A couple of weeks back, I was invited by Waggener Edstrom along a group of other bloggers at Brozeit for the launch of the HP TouchSmart, one of the latest range of Multimedia PC by Hewlett Packard.
Already there were a number of bloggers who have reached there when I arrived. It was a relatively packed night at Brozeit, considering that it was only a Tuesday night.
I saw a number of units around the area being covered with a purple cloth and Claudia cleverly decides to immediately sit next to one of them.
After a quick introduction by the organizers, comes the unveiling of the HP Touchsmart. At first glance, I thought that the PC looked very sleek with its shiny black look. It looked really nice indeed.
This is the front of the HP TouchSmart with its large 22 inch screen with a front webcam. Definitely useful for people (like me) who likes to do videochats.
This is the left side. What is nice that there in an inbuilt tv tuner as well as a tv out. I could connect my cable tv and watch cable with this.
And on the right side, there is a DVD burner along a card reader. It’s great that I would not need so much external devices unlike my current settings with my current pc setup. More on the specs here
Winston, one of the product manager did a quick demonstration which was really made it look quite impressive. Using his fingers, he pressed on the monitor to navigate and flip through different applications. Actually, I thought that it was really cool! It was like seeing an early version of Minority Report.
Pretty soon, it was our turn to play with the unit and boy did we have so much fun! I saw Nadnut scribbling on a notepad using her fingernails, Hisham trying to play 3D chess and I was facinated with Daniel – who looked very professional using the touch screen.
Smoothly he manoeuvred the navigation and even played with the applets in the tablet and made poor Peter have clock eyes like these!
Here is a quick video :
