PCMag reviews the HP TouchSmart IQ770, an all-in-one computer with a touchscreen display, and conlcudes: “Is the HP TouchSmart IQ770 an iMac killer? In a word: maybe. In its current incarnation the IQ770 certainly outclasses the current Windows-based Editors’ Choice the Sony Vaio VGC-LS1. I am going to hold my final judgement on the IQ770 until we put it up against other Vista-based PCs, but so far I like what I see.”

Then I go look at the pics and read about it. Blah!!!

as all of the other “all-in-ones”…
Computer parts don’t all have the same lifespan. Things wear out, other things need upgraded to expand the life of the machine. These make it very hard to keep up on the latest and greatest.
After 2 or 3 years, I usually upgrade my computer (RAM, GPU, the latest optical drive, etc…) then I get another 2 or 3 years out of it. With these all-in-ones, you need to replace it after a couple of years and pass it on to the kids.
Although I might not be the intended audience…I usually have a couple of towers on (and under) my desk…
