NVidia 9300M GS 256MB, 500GB HDD, DVDRW, 64-bit Windows Vista Home Premium

Look up detailed specs here :

There is no discount as such, but if you combine a 15% discount voucher (HPBTSPC) with 8% from quidco, then the original price of £1099 comes down to an effective pr ice of £860.

Yes, the graphics and the processor aren't the hottest around, but it's an extremely sleek 22" all-in-one pc, that looks ridiculously cool in my room and the TOUCHSCREEN is much much better than i expected. Compare it to the Dell XPS One and/or Sony Vaio all-in-ones and/or the iMac, and at £860 this is a steal. It's got a built in Tv tuner, comes with a remote, more than decent builtin speakers (but SPDIF output if you wanted to attach separate ones), builtin WiFi (n), builtin bluetooth, builtin webcam --- just read the specs.

I should say, the voucher when I found it said it expires on 15th Sep, but I've just gone to the HP Store and checked and it seems to still be working, so I'd be extremely quick with this before the signifcant 15% saving becomes unavailable. Otherwise, there are other 10% vouchers floating around I believe.

Funky would be an accurate description for this, but would like to add it's pretty functional too.
I initially thought this would just be an expensive funky toy, but reading the specs and now using the PC has blown away those misconceptions. 4GB RAM with a 64-bit operating system (so that it can actually see the full 4 gigs) works well. Unless you're looking for a gaming machine, this should handle most tasks you throw at it. I would have said it was expensive at £1100, but def not at 860, coming direct from the HP store.

Remember it's a quality 22" screen and a TV as well.

Other benefits that we tend not to think about but only notice when actually using the product is the serious lack of cable clutter, as it's an "all-in-one" so just a power cable to connect. Mouse /keyboard receiver is built in, webcam built in, 5 USB ports seem sufficient at least now so no external hub required, speakers built in, monitor built in, mic built in, firewire built in, card reader built in ---- many of these could have been extra accessories that use up USB ports and cause additional cable clutter.
It's also just around 10kg, so really easy to pick up and shift around the house if required. Add to that the touchscreen, and it's almost like a big tablet pc.

I have one of the HP Tablet laptops and the touch screen is AWFUL!! Is the screen on this responsive and accurate?

I mean... does it respond to exactly where you touch it?

I have fully calibrated the screen on my laptop but it seems to respond to the wrong things ALL the time!

crazymonkey,

yes i'm finding the screen responsiveness extremely good. in fact, get this, earlier today there was a tiny insect, and i'm talking pretty tiny (prob about 4mm in length and 1mm in width), crawling across my screen, and the mouse pointer was moving right underneath it! we couldn't help but just watch it for a few minutes.. sad as i am, i tried to take a video, will post it on youtube or something soon if it came out well....

but if i were to take an educated guess, the touch recognition technology here is different from a tablet pc or the hordes of horrible touchscreen phones out there. it uses some sort of laser/LED technology to detect touch, rather than the actual screen having any finger pressure detectors on it. The laser 'receptors' are lined all around the border of the screen, pointing inwards, if that makes any sense...

there was no calibration required. it worked straight away...

try having a look at the manual, http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01490881.pdf

It is still rather expensive for what it is, a basic PC would cost £300, add a TV tuner for £30, a remote for £20 and an excellent 22" screen for £300 and you're paying £650 for a faster PC with a better screen.

It does seem like a nice bit of kit (apart from the biefcase styling) but does it belong on a hot deals site?

A touch screen iMac beating bit of hardware for far below RRP? I'd say so. I was thinking an iMac would be good as most of my gaming has switched to consoles now but this has just changed my mind. Bargainnnnn! Wonder if a 24" will appear with blue ray ;).

Looked at this last week but was put off since the new model is around the corner - HP TouchSmart IQ800.

Will wait and see what that one can do.

Still a good deal. Much better than paying the RRP.

yep agreed the other pc could be (only a little) faster (although not sure if you could fit in genuine 64-bit windows vista premium and 4GB of RAM in all that, with card readers, wifi, bluetooth,webcam etc), but for an extra £200 you get:
a) all-in-one chassis.. ie. a pc for the size of an LCD TV--- can't put a price on this, but if your PC is for the bedroom then there is value in investing in something that looks good and fits in without taking up much space;
b) touch screen....= uniqueness, geekness, feelgood factor;
c) HP build --- not sure if this is a pro or a con as i've not had much experience with their customer service, but i think i'd pick an HP system over an ebay system given the choice. Have had a compaq evo before this which has lasted me years and years with decent upgradeability.

I should add, just for information, that certain parts of this pc are upgradeable, including the hard disk and RAM. The only thing that I would have liked to upgrade would be the graphics card.

I see your point that this is not necessarily a deal as such, it's almost sounding like a review of the IQ500. But the deal was getting the price of this PC down to £860 from a RRP of £1100 - a saving of 22% for no effort whatsoever!

It would be quite a bit faster, remember this does use a notebook CPU with only 2MB of cache and a 667Mhz FSB (a desktop dual core like the E8400 is clocked 50% faster, has twice the FSB and three times the cache). 64-bit vista is the same price as 32-bit and the other bits don't cost much.

Or you could just buy a laptop and have something that takes up even less space.

I think a seperate touchscreen would be far more fun for playing around with, and would still be cheaper than this.

Yes, I hadn't quite realised that this was selling for £1099 at other places, As that's the case this is definitely a hot deal.
