Close Up: HP Touchsmart PC IQ770

Zooming in on TouchSmart PC IQ770

HP's Touchsmart system (see blog) has such a unique profile that it made us think of the distinctive look of the old AMC Gremlin (or maybe the boxier looking Saabs) and how that stood out in an odd sort of way amongst cars. The system would look just as slick in a lobby or a conference room (as sort of a kiosk device) as it would in a kitchen. Note that the front of the system is not black and silver as it looks in this photo. It is actually all black and that silver part is simply a reflection of light. At 1440x900, the 16:10 aspect ratio display's resolution is well equipped to support the system's various multimedia features (described in subsequent images).
