HP announces the TouchSmart 610 and 9300 reclining computers
by Mark R
I’m not certain why Hewlett-Packard chose to unveil these new computers after the hubbub of the Super Bowl, but they have a definite plan for these new style of computers.
The HP TouchSmart 610 Consumer PC and the HP TouchSmart 9300 Elite Business PC have the unique design that you see here, which enables the user to recline and dip the curved screen at a 60-degree angle. Each of them have a 23-inch 1080p HD display with a multitouch screen.
Hit the jump to find out more specs about each of the models.
The 610 has Intel or AMD and Intel processors with Hulu, Netflix, Rhapsody, as well as Twitter. It also features 16GB of RAM, 1 TB of storage, Blu-Ray optical drive, and Beats Audio Speakers. There is even a model that includes R.U.S.E., a strategy game by Ubisoft.
As for the 9300, it has Intel Sandy Bridge processors, Windows 7, 160GB solid-state drive, and 2 Megapixel webcam. My Source also says that the 9300 Elite is made for “hospitality, retail, and health care” industries in mind. I’m not certain what that means.
As of now, we know that the TouchSmart 610 will arrive in the United States on Wednesday this week for a price of $899.99. As for the TouchSmart 9300 Elite, it should be out in May, but we don’t have a price as yet.
