HP releases TouchSmart PC, Omni100

Announces TouchSmart Apps Center for one-touch access to free and subscription-based apps

By CBR Staff Writer

HP has unveiled the TouchSmart310 PC, which features the most advanced version of the company’s TouchSmart software to date.

The company also announced the TouchSmart Apps Center for one-touch access to free and subscription-based applications, as well as the Omni100, which offers the performance users demand from a tower and monitor in an all-in-one design.

The new version of TouchSmart software transforms the desktop into a "Magic Canvas" that enables users to drag applications, music, photos, videos and Web content directly onto the desktop as "Magnets."

Multilayered wallpapers bring depth and perspective to the screen, while the new "Carousel" and "Magic Menu" allow users to locate applications and content – all with the touch of a finger.

The new version of the TouchSmart software will be available on the TouchSmart310 desktop PC and the current TouchSmart 600 desktop PC.

HP said that its convertible TouchSmart tm2 notebook PC will include updated TouchSmart Mobile 2.0 software, which allows users to drag multimedia content to use the notebook’s desktop like a personal canvas and access applications through a carousel view.

The tm2 features a capacitive multitouch, 12.1-inch diagonal, LED BrightView touchscreen display and Intel Core i3 and i5 processors and AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5450 switchable graphics.

The fourth generation of the TouchSmart PC features 20-inch HD display, built-in wireless LAN, webcam, front-firing speakers, an optional TV tuner, AMD VISION processors and Radeon graphics and up to 2 terabytes (TB) of storage.

The all-in-one design of the Omni100 offers users a 20-inch HD display, AMD VISION technology, up to 1TB of storage and new version of MediaSmart software.

HP Personal Systems Group senior vice president James Mouton said that each generation of TouchSmart is a reflection of what the company has learned from its customers, complemented by the latest technologies.

"The TouchSmart PC’s unique interface lets users do more than just basic computing – it acts as the anchor of one’s digital lifestyle, encouraging creativity, organisation and a truly immersive experience," Mouton said.
