HP Touchsmart PC and consumer tablet at CES

HP Touchsmart IQ770 PC

HP showed off the TouchSmart IQ770 at CES which we first heard about back in November.

The IQ770 will come with an AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core processor, 2GB RAM, a 320GB hard drive, an NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 graphics card with 256MB dedicated video memory, a DVD-burner with Lightscribe technology, a built-in 1.3MP camera, and both an NTSC TV tuner and over-the-air ATSC high-definition television tuner. It will use a 19-inch wide touch-screen display, integrated with the PC base, with a dashboard-like interface featuring a number of widget applications (calendar, weather, etc). It will run Microsoft® Windows® Vista Home Premium.

HP also showed off the ultra-portable Pavilion tx1000 notebook which features an optional touchscreen that can be turned 180 degrees and flatten into a slate to capture hand-written notes and drawings.

The tx1000 will come with a 12.1-inch touch screen, an AMD Turion 64 X2 mobile processor, integrated Wi-Fi (and upcoming optional WWAN), a 1.3MP camera and NVIDIA graphics and large hard drive.

Both the IQ770 and tx1000 are expected to be available from HP at the end of the month to coincide with the consumer launch of Windows Vista.
