The HP TouchSmart 610 stands out from the other all-in-one PCs on the market with its large 23-inch touchscreen display, which can be adjusted to a 60-degree inclination for use like a giant tablet, be they drawing or writing on the screen. Incorporating the latest Intel second generation Core i3-560 processor and 4GB memory, the TouchSmart 610 offers the performance one need to run his or her office applications, programming or multimedia software, and even 3D gaming. There is hardly anything to fault except that we find it is quite heavy, a thing to note when you have to take it out of the box.

You must be guessing, for such powerful system with touchscreen feature, it will cost around $2,500 or more. Well, you guess wrong.
