HP Touchsmart All-In-One 300-1040A

Price: $1548

We've reviewed several models in HP's Touchsmart range of all-in-one PCs with touch screens, and we have largely been impressed. The Touchsmart All-In-One 300-1040A is HP's cheapest model yet, offering a 2.7GHz processor, 4GB of RAM and access to Windows 7's multitouch capabilities. With kids becoming more and more accustomed to touch interfaces on smartphones and MP3 players, it only makes sense to bring them into the living room too. You can pick up this desktop PC from Officeworks for $1548.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
